The Other Woman

Picture Credit
My thoughts before the movie: I feel like this movie is going to be kind of like This Means War where two men are both dating the same woman and they let her choose who she wants. I think that this movie is going to be a typical chick flick. 

My thoughts after the movie: I was completely wrong. That movie was so much better than This Means War. Basically, The Other Woman is about Kate (Leslie Mann) finding out that her husband Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) has been sleeping with Carly (Cameron Diaz) and they become friends and try to ruin Mark's life. They soon find out that Mark has also been sleeping with another woman named Amber (Kate Upton). I thought that this movie would be a typical chick flick, but my dad was laughing along with all the women and few other men in the theater. It was such a great movie and I really enjoyed it. Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz had me laughing almost the entire time. Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz are so funny apart but they're even more hilarious together. It was a good movie, but I won't go see it at the theater again. If anything, I'll wait until it comes out on DVD, but I probably won't watch it again anytime soon.

My Three Words: Hilarious, uplifting, and delightful

My Rating: 3/5

They gave us free bags so I see a giveaway in the near future!

My thoughts before the movie: I'm honestly really scared to see this movie because I feel like it won't be anything like the book.

My thoughts after the movie: Whoever was in charge of casting deserves an award. Shailene Woodley is the perfect Tris. I was a little nervous about Theo James at first because he seems a bit old to play Four, but he's the perfect Four. Miles Teller is hilarious as Peter. Kate Winslet is such an amazing actress that she made me hate Jeanine even more than I already did. I love how the special effects crew made Chicago look as if there had been a war there and not like the typical futuristic city. Although the movie wasn't 100% accurate, it was pretty close to the book. I see why they left out the things that they did. But, I'm really disappointed that they didn't have the butter knife scene, Uriah, and Dauntless cake in the movie at all. Uriah's name was on the ranking board, but that doesn't explain his character and he is really important in Insurgent and Allegiant. I also didn't like that Tris just shot Will and moved on without any emotion. I hated that, in the movie, they didn't really go in depth with the secondary characters and I think that they should have because friends are an important part of the book. Overall, the movie stayed true to the book. I really enjoyed the movie and will definitely be seeing it again on theaters.

My Three Words: Action-packed, wonderful, and intriguing

My Rating: 4/5
