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

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.

You can't shake the feeling that in a just world, all these women - even Kate Upton - would have better material than this.
April 25, 2014
Brutal.

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.

Granted it would be nice to have a ladies' night out at the multiplex, but no one need be this desperate.

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.

This is more "feminish" than feminist, but arguably a tottering stiletto-heeled step forward.

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.

Has it come to this for director Nick Cassavetes?
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
So dumb, lazy, clumsily assembled and unoriginal, it could crush any actor forced to execute its leaden slapstick gags and mouth its crude, humorless dialogue.
April 24, 2014
My advice to guys? Step away from the vehicle, because "The Other Woman" is out of control and intent on running down a certain kind of male.
April 24, 2014
The only thing missing from this steaming casserole, in fact, is the one crucial ingredient: A sense of humor.
April 24, 2014
Cassavetes seemingly tries to sap any energy that Mann and Diaz give the film. Any time music kicks in, terrible filmmaking results, usually in montage form.

A conceptually odious, stupid-to-the-bone enterprise ...
April 24, 2014
A coarse, rickety comedy.
