It’s absolutely no secret that I love a good rom com. Sometimes the cheesier, the better. (C’mon, Chrissy, you remember when I kind of forced you to watch When In Rome on DVD that Friday night forever ago? :D) But this one was a game changer.
No matter how many negative reviews are out there, I absolutely loved The Other Woman. It was smart, funny and, for once, it was not about “getting the guy” and a fairytale ending. It was about girlfriends. It was not afraid to show women acting like hilarious idiots like we do when we all get together.
It showed women being funny, vulnerable, strong, emotional, smart, insecure, scared, confident and supportive of each other – because we are all made up of all of these things and much more, every single day. And a Hollywood movie finally showed woman blaming the man for cheating and not tearing the other woman down for it. Thank you.
Leslie Mann’s physical comedy was insane and awesome. Cameron Diaz’s sharp one-liners were fantastic. This movie was a fun, over the top, girlfriend comedy. It’s the best funny movie I’ve seen in a while. And, yes, I’m totally biased when it comes to women leading a comedy. I think chic flicks are the best and I know there is a huge appetite out there for more of this type of movie.
To all the jerky reviewers out there, this is a fun movie, not a documentary. So let’s take it for what it is, kick back, and enjoy the ride.
Have you seen it and what do you think?
