The Silver Bullet ~ The Other Woman

Synopsis: After realizing she is not her boyfriend’s primary lover, a woman teams up with his wife and plots mutual revenge.

Release Date: April 25, 2014

Thoughts: I blame only myself…just a few days ago I was talking with a friend and commenting how thankful I was that overrated rapper Nicki Minaj had yet to make the leap from video star to movie star.  Then I catch Minaj in the trailer for The Other Woman and realize that I probably cosmically jinxed myself.  It looks as though Minaj plays a supporting role in the revenge comedy, leaving the heavy lifting to Cameron Diaz (The Counselor, What to Expect When You’re Expecting) and Leslie Mann (This is 40).  Coming off like a mash-up of Outrageous Fortune and The First Wives Club, The Other Woman doesn’t appear to be more than a standard “girls rule, boys drool” kinda affair and though I find Diaz and Mann and costar Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Headhunters, Mama) to be intermittently enjoyable this isn’t one I’d put high on my list.
