New The Other Woman Movie Delivered Great Comedy,Drama & More

26 April 2014 9:49 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

20th Century Fox released their new comedy flick, "The Other Woman," into theaters this weekend. I just checked it out, and thought it was pretty entertaining, serving up a lot of silly comedy, drama, and more. It stars: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kate Upton, Taylor Kinney, and Nicki Minaj. In the new flick, Cameron Diaz's character, Carly Whitten is dating character, Mark King,and everything seems great. However, we're shown that everything isn't so great as Mark is spotted in bed with another woman that just so happens to be his wife! Eventually Carly discovers Mark is married when she tried to surprise him at his home and got his wife, Kate King (Leslie Mann), instead. From there, Kate starts getting all up in Carly's grill to get answers about what Mark has been doing behind her back. They eventually bond over the fact that they were both lied to. »

Review: Leslie Mann struggles valiantly but can't save the rotten 'The Other Woman'

25 April 2014 2:50 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

While I can't say "The Other Woman" is a good movie, I can say that it features at least one thing that is genuinely worth seeing. The film that I kept thinking of as I watched this one was the Colin Higgins mega-hit "9 To 5," with Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Dolly Parton teaming up to kick the living crap out of their chauvinist boss Dabney Coleman. While I'm not sure I'd feel like that film held up if I saw it now, it tapped a very potent sense of simmering outrage. It was a well-timed shot across the bow in the cultural conversation on changing roles for women in the workplace. "The Other Woman," on the other hand, is a largely ridiculous look at crappy rich white people who seem to have nothing to worry about besides what they do with their naughty bits. This is the feature debut of screenwriter Melissa Stack, »

Review: "The Other Woman" Brings The Laughs!

25 April 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Leslie Mann, Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton are three ladies you shouldn't mess with! "The Other Woman" is a comedic look at what happens when three women, who are played by the same man, seek revenge in the best kind of way. Leslie steals the screen as Kate King, the poor wife of Mark King, who discovered her husband is having numerous extramarital affairs. Leslie's character is both naive yet endearing as she tries to teach her cheating husband a lesson.  By far, Kate is the funniest character in the movie. From her 1950s housewife style to her drunken stupors and her relentless enthusiasm for payback, she's always bringing the laughs when on the screen. Cameron's character (Carly Whitten) -- while more in-tune with reality -- is smart, calculated and basically just a bad bitch. Carly is a great contrast to Kate, and the ladies make one amazing duo in the flick. »

‘The Other Woman’ Review

25 April 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

In The Other Woman, we meet attorney Carly Whitten (Cameron Diaz), a powerhouse career gal who can never invest in relationships – that is until she meets her perfect match in Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). However, when Carly tries to surprise Mark with a kinky late-night visit, she’s the one who instead gets a surprise: Mark has a wife named Kate (Leslie Mann).

At first the meeting is incredibly awkward and horrifying, but plucky Kate can’t help but admire the other woman in her husband’s life, and the two quickly become “the weirdest friends, ever.” Once united, the ladies set their sights on payback against Mark; but as the dig deeper they find more lies and more mistresses – like the voluptuous ...

The Other Woman Review

24 April 2014 5:16 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even those who are not well-versed with the American cinema of the 1970s have probably heard of writer/director John Cassavetes. He is considered the godfather of independent film in America, a figure who influenced low-budget filmmaking more than any other person not named Robert Redford. His films, which include Seconds and A Woman Under the Influence, are raw, revealing, semi-improvised explorations of marital life, sex, music, romance, suburban ennui, infidelity, aging and death.

However, the apple falls very far from the tree. John’s son, director Nick Cassavetes, is known for making sap, his filmography full of emotionally-charged titles like The Notebook, John Q and My Sister’s Keeper. However, with his latest film, the female revenge comedy The Other Woman, Nick transplants some of the plot elements from his father’s films – notably, Faces, about a man’s infidelity with a much younger woman – into a dumb, pathetic mess of slapstick miscues. »

Talking with the Cast of 'The Other Woman'

23 April 2014 7:14 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

After discovering her boyfriend is married (Cameron Diaz) tries to get her ruined life back on track. But when she accidently meets the wife he's been cheating on (Leslie Mann) she realizes they have much in common and her sworn enemy becomes her greatest friend. When yet another affair is discovered (Kate Upton), all three women team up to plot mutual revenge on their cheating, lying, three timing husband Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

What drew you guys to this script?

Cameron Diaz: There was nothing like this out there. Usually when it's a story about three women all being involved with the same man it usually ends with eyeballs being scratched out. We decided that wasn't the story we wanted to tell and we didn't want it to be a story about revenge but to have this event be a catalyst to bring them together. It's not only a »

Film Review: ‘The Other Woman’

23 April 2014 2:35 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

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.

'The Other Woman' Meets the Other Women in Our Exclusive Preview (Video)

9 April 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer, right? Especially when they're the ladies your man is cheating on you with!

In "The Other Woman," Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, aka the Kingslayer on "Game of Thrones") is cheating on his wife Kate (Leslie Mann) with Carly (Cameron Diaz). Obviously, it's a pretty rude awakening for them both, but imagine their horror when they discover there's a third woman -- and she's an ultra babe?

In this exclusive clip from "The Other Woman," Carly and Kate discuss their discovery of Amber, played by Kate Upton. "I think it's good that she's super hot, because I feel like it brings up our group average," says Kate.

There aren't any pillow fights -- that we know of -- but there's some bumping and grinding, romping, and bonding over the ingestion of illicit substances. "If we find any more mistresses, I'm going to have to send [Kate] to rehab, »
