REVIEW: "THE OTHER WOMAN" by Jayne Waterford
It becomes more and more apparent that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau looks like Dean "Fili" O'Gorman and is a superb character actor.
And normally, Cameron Diaz is pretty funny but Leslie Mann used the platform of likeable and sharp established by Diaz to give us a loco, ditzy wife whose brain has been subverted by marriage. She was brilliant.
Nick Cassavetes' "THE OTHER WOMAN" (2014) comedy about three likeable women who all gang up on the same ass, played by actor Coster-Waldau. He goes there, most notably in his demise. And it is interesting. Various things happen through this film and the consequences of each is worked out in a scene, concise and discrete in and of itself. For example, The, "wife," (Mann) spikes her husband's breakfast with hormones and when he is telling her about the problems he is having (and we know why), it's all an emotional tizz. Scene.
Don Johnson is also awesome as Cameron's dad. And credible as Amber's new husband.
It's a world I wouldn't mind belonging to. We enjoyed it very much. 6/10
