Carly, an attorney, has just started a relationship with Mark, a man she had sex with eight weeks earlier She is upset when Mark tells her he has to go out of town but decides to go over to his house to seduce him She is horrified to meet Mark's wife, Kate, whom she'd originally assumed to be Mark's housekeeper While initially hostile, the two women befriend one another Kate then discovers that he is seeing yet another woman, whom she at first believes to be Carly, but they both discover that Mark is seeing a third woman: Amber

Carly and Kate travel to the beach, where Kate has a run-in with Amber, and the two women inform her that Mark has been cheating on all of them All three women then decide to take revenge on him together Kate spikes his smoothies with an estrogen to swell his nipples, has their dog lick his toothbrush before soaking it in their toilet, and adds hair-removal cream into his shampoo; Carly spikes his water with a laxative to cause him to defecate heavy diarrhea; Amber has an ugly fake three-way sexual partner against him

In the course of carrying out the women's vicious pranks, they also discover that Mark has been embezzling much money from various companies at his workplace Meanwhile, Carly begins to connect romantically with Kate's brother Phil In addition, Amber confides to Carly that she is seeing someone else as well Their camaraderie begins to fall apart when Kate finds herself falling in love with Mark again after an investor's dinner Carly exposes Mark's fraud, upsetting Kate

Later, when Mark goes to the Bahamas on a supposed business trip, Kate decides to follow him there and expose him She finds Carly and Amber at the airport, who explain that Mark has been using Kate as the owner of the companies he defrauded from, which would—were his fraud to be discovered—result in her going to prison Kate also finds out that Mark has been seeing yet another woman: someone he has met on this trip This, and the possibility of him facing prison, motivates her to take action with the help of Carly's legal expertise

When Mark returns from vacation, he visits Carly at her office He is then locked in that clear glass conference room by Carly's assistant and friend, Lydia, and is stunned to see all of the three women sitting in there together They proceed to confront him with his infidelities and embezzlement With Carly as her attorney, Kate presents divorce papers and a list of their assets She reveals how she, as a CEO, has returned back all of Mark's embezzled money to those companies, which saves himself from prison time but then leaves him bankrupt, much to his shock and hysterical outrage Mark's business partner, Nick, then arrives and acknowledges his wife's work back after firing him He excuses himself, fuming, from the three women, who all then applaud each other In his furious anger and rush to leave, he smashes into the glass office, cutting him and ripping his clothes He then afterwards finds his car being towed away before also receiving a punch in the face from Carly's father, Frank

In the film's epilogue, Kate takes over Mark's previous job with Nick and is a CEO with successful companies, making big profits under her honest leadership Carly and Phil fall in love, and the couple are expecting a child Amber is in a relationship with Frank

Receptionedit

Critical responseedit

On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 24% based on 149 reviews, with an average rating of 42/10 The site's critical consensus reads, "The Other Woman definitely boasts a talented pedigree, but all that skill is never fully brought to bear on a story that settles for cheap laughs instead of reaching its empowering potential"32 On Metacritic, the film has a score of 39 out of 100 based on reviews from 35 critics, indicating "generally unfavorable reviews"33 Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale34

Audiences looking for a nonstop laugh riot may be disappointed, but the big laughs are there, and they benefit from the movie's underlying sincerity Mick LaSalle — San Francisco Chronicle35

Justin Chang of Variety said, "Beneath the wobbly pratfalls and the scatological setpieces, there's no denying the film's mean-spirited kick, or its more-than-passing interest in what makes its women tick"36 The Hollywood Reporter's critic Todd McCarthy said: "It would have helped if director Nick Cassavetes had something resembling a sure hand at comedy"1 Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of The AV Club gave the film grade C-, saying "All of a sudden, a spotted Great Dane squats in the middle of a Manhattan apartment and out plop several gleaming, glistening CGI turds It's one of those cases where a Hollywood movie inadvertently summarizes itself in a single shot"37 Michael Phillips of Chicago Tribune gave the film two and a half stars out of four, saying "Line to line, it's fresher than any number of guy-centric "Hangover"-spawned affairs, despite director Cassavetes' lack of flair for slapstick"38 The Boston Globe's Ty Burr gave the film one out of four stars and said, "It's "The First Wives Club" rewritten for younger, less demanding audiences, or a "9 to 5" with absolutely nothing at stake"39 Stephanie Zacharek of The Village Voice said, "The Other Woman doesn't give these actresses much to do except look ridiculous, if not sneaky and conniving"40

The vapid story – and its intended humor – meanders and loses its way in predictable sit-com style Claudia Puig  — USA Today41

Michael Sragow of Orange County Register gave the film grade C, saying that the film is "a coarse, rickety comedy"42 Richard Corliss wrote for Time magazine that "All three women are less watchable and amusing than Nicki Minaj as Carly's legal assistant Lydia"43 Film critic Stephen Holden of The New York Times said that the film is "so dumb, lazy, clumsily assembled and unoriginal, it could crush any actor forced to execute its leaden slapstick gags and mouth its crude, humorless dialogue"44 James Berardinelli of ReelViews wondered, "Has it come to this for director Nick Cassavetes", comparing his career negatively to that of his father, John Cassavetes Berardinelli elaborated, "what a comedown to find him in charge of such an unfocused, unfunny, scatologically-obsessed 'comedy'"45 Christy Lemire of RogerEbertCom gave the film two out of four stars and said, "While "The Other Woman" raises some thoughtful questions about independence, identity and the importance of sisterhood, ultimately it would rather poop on them and then throw them through a window in hopes of the getting the big laugh"46 Wesley Morris of Grantland said, "No one knows which takes are funny and which aren't More than once, all three women, especially poor Upton, are caught looking like they don't know what they're doing"47

Bilge Ebiri of the magazine New York said, "You can't shake the feeling that in a just world, all these women – even Kate Upton – would have better material than this"48 Connie Ogle of The Miami Herald gave the film three out of four stars and called the film a "goofy, ridiculous, with more gross-out humor than is strictly necessary but still funny It falls into the category of Girlfriend Films – as in, go with your girlfriends and leave your date/partner/spouse at home with the PlayStation or the NBA playoffs"49 Colin Covert of Star Tribune gave the film three out of four stars, saying "It's an escapist women's empowerment comedy like many others, but elevated by the simple virtue of being, for most of its length, very, very funny"50 Ann Hornaday of The Washington Post gave the film one and a half stars out of four, saying "A movie as generic and forgettable as the sofa-size art on its characters' walls"51 Linda Holmes wrote for NPR, calling the film "a conceptually odious, stupid-to-the-bone enterprise "52 Betsy Sharkey of the Los Angeles Times advised guys to "Step away from the vehicle, because The Other Woman is out of control and intent on running down a certain kind of male"53
