I actually had some negative side effects from wasting my money and time on this terrible movie. The trailer made this movie look more like a psychological horror pic but instead we got a typical murder mystery which was badly acted (except for Rooney Mara, who was excellent) and boring. You can see the plot lines a mile away through thick fog. The so called twists weren't very twisty but were predictable. The first half of this movie was like watching a documentary on how bad the pharmaceutical industry is and it is pretty bad so good for the producers to bring some light on the criminals in that industry. The second half was the predictable part with no real surprises. When my popcorn was gone, I should have left. One bright spot to note. Rooney Mara's performance was so good, it almost made seeing this horrible movie worthwhile.

Wonderful plot ......great acting........not a wasted moment or segment. This is an example of what pros can accomplish. Great film making, I hope the director does not retire.

This movie has to be on my list of one of the worst movies ever... I really do not recommend this movie. The plot was terrible and the ending made no sense.... Terrible

Great script and acting...a must see! I found Side Effects to be fun, engaging, exciting and provocative. A thriller that makes you think you know what might happen, but surprises you with twist and turns.

This is a masterpiece of a psychological thriller. We loved it! There is a well written clever plot, fantastic writing and characters and top notch acting. Such a refreshing change from the non-stop violence of most thrillers.
