Critic Reviews for Side Effects
While Slattery-Moschkau is obviously coming from a very earnest place -- a card before the final credits compares the annual budget for the pharmaceutical industry to that of her own film -- it doesn't make the overall effort any less clumsy.
Spectacularly lame dialogue, stilted direction, amateurish production values and a soundtrack that distracts from the film as a whole.
of all the people affected by big drug company scams, do we really care about the ethical dilemmas faced by gorgeous salespeople?
This is an agitprop effort to get viewers to think about the side effects of one industry's profit motive and how that affects consumers.
Audience Reviews for Side Effects
A scathing demonstration of the creeping corruption a fat payday inspired. How an honest, well meaning person can become a liar for cash, and how truth can be just as deceptive when not the whole truth. Really, this movie is 60% fresh, but Heigl, in her prime, in bra and panties, jumping on her bed for ten minutes of the movie, is, for anyone who enjoys a healthy female form, delightful.
A very interesting look inside the pharmaceutical industry, but what keeps this chick flick from hitting it's mark are the bad, sometimes strange acting and the gross directing from Kathleen Slattery-Moschkau. Good for women i guess and some men might find it somewhat interesting but it's nothing memorable or worth watching a second time, probably good for a date night at best.
This movie was very cute. Heigl as a sell out pharmaceutical seller is great fun to watch. I love her romance with her ex-coworker - they are the cutest couple in a low budget movie. I love chick flicks with happy endings and any movie that ends by sticking it to the man, This movie has both and kept me entertained the whole time.
