    Imagine if the gender roles were reversed. This movie would cause an uproar. Not to mention the movie is cliche, completely done before and overall just boring.

    Cameron Diaz (doing her usual shtick) discovers that her lover (handsome Nikolaj Coster Waldau from "Game of Thrones") actually has a wife (Leslie Mann manically trying to be kooky). The 2 women team up with his new GF (Kate Upton, obviously cast for her boobs) to plot revenge. This is a promising concept, but the script is too talky and almost completely void of funny lines. To make matters worse, the comic situations and physical gags land with a thud. Nicki Minaj's supporting role provides the few laughs. The only positive thing to say about this film is that there is plenty of energy. Expand

    Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Dianne Keaton in “The First Wife’s Club” and Jane Fonda, Lilly Tomlin and Dolly Parton in “9 To 5” all did it better and with less vulgarities.

    “The Other Woman” once again show that women can be as base, vulgar, rude and crude as men can be in films. This kind of film always make me think of teenage boys giggling at vomit, dogs poop, men having diarrhea or
    walking through glass walls and it all happens here.

    Carly (Cameron Diaz), supposedly a very smart upscale lawyer , is having an affair with Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) who after two months, trying to surprise him, finds out that he is married to Kate (Leslie Mann), a real ditsy character who turns out to be the smartest of all though that isn’t believable! Kate reaches out to Carly and bogs the movie down with childish antics until they find out that Mark is cheating on both of them with Amber (Kate Upton) a young, blond, big boob gal who finds out that Mark is cheating on her and the three decide to ‘get’ Mark. It is then that the real vulgarity of the screenplay, by Melissa K. Stack, kicks in and all the slapstick ‘comedy’ comes to a head.

    In a film where the only character, Phil (Taylor Kinney), Kate’s good looking single brother, who doesn’t curse, doesn’t anything vulgar and is talented is also the only person in the film not into games. Don Johnson is unrecognizable as Carly’s 5 times married father. Nick Cassavetes direction is all over the map, uneven and what looks like no stated purpose.

    I am still trying to understand how Cameron Diaz became one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood.

    In all fairness I will say many in the audience were laughing quite often.

    Sure, you'll have a giggle or two, but The Other Woman is a ridiculous movie that could have been good if it weren't for the bland story and laughably bad twists. The original Midler, Hawn and Keaton acting bunch has been replaced with Diaz, Upton, and Mann. The Other Woman is a bad movie, sure there are laughs here and there but the whole movie is slow, rubbish and filled with bad PG-13 humor. Don't watch this one in theatres. Expand

    I'm not afraid to admit the fun I had with these ladies. Even still, a typical romantic-ish-comedy. Oh, but, Kate Upton should never act again. That's one thing I know for sure.

    Another obnoxious, dumb and ridiculous female garbage film. Not funny, not interesting, and uses every cliché in the book and top it off with one of the most irritating characters I've seen in awhile, Leslie Mann. The Other Women desperately tries to be funny, but fails miserably.

    This movie is awful not funny trash. Cameron Diaz is the best thing about this train wreck. These women do some of the dumbest things. Just go re-watch Bridesmaids. D-

    There was big comedy potential here. However some of the main comedy moments are overplayed and delivered poorly at times in the form of Leslie Mann. We do still find ourselves laughing occasionally just not as often as we should have.

    So basically this movie is just another John Tucker Must Die and if anyone remembers that horrible movie you already know what happens in this movie and so you should just stay away from it and save yourself the money and time. The only likable thing about this movie is the cast even though i will say i have never really been a fan of leslie Mann she has always seemed annoying to me. Nick Cassavetes has done quite a few chick flicks with The Notebook, My Sister's Keeper, Unhook the Stars those are at least watchable but not this crap. The movie would be tolerable at least if it was funny but its not i laughed a max of 3 times seriously.

    Overall i give it a 4.0 Also can we please not let Nicki Minaj become an actress PLEASE!!!

    Worst 2014 movie full of male hatred, male abuse, plot holes and stereotypes. Despite a great cast full of talented actors, this movie isn't even funny.

    Unfortunately, this is a pathetic excuse for an "original comedy". There are very few jokes. Relying on a well known cast to hold it up (the overly praised Cameron Diaz, the decently funny Leslie Mann, the gorgeous Kate Upton, popular singer/rapper Nicki Minaj, and GOT star Nikolaj Waldau), "The Other Woman" has about 10-15 minutes of halfway interesting content. The story takes TOO LONG to kick off and the revenge aspect of the show (while being "funny") gets lost in the shuffle.

    And to be completely frank, if several women found out their lover/husband was cheating on them in real life, they would have clubbed each other to death instead of "teaming up" to get revenge.

    Truly poor script with hardly any laughs.....More sad than anything and empty. The only thing visually interesting is seeing that Cameron Diaz's body is genetically superior to that of a 21 year old...... No reason that the mistress would even care and you do not sense a connection with any of the characters. Leslie Mann seems to do the best......

    I thought Anchor Man Two was bad, but The Other Woman has it beat! There was no plot and we kept waiting for something to happen- nothing did. I really can't believe that anyone thought this movie was at all entertaining!

    Just signed up to review this movie how terrible it was. Boring and not funny at all. The people who leave high reviews must be paid by movie producers spammers. This movie should be considered drama and not comedy.

    A doomed premise from the beginning. All the characters don't feel the need to shut up and corner the man about all his wrong doings and get him the serious psychiatric help the man needs. Also, all the characters are unlikable. Nicki Minaj has some genuinely good moments, but she is not given the screen time the film actually needs to garner some laughs. Cameron Diaz deserves better than this. Leslie Mann deserves a Razzie after this horrible performance. Such a shame that it isn't even a disappointment. I give this film 10% of a good movie. Expand

    Slight plot made even slighter by slight acting. Thin screeches and jokes that wear thin, don't make for fat comedy. Timing so far out needs an alarm clock to wake the audience up.

    The Other Woman starts as an intelligent revenge comedy with a talented cast and great concept yet fails to deliver anything worth remembering. To be quite frank the story is atrocious. The concept shows promise and initially the film delivers that but it seems as if the writer ran out of ideas after the hour mark and felt the need to have a two hour film. The quality of the jokes dropped severely with the story becoming an incoherent mess in order to arrive at the very forced climax. Expand

    "The Other Woman" 10 Scale Rating: 3.5 (Bad) ...

    The Good: There was a stretch in the middle where the film actually becomes entertaining. It was a fleeting and fast moving 20 minutes or so, but it was a solid 20 minutes. The film was billed as a revenge film where three women get revenge on a man who was lying to all of them. When the film actually follows that story, it's not that
    bad. Cameron Diaz is the lone bright spot as far as performances go. Her turn from heartless ice queen to warm and caring was believable.

    The Bad: Sadly, the film is not as advertised and the overwhelming majority of the film has little to nothing to do with revenge and is filled with all kinds of other useless material. Leslie Mann, usually good in comedic roles, was annoying and unlikeable. Most of her scenes involved her with a scrunched up "crying face" moaning "woe is me". It got old very early on. Kate Upton was vacant and stiff. They could have found any number of beautiful women with actual acting skills and put them in the role. Upton was useless. The story itself starts off poorly and the first hour or so is difficult to get through. The film's final act (after rebounding somewhat) is a let down and poorly done. There are some sudden slapstick style scenes in the end that made no sense and felt out of place.

    A few lowbrow laughs… but far too many one-note characters, performances, and plot points to make them worth showing up for.

    And yet, all three women are less watchable and amusing that Nicki Minaj as Carly’s legal assistant Lydia.

    A montage-happy, occasionally unpleasant film that’s still strangely watchable, The Other Woman is almost saved by a cast that’s … well, likable isn’t quite the word.
