I was ready for something light and uncomplicated at the movies this weekend, so Cameron Diaz’s new film “The Other Woman” seemed like a good fit.
A revenge fantasy, three women — the wife, the girlfriend who didn’t know he was married, and the gullible mistress — join forces to take their pound of flesh from the man who wronged them all.
Is it plausible? No. But the cast sells it, and I laughed more than I thought I would.
However, if you want to see a funnier Cameron Diaz movie that was also released this weekend OnDemand, check out Gambit.
This comedy has pedigree: The Coen Brothers as screenwriters. A cast that includes Diaz (playing an over-the-top Texas rodeo gal), Colin Firth, Alan Rickman and Stanley Tucci. And an art heist at its center with enough misdirections and surprises to keep you guessing until the final frame.
Plus, Alan Rickman is creatively nude.
(Perhaps I should have led with that tidbit.)
