The Other Woman

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

For those of you who were alive and well during the early 2000's you might have seen the wonderfully cute, John Tucker must Die. And if you were Indian then you must have seen Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl.
And now new for older Western audiences comes, The Other Woman.
If you are one of those people who didn't watch either of those films, then here is the 411.
Cameron Diaz, lets call her Blonde no.1is a usual woman player who is a high powered career woman, that we never see or barely talk about unless we are talking about her receptionist Nicki Minaj. She meets Man-Whore, formerly an incestous one-handed man if you prefer Game of Thrones. Blonde no.1 falls in love with Man-Whore and decides to surprise him in his house. Where she promptly meets Leslie Mann, Blonde no.2, who is also the wife of Man-Whore!
She is obviously distressed, as is Blonde no.1. They then decide to band together and track down Man-Whore where they saw him flirting with yet another woman Kate Upton, Blonde no.3.
Blonde's 1 and 2 convince 3 to join them in their crusade to destroy the life of Man-Whore.
With a lot of comedy and twists, The Other Woman is a funny movie. Other than the fact that there is zero creativity and imagination in the whole film.
Leslie Mann is still a cute little woman, Cameron Diaz looks old, and that makes me sad and Kate Upton is made out to be the dim-wit thanks to the assets she got from her mama.
The surprising thing was when Nicki Minaj acted. Yep, you read that right, Nicki Minaj actually worked for the money this time.
It's strange how that turned out.
But other than that, it's a passable excuse for a movie, and you can definitely watch it once. Maybe skip forward some of the more boring parts.

The Good: Taylor Kinney, Lady Gaga's boyfriend is in this movie. And his is well on his way towards becoming a silver fox.
The Bad: Been there, seen that.
