Successful lawyer Carly (Cameron Diaz) thinks she has finally found the perfect guy. He is businessman Mark (Nicolai Coaster-Waldau), both rich and handsome. Yet, when Mark breaks a date with C, due to a home repair emergency, she decides to offer "surprise help" by showing up at his doorstep. Bad move, Carly! The person opening the door is none other than Mark's wife, Kate (Leslie Mann), who is baffled as well. Naturally, Carly, stumbling away, is furious that she has fallen for a married man and played for a fool by Mark. Yet, the next day, Kate shows up at Carly's office to investigate the sitch further. Carly's personal assistant (Nicki Minaj) wants more details, too. Thus, even though the two ladies start off as enemies, they soon become friends, realizing that Mark is the true target for their anger. However, more surprises await. By chance, the gals learn that there is a third woman being tricked by Mark. She is beautiful, young Amber (Kate Upton), who relates that she thought she was dating a I'm-getting-a-divorce man. Now, its three against one, although Kate's attractive brother may provide a fourth. As such, Mark is in for the table-turning of a lifetime! This film is a laugh Nirvana, side-splitting funny. All of the actors do wonderfully comic turns, but especially Mann. The Manhattan, Connecticut, and Bahamas settings are gorgeous while the enviable costumes are bound to turn anyone a bright shade of green. As noted, the script is packed with comedy, sometimes low-brow, but mostly clever while the direction by Nick Cassavetes is admirable. Go jam the box office movie lovers!
