After discovering her boyfriend is married, a woman (Cameron Diaz) tries to get her ruined life back on track. But when she accidentally meets the wife he's been cheating on (Leslie Mann), she realizes they have much in common, and her sworn enemy becomes her greatest friend.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What begins as a smoothly oiled romantic comedy quickly morphs into a clattery, grinding screwball contrivance."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"You can't shake the feeling that in a just world, all these women - even Kate Upton - would have better material than this."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Much of the comedy seems forced or improvised on the spot, and it doesn't really kick into gear until Diaz and Mann start working together."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"It grates more than it amuses"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
"Director Nick Cassavettes lacks the deft touch to bring off the right blend of humor and humanity needed for a "revenge comedy" that ventures into the tricky trifecta of love, marriage and serial adultery."
‑ Neil Pond, American Profile
"The vapid story -- and its intended humor -- meanders and loses its way in predictable sit-com style."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
‑ Richard Roeper, Richard
"... resorts to some labored plot twists to generate a forced comeuppance, forgetting that the audience already knew how it was going to end up anyway."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"I don't demand a great deal from a glossy Hollywood comedy, but it would be nice to find a smarter, more original piece of work than this in the year 2014."
‑ Leonard Maltin, Leonard Maltin's Picks
"... a strange misfire that is only saved from being a complete disaster by the efforts of the film's two leads."
‑ Drew McWeeny, HitFix
"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."
‑ Noah Berlatsky,
"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."
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"Mann is the one who practically makes the picture, winning most of the laughs with her expert timing, quirky delivery, and general go-for-broke abandon."
‑ Michael Dequina,
""This film, on the other hand, seems so desperate for laughs that you can practically see the flop sweat appear on its performers as they flail from one obnoxiously, uncomfortable scene to the next.""
‑ Jeff Vice, Cinephiled
"An exceptionally, incredibly lazy piece of work..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
