Carly and Mark are in love – or so Carly thought. It turns out that Mark is actually married to Kate, AND has a third lover in the wings. When his infidelities are discovered, the three women team up to teach Mark a lesson, becoming firm friends in the process.

This is not a new theme for rom coms, and this 2014 version has been done very poorly. Diaz and Mann, both seasoned rom comers, should have demanded a more mature script. Instead, they have been plunged into a ridiculous and juvenile film where they seem quite out of place.

One film reviewer said that they couldn’t wait for the sequel. Sequel – what more is there to say? This is NOT the greatest chick flick of 2014. It is more like a parody of something we’ve all seen before.

I am very disappointed in this movie. The Other Woman is a simple and silly film which reminds me of 1980s Disney films, or kids’ TV shows where the baddy is made to look foolish in the end. In this movie, they all look foolish in the end!
