If you were waiting for a chance to laugh your heart out, all you need to do is buy a ticket to watch "The Other Woman". The director of "The Notebook" brings his charm to the romantic comedy film, written by Melissa Stack, who makes her debut in the cinematic world and comes up with great dialogues, funny jokes and some fair ideas about modern day dating policies.
The film goes over the subject of cheating with a fine-tooth comb, but nevertheless also covers trust issues, friendships, complicated relationships, heavy drinking, bad decisions, good decisions, revenge, Kate Upton’s flawlessness and last, but not least, waxing. And with all previously mentioned, it stays true to the goal of every comedy movie… to make you laugh.
Starring Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton, as broken-hearted girls, the three will have you rolling in the aisles almost every minute of the movie, except of one scene with Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, which I still wonder how it made the final cut. You’ll know it, when you see it!
Leslie Mann does an amazing job, playing Kate King, the wife of an unfaithful husband, who battles not to lose her mind after she finds out, that her husband is not really training for the marathon. And although most of you will be going to the cinema to see Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton, in the end of the movie you will be leaving with the best impressions about Leslie Mann, who just rocks with her performance.
That does not mean of course, that Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton do not do an excellent job. Cameron Diaz, portrays Carly Whitten, a successful Manhattan attorney, who is the perfect woman as she has the package any man would wish for - yet she is not irreplaceable, especially when "the lack of sex" is on the table. Just when Carly tries to explain to everyone that she is really not a mistress, as she did not know that the man she was dating was married, Kate Upton’s Amber or also known as "The Boobs" from the official trailer, comes into the picture, as the new other woman, who knew she was sleeping with a married man.
As the mistress of the group, Amber raises high the group’s average size of a bra and serves those uniquely fresh and funny moments, that are usually delivered by special cartoon characters, like "Ice Age"’s Scrat, "Despicable Me"’s Minions and "Madagascar"’s Penguins.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, plays Mark King, the cheating husband, who develops multimillion projects from his wife’s ideas. Mark is the main villain of the movie and unites the trio, who will make you wish for a sequel.
The cast also includes Don Johnson, Taylor Kinney and Nicki Minaj. Don Johnson, plays the bad-ass, playboy father of Cameron Diaz’s Carly, while Taylor Kinney, portrays the brother of Leslie Mann’s Kate. Fans of Nicki Minaj, who plays Lydia, Carly’s assistant, will love her even more, those of you who dislike her though, will have to bear with it. All in all, the singer and also now actress, brings her attitude, which at some points is funny, although other times the energy that she lays down stands out and not in a good way.
To sum up, the negative reviews of the film need to give it a rest, as it seems that some people fail to understand that "The Other Woman" is a comedy and not a scientific movie, which will open your educational horizons. The one element that this movie promises and delivers is to make you giggle even days after you watch it!
P.S. Women in the audience should not expect too much six pack action. However the male audience will be able to enjoy literally some big advantages, like Kate Upton’s cleavage and Nicki Minaj’s bottom.
