At 18, fresh from high school, Marina, Ignacio, Adam and Mimi, school mates bonded by fate, shared a dream about adult life, a dream of fame, success, perfect skin and that one endless, true love that, surely, was waiting just around the corner for each one of them. But 30's arrived, and none of the sweet promises of youth was fulfilled. Alone, failed and frustrated, all four are forced to stop and look around to try to understand where it all went wrong, and find an emergency fix for their lives, before it's too late, and happiness escapes through their fingers forever. Secondary Effects is the bitter coming of age comedy that follows their steps in the search for lost dreams, lost hair and good sex, at least, if true love turns out to be a mirage. Written by
Alejandra Gollás, like her character Mimí, is a former child star. She starred in "Quinceañera", the soap opera that is briefly shown in the movie, and her mother in that role was Julieta Egurrola, that plays her mother in Efectos Secundarios too. Also, she was the title character in the musical Annie; hence, the singing of "Tomorrow" in the car scene with mom. See more »

I'm 24 and at the end of the movie I realize that I don't want to spend the rest of this time whit only one girl.
This movie is about four thirty-years-old ex school partners that are reunited for the high school generation party. The movie has everything that should matter:
1.- Good story 2.- Good interpretations 3.- Good look 4.- Good Sex scenes, and 5.- Good score (music I mean)
I'm not lying when i say that this movie is worth watching, it is one of the best movies I saw since "Sexo Pudor y Lágrimas" "Sex, sweat and tears". Probably I wasn't too excited of see Tony Dalton in this one but is acting was OK. And dude, the speech at the end... it'll catch you unarmed and will knock you up. It is impossible to escape for those truths.
Better watching with a friend in the plan of "I'm just your friend, but I know someday somehow You'll be mine"
So, that's all. Enjoy it!
