Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Kate (Leslie Mann) are a happy couple, but things are getting strange. Mark spends all his time working and training for a marathon, until Carly (Cameron Diaz) shows up to surprise Mark and finds his wife at home. Pretty soon they figure out that Mark is sharing himself with both of them and they form a strange kind of bond until they meet Amber (Kate Upton) who is also out with Mark. Then they plan a stunning revenge.
This is a refreshing romantic comedy that reinforces the belief that men are simply pigs. Mark is the absolute pig, lying, cheating, stealing, embezzling, and just a rotten guy. Of course These girls aren’t all so innocent either, but he deserves everything they would like to give him. But this isn’t a new story. First Wives Club did it better as did Addicted to Love when Matthew Broderick and Meg Ryan set out to get revenge on their significant others. It was a very pleasant diversion, and has some really good laughs along the way. Kate Upton is fabulous to look at, and does make you feel sorry for what’s happened to Cameron Diaz who is still beautiful, but really showing the wear and tear these days. And Nicki Minaj is only on screen a few times, and doesn’t have a lot of squeaky whining voice parts, so if you’re really sneaky, you can check your phone or pay attention to the last few Skittles in the bottom of the bag while she is on screen.
Really, I did enjoy this film. I didn’t expect it to be as funny as it was, although a lot of the best jokes are in the trailer (I hate it when they do that), but it still had plenty of laugh out loud moments that the whole audience seemed to enjoy. All the actors did a pretty good job, although I don’t think Kate Upton is as bad as she appears here. She is supposed to be the beautiful dummy, and she pulls that off really easily. All in all, the girls in your life are probably going to get a kick out of this and it’s definitely not that bad for a guy to have to sit through. So if she gives in to your superhero movies, give her a break and take her to see this one. It’s bound to be a lot of fun.
