The Other Woman In Theaters
I went in expecting cliche situations, cheesy dialogue and the emasculation of the male species. Wrong, I was laughing, sympathetic and understanding of the women’s journey and the naivete of the male lead not recognizing his short comings. Writer, Melissa Stack focused on the bond and the relationship forged by these three diverse women brought on by betrayal in love.
After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly (played by Cameron Diaz) meets the wife he’s been cheating on played by Leslie Mann. Soon after another affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot mutual revenge on the three-timing husband played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz have great screen chemistry as Mann’s character’s insinuates herself into Carly’s life forcing her into a friendship. For me the weak link was Kate Upton’s character who is the third woman in the triangle and though not much acting is required of her the movie retained it’s freshness and comedic flavor. On Nicki Minjai who plays Carly’s receptionist not much I can say about that, however while the Other Woman may not be the movie for every one, I sat back ate my popcorn and had a great time.
