The critical consensus

Mann and Diaz make a likable double act and the sunny locations are easy-on-the eye, including Miami and the Bahamas, but by the end you might just be wishing for a handsome prince to turn up and save the day.

Nick Cassavetes helms a game but dispiriting picture that clearly has its sights set on the Bridesmaids pot of gold, but in reality resembles an unalluring revamp of the First Wives Club – plus the finale from Home Alone where Macaulay Culkin sets booby traps for the wannabee burglars.

lthough Cassavetes' latest is not remotely spiky and sassy enough to satisfy, the revenge at least is pretty sweet.

The plotting is predictable, the cameo from Nicki Minaj is pointless and some of the humour is sadistic in the extreme, but the film yields at least a few chuckles along the way.

The Other Woman scrawls out a dumb dumb-feminist message with a big, fat marker pen. The women get revenge against the bad man. In the process they stalk him, worry about Loverat and talk about him incessantly. Hollywood 1 – 0 Bechdel.

Nick Cassavetes's "candy-dipped" comedy lurches in ungainly fashion between increasingly contrived set-pieces, its three stars flailing their way through the over-cranked scenic caper japes with little or no sense of sisters actually doing it for themselves. Or each other. Or us.
