The standard message that men are 'dogs' and women are 'cats', is yet again reinforced in this movie. Recommended for its target audience.

THE OTHER WOMAN is directed by Nick Cassavetes and starring Cameron Diaz (Carly) as a smart and beautiful New York lawyer, who suddenly learns that her monogamous and unmarried boyfriend of eight weeks, Mark (Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau) is in fact happily married. With Mark's wife Kate (Leslie Mann) together they get their revenge on the two-timing bastard, and they quickly discover yet another affair with the much younger Amber (Kate Upton), so the cheater is actually a three-timing bastard.

THE OTHER WOMAN has a brand new screenplay and is also a female buddy movie, but this oft-used theme of women getting even does immediately remind one of Olivia Goldsmith's book and movie called FIRST WIVES CLUB (1996). With its unrealistic and unlikely storyline, THE OTHER WOMAN is a raunchier, edgier take on the subject.

Of course the audience is anticipating how the revenge will play out with the excessive consumption of alcohol including shots. With the clever use of music to quickly move the story forward the movie's 109 minutes went by at high speed, and there are many gross shocks and surprises ahead, as the three women royally set up their man.

Sports Illustrated model - Kate Upton at 21 years of age- appears to have been cast in her role as the silly bimbo, simply as a result of her upper body size. What the casting agent missed was spotted by every woman in the audience, her cellulite.

Leslie Mann is perpetually typecast in this kind of role although this reviewer was very impressed by the range of her emotionally driven performance. Nicki Minaj (Carly's secretary) delivers her witty modern day metaphors with great aplomb.

The audience were mainly women, and from their constant laughter, they left their sense of reality at home! They got real pleasure from the rough treatment deal out to the cheating husband, including the physical injuries. The standard message that men are 'dogs' and women are 'cats', is yet again reinforced in this movie. Recommended for its target audience.
