Thought provoking

I was pleasantly surprised because i had no expectations- definitely not your average storyline, so thumbs up to the screen writer. However easy spoiler alert, so if u are interested in seeing it DO NOT read further into my comments. Great casting though btw. -------------- It was funny how they took the idea of the flaw of the psychiatry/medical system and made a thriller out of it. It's funny how common it is how patients lie to doctors so that they would be diagnosed the way the patient wants.

Side effects.

If I had read the reviews before we went to the show I probably wouldn't have gone. My husband and i both thought the first half was boring but OMG when I finally figuered out the plot, several times actually gasping, I thought the show was actually good.Katherine Zeta Jones played a different role than I've ever seen her play before. Jude Law was fantastic and Channing Tatum looked good and his wife had a great role. Depression is a horrible sickness and at first I thought I don't want to see this but I really did enjoy the final outcome and glad we went.

Wow! You Won't See It Coming!

What an entertaining movie - well acted by all. The twists and turns are such fun - you really cannot anticipate where this will go next so just let go and enjoy the ride. Jude Law does is quite convincing as the bewildered psychiatrist and Rooney Mara is quite convincing as the "victim" of unanticipated side effects. It's hard to say more without spoiing it all - just go!

Good plot and story line

If you can put the plausibility factor setting at mid point you will probably enjoy this yarn with Jude Law carrying the weight of this story. There are several gaps in the storyline that stretch things thin. A few surprises do ensue and you are caught by some that are credible but thinly so.. On a scale of 1 - 10 with 10 being out of this world I'd give it a 6.4.
