“The Other Woman”: Kate Upton/Cameron Diaz Flick Cheers Violent Poisoning of Men (Rupert Murdoch Made This Flick)

By Debbie Schlussel


What if a Hollywood studio put out a film in which three men, all of them cheated on by the same woman, violently poisoned her in ways that could get them sent to prison for decades? Would the media applaud?


Nope. Hollywood would be besieged by angry feminists marching against this “Violence Against Women.” Here, the marching should be done on the front lawn of Rupert Murdoch’s 20th Century Fox, which made this male-bashing garbage.

But “The Other Woman,” with the roles reversed, has all of the mainstream media applauding, cheering, and yukking it up with Kate Upton, Cameron Diaz, and Leslie Mann of “The Other Woman,” a long, boring, unfunny anti-male revenge fantasy (and comedy that just isn’t funny). And they get away with it because no one will ever have the cojones to whine about the real war on gender in America: the War on Men.

You’ve seen this movie a gazillion times before. Remember the 1990s awful “First Wives Club”? Yeah, I’d rather forget that, too. But it’s been dredged up again with this decade’s version of Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn done wrong by evil males played by Mann and Diaz, with Upton thrown in so that she can jiggle around her breasts and butt in a skimpy string bikini because otherwise who’d pay to go see a movie with the two aforementioned hags, Diaz and Mann–both of whom hit the wall decades ago?

You know this movie. Hollywood trots out its typical, stock bete noir male who not only two-times, he three-times, and infinity-times. And he cheats financially and tries to take his wife for everything. A complete creep. But this time the soon-“empowered” sisterhood of the cheated upon decides to get revenge. They poison the guy’s drinks with hormones and medications to make him grow large nipples and manboobs and shrink his penis. They also poison his drinks with excessive laxatives so he has bathroom accidents–the movie calls them “fecal incidents”–all over the place. And they put Nair (a hair depilatory for women) into his shampoo. Just one of these would result in several criminal counts against them, as it should be. But don’t let that get in the way of Hollywood and the media cheering on this crap.

With more and more women in the workplace, women getting the majority of college and grad school spots and degrees, earning more than males starting out in the workplace, and cheating on their husbands and male significant others in higher numbers than ever, do you think they’ll ever do the anti-female version of this movie? Think again. That doesn’t fit into the “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 10 Years Later”/”Sex & the City Hags 20 Years Later” narrative of “We need more grrrrlpower!” You’ll never see a contrary message or any that reflects today’s reality of men under continued attack and on the decline.

Not with the media and Sheryl Sandberg constantly hyping the “woe is me”/”women done wrong” anthems of the “Lean In” BS. All the women want the same penisless Mr. Mom like the one she’s married to, and we need more anti-male revenge fantasies to help make it happen.

Leslie Mann is an annoying, airheaded housewife who has given up having children so her husband can build internet businesses and make them rich (not sure how that involves putting off having children). And she comes up with all of the fantastic internet ideas, while her husband uses them to rip off investors and make her the unwitting fall guy who signs paperwork without understanding any of it. Meanwhile, her hubby is cheating on her with Cameron Diaz and many other women who do not know he’s already married. Diaz and Mann meet along with another paramour, Kate Upton, and they become fast friends. The scorned sisterhood is ready for revenge and, as the saying goes, hell hath no fury like it.

Frankly, if you had to go through life living with Mann’s annoying idiocy and high-pitched, baby-talk voice–actually, it’s more like the sound of giraffes wailing in mid-beheading–you’d cheat, too. Her voice should be played over and over again on the loudspeaker at Gitmo. This movie doesn’t make a very good case against males perpetrating adultery, especially with these hags involved (again, Kate Upton is thrown in to make this appealing to more than two middle-aged cat ladies and to provide some entertainment amidst the non-stop torture for guys who get dragged to this flick by their female dates).

I’m tired of this hackneyed, stale, overused anti-male BS. And I’m not the only one. I predict this film will bomb.

Take the media to task for pimping this two-hour commercial advocating the violent poisoning of men.

It’s not just the men who are poisoned here, it’s the minds of the moronic women who pay ten bucks-plus to go see it.

**** UPDATE: One thing I forgot to mention. As I watched this movie I thought, “We’ll never see a major film called, ‘The Other Wife,’ in which the three abused wives of a Muslim poison and otherwise get revenge on him.” Yup, Muslim males are the only ones safe from Hollywood’s male-bashing.


Watch the trailer . . .

More and more people have stopped going to the movies. Again, everyone, boycott leftist anti-male, anti-American, anti-Judeo-Christian Hollywood.

Jonathan E. Grant on April 25, 2014 at 11:59 am

    JEG- I quit going to the movies because I don’t want my money to be funneled into the DNC and/or “progressive” causes.

    Pats on April 25, 2014 at 6:55 pm

Only two of the First Klingon Debbie? I about laughed out of my chair here at work at your rating of this film. I’ve seen the commericals and one of my co-workers said that the only reason that he would see this is because of Kate Upton. He likes the big boobed twit so I told him to go waste his 6.50. I totally agree with you on Leslie Mann’s voice. That or Miley Virus should be pumped into the speakers at Gitmo 24/7. Those Muslim scumbags have to easy there anyway. My kids want to go see the new Captain America movie so thats on the agenda for tomorrow during the matinee hours. I too think that this will bomb bigtime. If nothing because Camoron Diass is in it. I can’t think of any movie this dope has been in that did good at the box office. To each his own I guess.

The devolution of these films and their audiences makes me think of Lord of the Flies in slow motion.

Little Al on April 25, 2014 at 12:30 pm

    That comparison would be a bit unfair to Lord of the Flies. But in any case, something tells me Darryl F. Zanuck – the onetime 20th Century Fox studio boss, among which pictures released by the studio during his tenure included A Letter to Three Wives (1949) – would be spinning in his grave over this one. From A Letter to Three Wives to The Other Woman – now that’s devolution.

    ConcernedPatriot on April 25, 2014 at 1:30 pm

Read the reviews (from film critics) on Rotten Tomatoes. Only 26% of those folks like the movie. As far as seeing Kate Upton’s “assets,” they’re all over the web. Why pay any money to see them on the big screen? You’ve seen one, you’ve seen them both.

JeffT on April 25, 2014 at 12:31 pm

All I can add about Kate Upton’s, er, performance in this film is this: In comparison, Sue Upton (absolutely no relation) from The Benny Hill Show was a better actress and comedienne.

And to think those who would cheer this film on loathe Fox News (its compromised position, via “Prince” Alwaleed, notwithstanding).

ConcernedPatriot on April 25, 2014 at 12:54 pm

I disagree Ms Schlussel. Hollywood would be OK if it were three men poisoning Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann or other notable conservative females

phaedruscj on April 25, 2014 at 1:03 pm

Kate Upton has a face that’s not that great, twig legs and an ass like a 13 year old boy. But I’ve met guys that like that. I’ll take Rachael Ray in her prime, or even now, ANY DAY, OF ANY WEEK, OF ANY MONTH, OF ANY YEAR!!! Or Rebecca Budig when she weighed about 5-7 lbs. more than she does now. Or Nigella Lawson. Or Leah Remini, provided she’s a bit hefty, because when she was young and lean, she had practically no ass.

If this post goes through, Debbie, I’ve put up three others on recent threads, including the Tropical Storm Carter death notice. They didn’t go through. Meira said something about spam filters a while back. Who knows? Could have been the horrible internet service I have here in PR, can’t think of any other reason why my posts would have been stifled.

I copied and saved the text of a post one day, and when I attempted to repeat it, got a message that said, “it appears you’ve already said this,” yet it never went through. I have very little time for posting these days, and in the foreseeable future. Many things have happened, and are happening in my personal life, which have caused this constriction on my internet time.

Just wanted to let you know that I am still extremely grateful to you for your commentary and education, particularly with regard to the phony religion, world’s largest gang, known as Islam. Still referring people to this site, and always reading myself, although falling behind occasionally due to aforementioned time constraints.

Wasn’t there also the movie John Tucker Must Die? I never saw it but it sounds like another in the “men suck and deserve any evil thing we do to them to get even” genre.

SM: Yes, very similar to that movie, which I also hated. DS

Sean M on April 25, 2014 at 1:33 pm

Excellent review and well-made points about the creepy war-on-white-men theme. By why only two “Ball Crushers” (MICHELLE LAVAUGHN ROBINSON HUSSEIN OBAMA IDI AMIN DADAS)to go along with the Marxes and hags?

DS_ROCKS! on April 25, 2014 at 1:41 pm

In the past several years and decades, movies with such content of violence or such stuff relating to that nature have inspired some folks to go out into the reality world and justify such wicked and whacky behavior upon the next person, irrespectively, I’m not saying that this specific film will inspire some women to poison their husband with such substance, etc., only time will tell if something like that does indeed occur?

Sean R. on April 25, 2014 at 4:18 pm

I wonder if these women movie stars got paid the same as if they were men?

Panhandle on April 25, 2014 at 5:04 pm

Also, “Wicker Man”

Panhandle on April 25, 2014 at 5:10 pm

Do you think Bill Clinton will enjoy this movie?

Little Al on April 25, 2014 at 5:54 pm

Yes, Bill Clinton will be seeing “The Other Woman” more than once, and is even trying to go on the promo tour with Kate Upton. But the critics are wrong about “The Other Woman.” I think I’m smelling an Oscar here. (Or at least I’m smelling something peculiar.)

Ralph Adamo on April 25, 2014 at 9:59 pm

Kate Upton has great gazogas, but what an overrated bimbo. She looks like any typical woman you can meet just about anywhere. Pretty, yes, but not special. She has a weird shaped waist.

I don’t think this will bomb. Probably huge opening then quick death. White bread America, Oprah watching broads love these types of movies, and yes, they throw in Upton to think the sissified husbands of these bims will go with them.

If you are a man and go to this, you are gay or very whipped.

Jeff_W on April 26, 2014 at 1:32 am

Anyone who likes this movie has never had a member of their family intentionally fatally poisoned. I have. It is SLOW and painful.

Mals on April 26, 2014 at 7:43 am

I can guarantee you, films like this are all about instilling a desensitization to such an aspect as ‘Mals’ noted. (It’s just like those who think the scene where an old lady’s two pet dogs are crushed to death in A Fish Called Wanda is soooo funny, have not had such a thing happen to their pets.) And per ‘Jeff_W’s’ comments about Kate Upton: She does have all the sex appeal, charisma and even acting ability of wet cardboard, not that y’all mention it. In the poster for the film, she has all the look of a “kid sister” going along with the two hags for the ride. (And speaking of nothing in particular, apparently she’s the great-granddaughter of a founder of Whirlpool appliances – after whom, B.T.W., her Islamo-pandering Congressman of an uncle was named.)

ConcernedPatriot on April 26, 2014 at 9:41 am

It is a very tired story line. I would say that the screenwriters for this load stopped thinking after 1970, even if they were conceived after that date.

Worry01 on April 26, 2014 at 2:54 pm

‘“We’ll never see a major film called, ‘The Other Wife,’ in which the three abused wives of a Muslim poison and otherwise get revenge on him.” Yup, Muslim males are the only ones safe from Hollywood’s male-bashing.’

Awesome note by Debbie and sickeningly true.

DS_ROCKS! on April 26, 2014 at 4:52 pm

Point about Muslims and the war on gender is spot on but otherwise a complete over reaction to a silly lightweight movie meant to entertain. I saw it and enjoyed it…no rational person can read an endorsement of poisoning another human into this movie which is why the effects were there for one joke and disappeared for the rest of the movie, and complaining that Upton had few lines and was along for her looks is like complaining that water is wet. Don’t politicize everything…lighten up and enjoy!

Richard Anderson on April 27, 2014 at 11:15 am

Another point about the ‘criminal’ behavior involving Nair, laxatives and such…one scene each and they were gone….it was a Roadrunner cartoon…Wiley Coyote falls 1000 feet off a cliff followed by an anvil landing on him and the next scene there he is healthy as ever…and didn’t the male lead look a lot like Aaron Eckhart?

Richard Anderson on April 27, 2014 at 11:19 am

The Other Woman was number one at $24,700,000…

Too bad… so sad…

Suey Park on April 28, 2014 at 1:10 am

    Yes, sooooeeeeey. It is sad indeed.

    skzion on April 28, 2014 at 1:31 am

    Sort of proves P.T. Barnum’s old dictum about there being one born every minute, alas, alack . . .

    ConcernedPatriot on April 29, 2014 at 1:26 pm

      What I find so insrteteing is you could never find this anywhere else.

      Earthwind on May 24, 2014 at 12:42 am

PS: I’d stay of ferries for awhile.
