This is what most people do, however, that is not the case in “The Other Woman.”
“The Other Woman” rounded up $24.7 million on its opening weekend taking first place and replacing “Captain America.”
“The Other Woman” is not your cliché rich husband cheats on his sweet innocent stay at home wife.
This witty comedy changes our view on what you expect to see when wife meets mistress or in this case mistresses. Carly (Cameron Diaz) believes she has found the one in Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).
Little does she know that “Mr. Right” is married.
Trying to keep his wife out of the loop Mark is forced to cancel plans he’s made to meet Carly’s father. Being a successful lawyer, Carly gets a strange vibe from Mark so she suggests to go home with him.
He refuses and tells her it’s only a pipe that’s burst in his basement and he’ll be back soon.
This causes an argument between them and Carly storms out of the car during a red light, slamming the door behind her.
Later Carly’s father (Don Johnson), who dates younger women, tells her she has overreacted and should amend this by visiting him at his home and wear something hot and provocative.
Carly listens to her father’s advice and heads to Marks home outside of New York.
Dressed as a plumber, Carly knocks on Mark’s front door which is quickly answered by Kate (Leslie Mann), Mark’s wife.
Wife and mistress have now met face to face and later in the movie form an alliance to get revenge on the cheating, conniving and stealing Mark.
Adding laxatives and hormones to his drinks are only a few hilarious things you can expect from this comedy.
On a scale from one to ten, ten being the highest, I give the acting for “The Other Woman” an eight. Diaz and Mann did an amazing job when it came to making everyone laugh in the theater.
Kate Upton has appeared in “The Three Stooges” and “Tower Heist.” Her role in “The Other Woman” as Amber was well acted.
“I enjoyed watching this movie. I thought it had a good plot line. It was pretty funny over all and it had a really good ending that didn’t leave you wondering what happened to the girls. I liked how everyone acted except Nicki Minaj her accent was too forced and it bugged me through out the whole movie,” said Stephanie Guzman.
Nick Cassavetes, director of this film, also directed “The Notebook” and “My Sisters Keeper.” Cassavetes did a notable job with “The Other woman.”
I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good laugh and it teaches how to really deal with a cheating husband: by putting him in his place.
