...with an extremely smart and sexy thriller. All the players are perfectly cast, the performances spot on and the plot secrets revealed with great skill. I want to see it again to catch what I missed the first time.

Good Way to spend an Evening

Rooney Mara does an outstanding job as the main character. The story builds and keeps you guessing as you see Jude Law's life crumble after events that he could never have predicted. The plot twists and turns and overall it was excellent. I would definitely recommend.

Side Effects wil pull you sideways!

I love movies where you expect something and find that the plot takes a dramtic turn. The events, as they unfold, will grab your attention and no let go until it ends. It's a story of how some depend on drugs to make them happy, how greed can keep the best treatment from happening, and how some can use deceit to get what they want. But be careful, the bad guys are not who you expect....

A superb suspense tale

If director Steven Soderbergh truly retires from the Hollyewood movie business permanently, Side Effects will prove he left at the top of his game. Credible characters, chilling secrets, and a gripping story combine with perfect pacing and a lethal atmosphere that grips the viewer by the neck. Only, I hope Soderbergh *WON'T* retire from movie making -- I think he's hit his stride for some time, now, and he has a lot more movies in him.

Plot twists I never saw coming! Very unlike the predictability of most Hollywood movies. So well done and riveting! Very intriguing story line. I can't recommend it enough.
