movie: The Other Woman
starring: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann
format: Shaw Video On Demand
plot: When a stay at home wife learns that her husband is cheating on her, she starts up a friendship with the mistress, as they begin to get revenge on the guy. Soon, they learn they are not the only one's he's cheated on. When a third woman enters the picture, they take matters to the bank.
This is one of those films that could have gone either way. There were enough laugh out loud moments in this buddy film for it to be good, but it really was predictable. I kept thinking of the movie First Wives Club the whole time I was watching this.
There is a scene where the wife loads the cheating husband's shampoo bottle with hair remover, which could have been a great comedy plot point, but the actor continued to have a full head of hair throughout the film almost undoing the point of the scene.
I would like to see Mann and Diaz do another buddy film together, as they seemed to have great chemistry, too bad the script just felt rehashed.
