April 25, 2014
As the mad fairy, scorned woman Kate, Leslie Mann, the wife of R-rated comedy king Judd Apatow, is sublime and sublimely funny. Maybe she needed a break from the hubby to bloom.
April 25, 2014
Worth seeing to be reminded of how funny Leslie Mann can be...

Is "The Other Woman" the funniest movie of the year? I hope not, because it is kind of silly/stupid in parts. But I loved it nonetheless.
April 25, 2014
This is more "feminish" than feminist, but arguably a tottering stiletto-heeled step forward.
April 24, 2014
Pertly humored and touching in spots without becoming too soapy, the film's entertainment value, plain and simple, goes a long way in smoothing over its problem areas.
April 24, 2014
"The Other Woman" plays like "The First Wives Club" crossed with an exceptionally well-groomed female version of "The Hangover" - which is to say, there's not much to it, but it's featherweight fun while it lasts.
April 24, 2014
Melissa Stack's script is loose and improvisatory, and genuinely clever in a few places, allowing Diaz and Mann ample room to bumble around amusingly.
April 24, 2014
Line to line, it's fresher than any number of guy-centric "Hangover"-spawned affairs, despite director Cassavetes' lack of flair for slapstick.
April 24, 2014
Stack extracts plenty of humour from the car-crash coming together of the two women with some good lines and quite raw emotion, especially from Mann's woman-on-the-verge-of-a-nervous breakdown.
April 24, 2014
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.
April 24, 2014
"The Other Woman" ends up like gnocchi: It's oddly shaped but there's good stuff in there.
April 24, 2014
Goofy, ridiculous, with more gross-out humor than is strictly necessary but still funny. It falls into the category of Girlfriend Films - as in, go with your girlfriends and leave your date/partner/spouse at home with the PlayStation or the NBA playoffs.
April 23, 2014
Connecting slightly more often than not, this film works best as a showcase for the talents of Leslie Mann, who can wring rueful laughter of identification out of humiliation and angst unlike few actresses working today.
April 23, 2014
Diaz and Mann make a great new comic duo, with Mann landing laugh after laugh after laugh.
April 23, 2014
Beneath the wobbly pratfalls and the scatological setpieces, there's no denying the film's mean-spirited kick, or its more-than-passing interest in what makes its women tick.
April 22, 2014
There are enough laugh-out-loud moments and an infectious sense of naughty fun to keep you watching to the bitter, bitter end.
April 20, 2014
Whenever the slapstick and the shouting begins to grate, the script reels you back in with a sharply written line.
April 16, 2014
Subsequent plot twists aren't as zany as might be hoped, but for quite a while the film is able to coast on the camaraderie between its stars.
April 16, 2014
The dialogue is often clever and funny. The physical comedy is well handled by director Nick Cassevetes and he elicits spot-on performances from his cast.
April 12, 2014
The cast are so darned good they turn dross into watchable escapism, as long as you're not too demanding
