    The romance here is rich and the laughs plentiful.

    It’s a tantalizing idea - a little rom-com sugar to help the Big Pharma exposé pill go down -but Slattery-Moschkau is simply not a writer of the caliber necessary to pull off that delicate balancing act.
  3. 40
    The story lurches from heavy-handed satire to heavy-handed drama. Heigl gives a winning performance, though Slattery-Moschkau seldom misses an opportunity to show her prancing around in her underwear.
  4. There is a great, even revolutionary movie to be made about pharmaceutical companies in America. Side Effects is definitely not it.
