From Academy Award® winning director Steven Soderbergh (Traffic) comes this suspenseful and provocative tale of intrigue starring Channing Tatum, Academy Award® nominees Rooney Mara and Jude Law, and Academy Award® winner Catherine Zeta-Jones. After her husband (Tatum) is released from prison, Emily (Mara) begins suffering from terrifying anxiety and turns to psychiatrist Dr. Banks (Law) for help. But when Banks prescribes an experimental drug for her, the side effects have chilling and deadly consequences. Full of unexpected twists, Side Effects is the sexy psychological thriller that critics are calling “wildly unpredictable!” (Marlow Stern, Newsweek)



  • Nice movie

    By Daniel Kordev
  • Good. Could have been better

    By BSerracin
    Good plot. Clever in its twists and turns. Could have gotten deeper and better. As is, entertaining tale set against easy fall guy, Big Pharma, but the plot is really about the troubled minds and hearts turned greedy.
  • A good movie

    By Meersah
    A movie with nice plot (with twists) but with very cheesy ending
  • mediocre at best

    By papababoo
    Never really grabbed me, perfunctory performances and a predictable plot
  • Very good movie. Surprising plot twist

    By Coolrockkid
    Watching the film for the first time, my family and I had no idea who would die and who was lying. Very good film. Psychological thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat

    By Helmi Younan
    I normal don't give out 5 stars , but there's alot of truth here on what goes on in the real world , such as B.S. doctors/government/legal system >>> commiting you ( it does happen ) . Great acting and plot - very twisty . I didn't even like Jude Law , but he fit the bill for this movie - well done . Give it up to the writers on this one .
  • Wow- What A Twist

    By Sweetazahoney
    This movie was amazing! I was a little skeptical because of the hour and 45 min tim frame. The description was also very vague. However, the twist at the end made it worth the time. Definitely deserves 5 stars. Don't want to give the movie away in my review.
  • Subtle Thriller

    By Rock Hound
    This drama explores the side effects of a psych drug, Ablixa {perhaps a cross between real-life Abilify and Zyprexa}, a corrupt pair of psychiatrists who are more interested in $$$ than in their patients, and a troubled but smart heroine who may have outfoxed the pharmaceutical and medical establishments in her murdering her husband. If Hitchcock were still alive, he might have directed this film.
  • Slow and boring

    By Jason504
    I tried to get into this movie, but it never worked for me. I'm not sure who the target audience is for this movie, but it's not me. If you are determined to view this movie, rent instead of own. I can't imagine why anyone would want to watch this movie more than once.

    Anyone who was ‘surprised’ by the plot of this movie should be embarrassed at their own cognition
