Story: Carly(Cameron Diaz) discovers her new boyfriend Mark(Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is a fraud when she meets his wife Kate(Leslie Mann).
Review: The title may sound similar to a local soap opera but it is a comedy starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton. When I first saw the trailer of the movie, I knew it would be a fun movie to watch. In most of the comedies I watched, never had this so much laughs even if it comes from Hollywood.

The comedy here is more on the punch lines and slapstick. Cheating partners may be a serious concern but this movie the situation entertaining and something to laugh about. Thanks to the tandem of comedians Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann. What I never expect that Kate Upton is making a comedy in her own way. This proves there is more to this Sports Illustrated favorite cover girl than just being a bombshell.
Making her debut in movies is recording artist Nicki Minaj. She although a supporting cast, she delivers her own comedy very well. I look forward to more comedy projects in the future. It is also good for Nikolaj-Coster-Waldau to do other projects besides his ongoing project for HBO original series Game Of Thrones. He already done horror with Guillermo del Toro's Mama and is doing well with his comedy debut even though he is the antagonist of the story. Miami Vice fans will be thrill to see Don Johnson as the father of Carly. Even though he older, he still got charms for a guy his age. Also making a transition from TV to movie is Chicago Fire's Taylor Kinney.
This is a nice movie that promotes women empowerment that I never saw in a comedy. It is nice movie to watch whether you are on a date or watching as a group. The Other Woman is released by Twentieth Century Fox and distributed by Warner Bros. For more movie reviews, like L.E.N.S. blogs on Facebook.
