Three sentence movie reviews: Side Effects

This movie was chock full of great acting by Rooney Mara and Jude Law* and a twisty, turn-y plot that I advise you to do your best not to discover any part of before you enter the theater.  Immediately after the movie I wasn’t quite sure how I felt due to the many plot twists, but after lively discussion with the movie-going companion of the day, I decided I liked it.  I don’t really want to think that Mr. Soderbergh will


 stop making movies, but if so, this was a good one to end with.

Where watched:  Regal City Center Stadium 12

Cost:  Free, thanks to the generous folks at Pike Schemes.

*sadly, Mr. Tatum’s performance was awful due to massive amounts of jaw-clenching (he’s regressed, just when he was doing so well) and declaim-off-of-cue-cards-type acting.  Catherine Zeta-Jones was also painful to watch.  That said, this was still a good movie.

  1. Well, I can already tell from the cover that Catherine Zeta-Jones's character must be smart because she's wearing glasses!

  2. Jan. Yes indeed, that was one of my problems with this movie. If you ever see it, I'll tell you another of my problems. I can tell you now that it was a plot twist and one I found to be a bit of an eye roll. But I still liked the movie!
