May 11, 2004
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
March 5, 2004
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.

March 5, 2004
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.
August 29, 2003
Director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro fails to provide a consistent tone for his movie, which totters between earnest realism and camp.

Gloriously frothy fun.

Peppy, funny and sensual.
August 29, 2003
A sex farce whose sex sags and whose farce is forced.
August 29, 2003
Everyone in The Other Side of the Bed, alas, has the depth of a character in a TV commercial.

Consistently sleek but works best if no more is expected of it than a mild diversion.

August 28, 2003
A funny and frothy sex comedy from Spain with a very appealing cast -- and mediocre musical numbers.

A satire of contemporary sexual warfare that leaves you smiling but also stung.

It's clever, raunchy and often funny.

August 28, 2003
Though there's nothing startlingly new here, there's a freshness and vigor to the acting, and the crisscrossing love affairs hold your interest.

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 27, 2003
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
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.

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.
