    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Audiences looking for a nonstop laugh riot may be disappointed, but the big laughs are there, and they benefit from the movie's underlying sincerity. show more

    Thank goodness for Leslie Mann. If not for the nutball charm of this tight-wound whirlwind, the dispiriting Hollywood sex comedy The Other Woman would be close to unbearable. show more

    So instead of the rom-com, we now have the “non-com.” The cardboard characters and predictable rhythms remain. But this time, we get all the comic cliches with none of the romance. show more

    Alonso Duralde TheWrap

    A smiling Cameron Diaz and a weeping Leslie Mann bring a lot to any movie, but they aren't enough to overcome the mix-and-match mania of these proceedings. Girls just wanna have fun, but they'd also like a coherent night at the movies. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    A female solidarity adultery comedy that's three parts embarrassing farce to one part genuinely comic discharge. show more

    The Other Woman eschews plenty of standard genre expectations to make an unexpectedly friendship-friendly film. show more

    Definitely funny. Goofy, ridiculous, with more gross-out humor than is strictly necessary but still funny. show more

    Michael Phillips Chicago Tribune

    Written by newcomer Melissa K. Stack, The Other Woman offers roughly equal parts wit and witlessness, casual smarts and jokes, lingering and detailed, regarding explosive bowel movements. Based on that ratio, I'd say the screenwriter's future in Hollywood looks pretty good. show more

    Liam Lacey The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    Apparently intended as a blend of "Bridesmaids" and "The First Wives Club," it’s often oddly engrossing, almost despite itself, largely thanks to the performances and the free rein the director gives his stars. show more

    Roger Moore McClatchy-Tribune News Service

    Melissa K. Stack’s script has snap and crackle to go with the pop, making this female wish-fulfillment fantasy an “Eat, Pray, Revenge” that delivers the punches that two “Sex and the City” movies never could. show more

    What a super movie. Very well acted and scripted. I just loved it!!! It's definitely a movie that I would want to see again. All the ladies should treat themselves and see this movie. You won't be disappointed.

    This movie was good most of the way through, but ended UNBELIEVABLY disappointing. Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann shine as the wife and first mistress, while Kate Upton is given little to do. The gorgeous creep of a husband, Nicolaj, gives a mostly one-note performance lacking depth. We never really see him pulling on and off the masks of a cheater, or struggling with adulterous guilt. It's a strange performance. Nikki Minaj is funny, if morally vacuous, as Cameron's secretary. Leslie Mann is almost unbearable at times as a woman who stop maturing emotionally at 24, the age she met her husband. She seems completely unable to handle the simplest tasks on her own. It's cringe-worthy. Furthermore ((SPOILER ALERT!!)) at the end, 21 year-old Kate Upton ends up with Don Johnson (Cameron Diaz's FATHER, about 65 now), at the end, who looks like Crypt-keeper! Really? Reallllllllly. Really? Sexism much? What a ridiculous ending. Hate to break it to you, male audience, but 21 year old girls only date 65 year olds unless they have million$ and a pacemaker/ GROSS! People in the audience were actually groaning and shouting out "Ewwwww!" This is 2014, I wish they'd stop making movies like this. Cameron's character was relatively strong, but the rest of them were in a moral vacuum. Bummer.

    Recently saw this movie and had high expectations. Sadly, it simply does not meet our hopes. The four in our group all agree it could have been great given the topic. Kate Upton should continue in magazines as truly the only function she did was the beach scene. As far as acting, once again stay in magazines. There was so much potential and was seldom met throughout. There were a few funny moments but not worth the time invested. Sorry, but a 3 out of a 10.

    Disappointing. Good idea for a movie, but the execution was very flawed, beginning with the script. And sometimes the slapstick gets downright cruel and unbelievable.
