Review: 'The Other Woman'

One and a half stars

I can't speak for the women in my life, but I suspect they would be offended by the ones depicted in "The Other Woman." On the one hand, they get the equal opportunity, like the men in Judd Apatow movies, to behave like overgrown children, but the power they give their cheatin' man to occupy all their waking hours makes this comedy more sad than funny. If this is girl power, we're experiencing rolling blackouts.

I LOVE this movie. It's cheesy and daft in many ways, but-how many of us would be so thrilled to be able to do what these ladies did? You don't have to look far, probably the person sitting next to you, right now-cheatttting! And if they aren't now, they have, or will, goes with out saying. To me this movie isn't just blathering females. It's camaraderie, forgiveness, compassion, and friendship-in light of one of the most painful life events. ROCK ON girls- the rest beware, some good ideas are up for the snatching!
