Check out #peggyatthemovies review of “THE OTHER WOMAN”


So yeah my movie streak of 4 good movies in a row has officially ended.. Yes, I knew it would happen sooner or later..but this one hurt! If you thought this movie was going to be bad..well times that by like 10.. ha!  It’s just plain bad..and cheesy..super cheesy.. the plot is EXACTLY what you think it’s going to be but yet in real life there is NO CHANCE IN HELL that a wife would become best friends with her husband’s mistresses..and plot silly revenge that lasted 30 min. too long!!!

Cameron Diaz plays ‘Carly Mistress #1’ and really needs to step it up some on her movie choices and between this and ‘The Counselor’ from earlier this year, make for a long 12mos of epic disasters.  Leslie Mann plays ‘Kate King’ the wife who is cheated on and yes, when doesn’t she play this type of character, I mean where is the range. Kate Upton ‘Amber/Mistress #2) not an actress, clearly. Nicki Minaj, ‘Lydia’  in that ‘i’m trying to be the funny supporting actress’ role..ZZZZzzzzzzz  

The only somewhat redeeming quality of this whole movie is eye candy for the girls. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau from ‘Game of Thrones’ fame (yes, I love watching him on that show and love the show.period) does a fair job at playing the cheating husband, ‘Mark’, but yeah..this isn’t #GOT and you know it immediately.. Taylor Kinney, is a complete and total dreamy drink of water, ‘Phil’ is ‘Kate’s brother’ guessed it, falls in love with ‘Carly’ and live happily ever after..ZZZZzzzzzz  Lastly, there is Don Johnson as ‘Frank’ and yeah..he still looks great..he really does.  Without this and the 1 or 2 funny actual funny lines in the movie is what made it barely watchable..though the person next to me did leave about 1/2 way through, when it’s a free screening, I try and stick it out. And trust me it was hard!!! 

Grade: D
