Critic Reviews for The Other Side of the Bed

All Critics (41) | Top Critics (18)

A movie in which insufferable yuppies boogie away inside the bubble of their own emotional immaturity. Truly, this is the unhinged joy of the deeply oblivious.

Martinez-Lazaro's blend of erotic farce and Europop musical is so blandly slick and skin-cream deep, it barely leaves an impression, never mind anything to embrace.

If you're looking for an amusing endorsement for cheating your socks off, you've come to the right place.

... the characters aren't all that fascinating but it moves along quickly and the musical numbers keep it hopping.

Sep 2, 2003

Director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro fails to provide a consistent tone for his movie, which totters between earnest realism and camp.

Gloriously frothy fun.

Audience Reviews for The Other Side of the Bed

This is the fascinating Spanish sexy romantic comedy... with a musical twist. Sparklingly clever and funny, this is a relationships comedy in an almost opera bouffe style with a measured dose of slapstick. Music - songs with funny lyrics (I'm happy it shows in English subtitles) - and sprightly choreography more than highlight the story. Spanish director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro creatively uses song and dance to bridge narrative portions, summarise a fast shifting plot-line and bring the viewer along in what otherwise would, however good the acting, be a fairly conventional and oft-told story of couples checking out their best friends in the sack. Natalia Verbeke and Paz Vegas are really delicious and attractive for the men's eyes with their perfect bodies and breasts and beautiful faces.
