It’s difficult to write a through review for this movie for fear of giving anything away. There are so many twists and turns in Side Effects that one wrong word or expression could give away an important detail.
That being said I will tell you it’s a great movie that will keep wondering till the last moment when everything comes together.
There’s a good bit of psychiatric and pharmacological jargon but I think the public has been so educated by television and the internet that we’re not left with any confusion over the dialog.
The acting and directing is spot on.
RunPee Mom is our emotional bedrock. Without her, RunPee never would have lasted a decade as an app (which is since the dawn of time in internet years). She’s our biggest cheerleader and an unending source of unconditional love. She works cheerfully and tirelessly, seeing any movie we ask of her, writing interesting reviews, and being our…well…MOM. Her genres of choice: kiddie flicks, animated movies, emotional dramas, historical features, war films, diverse biographies, and even dense, diabolically plotted thrillers. She knows more about famous and infamous figures in history than said figures probably knew about themselves. She’s the Quiz Manager for the RunPee.com blog, and our resident movie celebrity/trivia expert. If you’ve taken a RunPee Quiz, you’ve most likely been given a virtual hug by RunPee Mom.
