  • A movie needs to announce if it's playing games. Pulling the rug out from under a viewer is fine for whodunnits and psychological thrillers and the usual suspects. But a supposedly grown-up drama like The Other Man ought to have scruples about where it plans to take you. show more

  • Seldom has such great star power been marshaled in the service of a sillier movie than The Other Man. show more

  • The biggest mystery in this wannabe thriller is why such topnotch actors would sign on for such a dreary movie that amounts to a mediocre soap opera. show more

    Moviefone needs to display a warning that rating something zero does not register the rating in the averages. This movie is not worth the one star I am forced to place to adjust the average user rating. Aside from Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever and Darkness, this movie takes the crown for pain I have had to endure without the aid of meds.
