Review: The Other Woman

Carly (Cameron Diaz) is a lawyer who was skeptical about love. She was bouncing off from one relationship to another. When Carly finally cleared the bench for Mark (Game of Throne's Nikolaj Coster-Waldau), she discovers that Mark is a fraud - and worse - married. She accidentally met Mark's wife, Kate ( Leslie Mann) and found herself comforting her. Their friendship solidifies when they realize that Mark is cheating on both of them with yet another "other woman", Amber (Kate Upton). These three women toughen up their friendship and join forces plotting an outrageous plan for revenge.

The Other Woman has a breath of fresh air on the story of the philandering husband and scorned wife setting. Who would have known that the wife and two mistresses would become best friends? The movie tackles about friendships that would form in the most unexpected situations. In the movie, An unexpected situation turned out to be a good one for the girls. They found a good solid friendship despite the situation they are in.

I guess its just finding the bright side of things. Yes, Kate has been hurt, but it didn't stop her from seeking help and assistance from Carly and Amber. What made Kate drawn to Carly is because she felt that Carly loved his husband and genuinely felt they were both played blindly behind their backs.

I wish that more of our movies would have the same hindsight about the issue of the cheating husband and adultery. A lo of dramas have been accentuating much about the heartache and agony of the situation and issue,  Why not take a bright side and give a better outlook?

For all the wives and women that had been hurt, Catch the movie "The Other Woman" in your nearest cinema and have a different perspective in this "cheating husband/lover" situation.

"The Other Woman" is still showing in major cinemas.
