Everyone in The Other Side of the Bed, alas, has the depth of a character in a TV commercial.

The dance steps are more Drew Carey than Gene Kelly.

The lemon-drop-colored palette and soap-opera-colored conversation about sex owes a lot -- too much -- to Pedro Almodóvar's influential, and far more original, concoctions of style and pathos.

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.

it's impossible for me to completely dismiss a movie that features not one but two Spanish women....The rest of [this] sex romp/romantic comedy...can't be so summarily praised

These people deserve each other - but not you.

All the mix-ups contrived to spice up its witless central foursome's fornication rondelet depend exclusively on exhumed notions of homosexuality and gender-rolling.

It's hard to take any of this seriously when the cast is full of Guess jeans models, but the homophobia lurking under every plot twist is a serious turnoff.

Call it Stepford Almodóvar

Like VH-1 with a Spanish soundtrack...reasonably colorful and energetic, but ultimately it's just too empty and ephemeral to matter.

Because we're never made to feel that either couple is really that blissful in the first place, we can't get too worked up about all the lies and double-crosses and twists of fate they endure.
August 27, 2003
A big fluff ball of a sex farce that's so light and flimsy it's a wonder they were able to thread it through the projector.
August 28, 2003
Lame and inane, but a huge hit in Spain.

Lightheartedness is one thing, but trivializing cheating while failing to do so with humor or creativity makes for an unsuccessful if not unseemly film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
August 29, 2003
A sex farce whose sex sags and whose farce is forced.
August 29, 2003
Director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro fails to provide a consistent tone for his movie, which totters between earnest realism and camp.

The musical numbers are not terribly exciting or professional (they don't seem intended to be).
