The Other Woman

Posted on April 27, 2014


The Other Woman – Carly (Cameron Diaz) has it all – perfect place to live, perfect place to lawyer in, and a new boyfriend until she finds a wife is included. Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is the cheating boyfriend/husband married to Kate (Leslie Mann). After bonding over drinks and girl stuff, Carly and Kate team up to take Mark down. Another of Mark’s girlfriends, Amber (Kate Upton), soon joins in.

It’s kind of a silly premise and sometimes slides into outlandishness. But Leslie Mann makes it worthwhile. She’s ditzy and pathetic. She wants to go to “brain camp.” She goes into a Elin Woods rage with a golf club. She dresses like a Ninja for a spying outing. She totally steals the show.

There’s lots of beautiful scenery from the Hamptons to the Bahamas. Beautiful clothes and shoes. Kate Upton does her famous dance. Don Johnson plays Carly’s father. Nicki Minaj has a made for her part as Carly’s assistant. The movie is billed as a romantic comedy, but it may be more fun to go with your besties.
