      Steve D I side with the critics with this trash. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/11/23 Full Review John M When Vincent Canby reviewed this film in the NYTimes he called it a "schlock masterpiece", and I agree. This is an entertaining hoot. Just go with it and see if you don't agree. As an aside, it has a beautiful score that gives serious heft to the enjoyment of this film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Lurid twaddle at least has beautiful location shooting and good work from Susan Sarandon to recommend it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Something to while away time. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Watched this with my Grandmother and had a great time laughing at it. Marie-France Pisier is the worst actress ever (we guessed she came from Emmanuelle-style soft core films) and everyone is so dumb it's hard to take any of it seriously. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Marie-France Pisier was superb. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) The Other Side of Midnight is instant camp. [Full review in Spanish] Aug 16, 2023 Full Review Steve Warren The Barb (Atlanta) A trashy romantic melodrama; but it's slick and well-paced. May 5, 2023 Full Review Tony Vandenberg Washington Blade Pretentious hokum. May 23, 2022 Full Review David MacDonald Philadelphia Gay News When one has to use Valley of the Dolls for comparison, well, you can rest assured that The Other Side of Midnight is not about to become a classic motion picture. May 27, 2020 Full Review Ruth Batchelor Los Angeles Free Press The good news is that the screenwriters have stayed very close to the book and the bad news is that the filmmakers have cast the leads so poorly we don't give a damn. Oct 23, 2019 Full Review Fernando Trueba El Pais (Spain) The film is disappointing from all points of view. [Full Review in Spanish] Jul 30, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
