Side Effects: Reviewed

The other night I went to a movie I knew absolutely nothing about nor had ever heard of.  Sometimes I do that.  It’s pretty hard to be disappointed if you don’t have any expectations.  Well, I did have one expectation.  I expected my invention of combing popcorn and Peanut Butter M&Ms to taste really good. Mission accomplished.

Anyways, I went to “Side Effects.”  Jude Law and Catherine Zeta-Jones are in it.  So is Channing Tatum.  Or is Tatum Channing?  I can never remember.  Whatever, he didn’t need to learn very many lines because he’s not in it very long (spoiler alert.)  Maybe I should have put the spoiler alert at the beginning of the sentence.  I will let history decide that.

Anywho, I loved this movie.  It’s gripping, smart, moving and plausible.  I guess I don’t know a lot about Jude Law but he was enjoyable as a psychiatrist caught in the middle of some shenanigans.

If you need car crashes, explosions, and chase scenes, skip this movie.  If you want a witty film where you find yourself trying to figure out the “end game,” check it out.  Definitely worth it.
