Leslie Mann & Cameron Diaz Are “Soul Mates” In ‘The Other Woman’

“The Other Woman” centers on Kate, a sheltered Connecticut housewife (Leslie Mann) who plots revenge on her philandering husband Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). High powered exec Carly (Cameron Diaz) and nubile youngster Amber (Kate Upton), two ladies who were also seduced by Mark’s charms, join in on Kate’s quest to even the score.

Even though there’s enough comedy to be had, “The Other Woman” actually has its share of resonant moments, as the narrative delves into the growing friendship and bond among the three women. It may have its share of slapstick laughs and bathroom humor (Coster-Waldau has a sequence which made me queasy), but it’s the chemistry between Diaz and Mann which serves as the film’s shining star.

The Other Woman Press Conference

That chemistry was also evident during today’s press conference, as Leslie Mann and Cameron Diaz answered a reporter’s question on if they truly believed in the idea of a soul mate. “I guess Judd is my soul mate,” said Mann, who married director Judd Apatow back in 2007. “Because we have a lot of hard times, but it’s great at times too. Maybe that means he’s my soul mate? Maybe? I don’t know!”

“The Other Woman,” directed by Nick Cassavetes, opens nationwide April 25.
