Cameron Diaz spent a lot of time behind the camera, which led to her retiring for some time. Aside from a video short in 2020, Diaz initially went on an extended hiatus in 2014. However, before she stopped acting, one of her last films in 2014 was a romantic comedy called The Other Woman. In fact, this film was one of her last three before she disappeared from Hollywood for a while. It could be that she’s announced her comeback or the movie is just plain good, but The Other Woman currently dominates the streaming charts. The film is currently in the top 5 on HBO Max.
The other women had quite an impressive cast including Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, Don Johnson, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Taylor Kinney and Nicki Minaj. However, the all-star cast is one of the critics who gave the film a meager 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The audience loved the film a lot more as the viewer rating is a much higher 57%. The critics claimed that a story meant to be more empowering was given a cheap laugh. The film grossed just over $196 million at the box office on a budget of $40 million, which still makes it a success in terms of money earned.
The other women follows Carly Whitten (Cameron Diaz), who has started a wild relationship with Mark King (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). After being intimate for a few months, Carly believes their relationship is real as she wants to introduce him to her father, Frank (Don Johnson). However, after Mark claims he can’t see Carly and her father due to a leak at his house, she shows up in a sexy plumber’s outfit anyway to make him feel better. However, Carly finds out that Mark is married. His wife Kate (Leslie Mann) opens the door, leaving Carly embarrassed and looking for answers. Kate visits Carly in her office and the two want to find out what’s really going on with Mark. They know Mark has cheated on both women, so they investigate further to find out that Mark is dating a third woman named Amber (Kate Upton). The three then team up to make sure Mark gets what’s coming to him. Without ruining the rest of the films, fans can check out what happens in this romantic comedy on HBO Max.
