Consensus: The Other Woman definitely boasts a talented pedigree, but all that skill is never fully brought to bear on a story that settles for cheap laughs instead of reaching its empowering potential.

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

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

Movie Talk

This could have been a crowd-pleasing tale of female solidarity and revenge along the lines of Nine to Five. Instead, thanks to tissue-thin characters, lame slapstick and excrementally bad gross-out comedy, it proves to be a glossy mess.

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

Brutal.

It is a grotesque, shrill, never-ending effort that always finds a way to sink a little lower just when you're positive there's no way it can.

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.

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.

It's lightweight, formulaic fun that would normally hover in the 6 out of 10 range, but Mann's antics push it into 7 territory.

Do you want to see a cheating, lying, smug s.o.b. get his just desserts? Get what's coming to him? Want him to hurt bad enough to taste it? Well apparently… More

Definitely weaker than I expected, but worth at least one watch. Was it just me, or should whoever did the wardrobe have been sacked? Cameron Diaz in particular… More

Even though it's a chick comedy, I thought it looked pretty funny from the previews. Emily and I almost went to the movies to see it if I remember right.… More

It delivers what you would expect, an amusing Rom-com that delivers a few laughs. Enjoy it for what it is, nothing more!

Annoying, uninspired, and just plain dumb, "The Other Woman" follows three women as they realize that same man is dating all of them and they must get… More
