REVIEW: "Other Woman" Filled with Metaphorical Break Up "Humor"

What happens when three women who got "played" by the same dude form a huddle and decide to make his life miserable? That's the premise. It's the cheated on ultra naive wife, Kate (Leslie Mann) , who binds this share the misery of a broken heart "comedy" past the boundary of a simple "chic" flick.

Mann's "Kate" is such an erratic , isolated and never shut her mouth character that pairing her with attorney Carly (Cameron Diaz) as an unwilling "ear" leads to a wealth of uncomfortable dilemmas including Mann wailing "you slept with my husband" lying down beside the law office window.

Turning the tables on serial cheater Mark becomes a small community project. After "10" (Kate Upton) joins the trio, the dude has no redeeming factor, right? So, with "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" blaring in the background, the unintentional "pals" its an undercover (pardon the pun) empowerment challenge to zap the "victim" stance out of their hair.

Gal power has combined but "Other Woman" has the "spark" and celebratory wit of the classic "Nine to Five" or "Harper Valley P.T.A.," the all out a little pay back revenge is  therapeutic foundation (remember those parading pink elephants?).
