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.

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

Everything in this movie is overcooked and pushed far beyond its power to amuse. In the end, it becomes a screeching bore.

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.

The vapid story -- and its intended humor -- meanders and loses its way in predictable sit-com style.

In its portrayal of female friendship, the film relies on dated clichs ... The sad thing is, I doubt that the trio would have become friends in the first place.
April 27, 2014
The idea has potential but the execution is shrill and flabby and Cassavetes can't land a laugh.
April 27, 2014
For all its faults, there is a kind of genius in the way that it takes the rom-com raison d'etre - the desire to see two lovable people fall in love with each other - and diverts it for its own purposes.

It would nice to be able to declare that this women-on-top revenge comedy presents a sparky gender-role inversion, but instead it just trots out the usual cliches in tired and increasingly tiresome fashion.

You can't shake the feeling that in a just world, all these women - even Kate Upton - would have better material than this.

Brutal.

The plotting is predictable, the cameo from Nicki Minaj is pointless and some of the humour is sadistic in the extreme, but the film yields at least a few chuckles along the way.

No one knows which takes are funny and which aren't. More than once, all three women, especially poor Upton, are caught looking like they don't know what they're doing.
April 25, 2014
Granted it would be nice to have a ladies' night out at the multiplex, but no one need be this desperate.
April 25, 2014
Practically every gag in this movie, and there are scores of them, is milked dry. When the gags aren't very good to begin to with, this is a prescription for disaster.
April 25, 2014
Echoes with so many bum notes that you leave the cinema desperate for an ice pack and a dark room.
April 25, 2014
This is more "feminish" than feminist, but arguably a tottering stiletto-heeled step forward.
April 25, 2014
While "The Other Woman" raises some thoughtful questions about independence, identity and the importance of sisterhood, ultimately it would rather poop on them and then throw them through a window in hopes of the getting the big laugh.

Thank goodness for Leslie Mann.

Soggy, haphazard, poorly paced slapstick mansplained by director Nick Cassavetes from a script by Melissa Stack.
