Much of the comedy seems forced or improvised on the spot, and it doesn't really kick into gear until Diaz and Mann start working together.

... resorts to some labored plot twists to generate a forced comeuppance, forgetting that the audience already knew how it was going to end up anyway.

Mann is the one who practically makes the picture, winning most of the laughs with her expert timing, quirky delivery, and general go-for-broke abandon.

It grates more than it amuses

I don't demand a great deal from a glossy Hollywood comedy, but it would be nice to find a smarter, more original piece of work than this in the year 2014.

"This film, on the other hand, seems so desperate for laughs that you can practically see the flop sweat appear on its performers as they flail from one obnoxiously, uncomfortable scene to the next."

Director Nick Cassavettes lacks the deft touch to bring off the right blend of humor and humanity needed for a "revenge comedy" that ventures into the tricky trifecta of love, marriage and serial adultery.

... a strange misfire that is only saved from being a complete disaster by the efforts of the film's two leads.

An exceptionally, incredibly lazy piece of work...

What begins as a smoothly oiled romantic comedy quickly morphs into a clattery, grinding screwball contrivance.

Here is the optimistic wish that we have bottomed out for the year and the films to come will have to be better than this. It would take a special effort to be worse.
May 3, 2014
A cash-in comedy that has feeble jokes and unhealthy attitudes about humanity.
May 2, 2014
An embarrassing, lame-brained mess, full of obvious story holes and incoherent scene progression that appear to rely on audiences suddenly forgetting what they've just seen. It's quite extraordinary.

You might start to get the feeling that this whole thing wasn't so much scripted as fished out of the lint filter of a busted washing machine.

Even with three women atop the credits, The Other Woman still wouldn't pass the Bechdel test.
May 2, 2014
What begins as quite a sophisticated outing -- some interesting relationship politics and decent physical comedy turns by Mann -- goes downhill after an hour.
May 2, 2014
Everything in this movie is overcooked and pushed far beyond its power to amuse. In the end, it becomes a screeching bore.
May 1, 2014
The gags may lurch from hit to miss but the buff stars' equally toned acting skills and some inspired bit-casting make this one to watch - probably with the girls on home release.

With this cast, and this subject matter, the movie should have been funnier and more entertaining.
April 30, 2014
Nothing in this upside-down ode to empowerment is remotely believable - much less entertaining - and no one in the cast does anything that even resembles acting. It's a manic, misogynistic mess from start to finish. You can feel your brain cells dying.
