After many fake-outs, Steven Soderbergh's "last" film, "Side Effects," hits theaters this Friday.

The film stars Rooney Mara as a pill-popping lady, coping with her husband's impending release from prison. Catherine Zeta Jones as well as Soderbergh's faves -- Channing Tatum and Jude Law -- round out the cast.

But if you think laughter is the best medicine (yuck, yuck!), the new comedy "Identity Thief" is also opening this weekend. Reteaming with his "Horrible Bosses" helmer Seth Gordon, Jason Bateman plays a man whose identity has been stolen by a frosted-hair shop-a-holic, played by Melissa McCarthy.

Before you make your selection at the cinema this weekend, take a look at what the critics are saying about these two new flicks.
