This weekend, "The Other Woman," directed by Nick Cassavetes and starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton, comes to theaters. With a plot like a played-for-laughs "Les Diaboliques" (1955)—hey, wasn't that "Diabolique" (1996)?—or an aged-down "First Wives Club," or an aged-up "John Tucker Must Die," it's safe to say that it perhaps is not the most original story in the world. A woman discovers her dreamy boyfriend is actually married, and furthermore, is cheating on both her, and his wife, with other women too, and so teams up with the cuckolded wife (can wives even be cuckolded?) to exact revenge on the cheatin' lyin' no-good three-timin' Sob (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Producers, despite the hat-tip to dragged-along boyfriends and husbands in the comely shape of Kate Upton running in slow motion in a bikini, are clearly hoping to attract female viewers who are so underserved elsewhere, or so undiscriminating, that they »

Cameron Diaz is certainly no stranger to comedy, but does her latest entry into the genre bring the laughs? Well, kinda, sorta. At least, according to some of the reviews that are starting to come in for The Other Woman. The movie begins with a wife (Leslie Mann) finding out that her husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is cheating on her with Diaz's character, only for the ladies to learn that he's also being unfaithful with none other than a blond bombshell (Kate Upton). So, what's a girl—make that girls—to do? Get some revenge by forming an unlikely alliance to take down the man who wronged them, naturally. Directed by Nick Cassavetes, The Other Woman hits theaters on »
The movie marketplace has been light on movies for women and comedies recently, and Fox's “The Other Woman” is both. That makes it a very good bet to knock “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” out of the top spot at the box office this weekend. The revenge tale stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton as wronged women wreaking havoc on a three-timing spouse, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau of TV's “Game of Thrones.” Taylor Kinney and Nicki Minaj co-star. Fox is projecting an opening in the mid-to-high-teen millions for the comedy, directed by Nick Cassavetes (“My Sister's Keeper”). That should be enough. »

The Other Woman is a movie of montages, music and quite a few well-placed punchlines as it's not exactly a home run comedy, but it's a solid double. Directed by Nick Cassavetes with a screenplay by relative newcomer, Melissa Stack, the film makes good use of its female leads and situations to find comedy in the emotional hurt caused by a cheating husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) as his wife (Leslie Mann) ends up teaming with two of his mistresses (Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton) for revenge. If The Other Woman lacks anything it's an editor with any kind of confidence, believing what they have here is actually funny. Not only does the film open with a montage, but it's overloaded with them and when it's not a montage, it's one song after another, several of which having nothing to do with what's going on. In fact, the music is a curious »

There are any number of ways you could tell a story about a cheated-upon wife who teams up with her husband's two mistresses to bring the lying bastard down: you could shoot for wit and sophistication, or explore female bonding in a patriarchal world, or have lots of goofy girl-power montages set to obvious pop songs, or treat the villainous cad like Wile E. Coyote in a series of grotesque and scatological slapstick bits. Or, if you're director Nick Cassavetes making “The Other Woman,” you could do all of those things in rapid succession, resulting in a romantic comedy whose. »

Cameron Diaz plays the cool, brittle yin to Leslie Mann’s weepy, whiny yang in “The Other Woman,” an ungainly, often flat-footed yet weirdly compelling romantic dramedy about two gals who become unlikely best friends when they realize they’re being screwed (literally) by the same man. Like a watered-down “Diabolique” or a younger-skewing “First Wives Club,” this latest mainstream rebound from director Nick Cassavetes (after his dead-on-arrival 2012 indie “Yellow”) taps into the pleasures of sisterly solidarity and righteous revenge: Beneath the wobbly pratfalls and the scatological setpieces, there’s no denying the film’s mean-spirited kick, or its more-than-passing interest in what makes its women tick. These qualities should stand the slickly packaged Fox release in good stead with always-underserved female viewers as another superhero-filled summer gets under way.

Though female centric comedies have been something of a triumph of late, with the likes of Bridesmaids illuminating the big screen and TV series such as Girls doing much of the same on the smaller one, regrettably Nick Cassavetes’ The Other Woman misfires, playing up to the notion of empowerment in an all too contrived, and cliched fashion.
Cameron Diaz plays Carly, a successful lawyer who starts to fall for the handsome businessman Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). However when hoping to surprise him at his home, she discovers he has a wife, Kate (Leslie Mann), who is blissfully unaware of her husband’s misdemeanours. As the pair discover they are both being cheated on – they join forces to seek revenge on the arrogant adulterer. Then they meet Amber (Kate Upton), and discover they aren’t even the only ones…

The Other Woman is a romantic comedy with a refreshing twist centering on three women (Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton) who discover they’ve all been three-timed by the same lying, cheating Sob (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Their realization leads to an unlikely friendship as they team up to help each other get their lives back on track and teach him a lesson he’ll never forget. Opening April 25th, the female-driven revenge comedy directed by Nick Cassavetes from a screenplay by Melissa Stack also stars Taylor Kinney and Don Johnson. At a recent press conference, Diaz, Mann, Upton, Coster-Waldau and Kinney talked about the unique appeal of the story, the fun physical comedy and chemistry that developed on set, how Nine to Five was a huge influence, Kinney’s struggle to keep a straight face as Mann kept throwing him curve balls, Mann’s spectacular drunk and her excitement at »

Kate Upton doesn't miss a beat when asked what she wants in a man. "I look for someone with a sense of humor and someone I could be myself with," the model-actress told me last night at the premiere of her new comedy, The Other Woman. The Nick Cassavetes-directed film stars Leslie Mann as a Connecticut housewife who, after finding out her husband Mark (Game of Thrones' Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is cheating on her, teams up with two of his mistresses (Upton and Cameron Diaz) to seek revenge on his womanizing ways. "I've never personally heard a story like this," the 21-year-old Upton said. "Hopefully no men relate to the character of Mark." If you do, Upton said, »
In The Other Woman, the all new 20th Century Fox comedy, three women form a bond after they find out that they are all sleeping with the same man. Rather than getting mad at each other, they form an unlikely friendship, and together they set out to settle the score with their three timing lover to make sure that he learns his lesson…
Last week Wamg sat down with stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, and Taylor Kinney in a small press conference moderated by Giuliana Rancic to talk about cheating, soul mates, and horse whips. Check it out below!

The Other Woman will divide audiences straight down the middle and even those of the fairer sex, who might cringe at the faux 'female empowerment' pitch, may be pleasantly surprised. First, let's get one thing straight: obsessing over a man who did you wrong - to the point where you start dressing like a ninja and stalking him for payback - is not big and it's not clever. But, you know what? It's kinda funny.
The friction between Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz generates bright comedy sparks in a story that is otherwise trite and predictable, but just as important is their gradual warming towards each other. Mann is the good little wife "cute Kate", while Diaz is the careerist singleton Carly who doesn't know she is dating »

Billy Bob Thornton has played some devilish characters, but never one as frightening and fascinating as Fargo’s Lorne Malvo. Malvo is a mysterious grim reaper of sorts who lives by a strict code of malevolence — one that has a way of rubbing off on the innocent souls around him. In the premiere of FX’s new series, which airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. Et, a chance encounter with pathetic pushover Lester Nygaard (Sherlock’s Martin Freeman) leads to some very bad things in the small town of Bemidji, Minn.

Cameron Diaz wanted to reach the masses, and now she will! The actress attended an appeals hearing in L.A. Apr. 3 with Emma Watts, 20th Century Fox's president of production.
