"The Other Woman" is a comedy about love, lust, and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody's fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Coster-Waldau) is married, she's less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark's wife Kate (Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Upton)! Before long, however, the betrayed beauties have become unlikely pals who've decided to teach their three-timing man a lesson. The more the trio learns about Mark, the worse he seems, and the more fun they have without him. (Gary Reber)

Special features include six deleted scenes (HD 09:48), a gag reel (HD 03:32), upfront previews, and an UltraViolet digital copy.

The 1080p AVC picture exhibits a wonderful filmic texture with a saturated color palette that is vibrant throughout. The production design and environment backdrops of the cityscape and beaches are beautiful. Fleshtones are naturally hued with a healthy look. Hues exhibit an accurate balance with excellent contrast, deep blacks, and revealing shadow delineation. Resolution is excellent, with fine detail exhibited throughout. This is a great-looking film that is sure to please the eyes. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audioô 5.1-channel soundtrack is a focused dialogue presentation, with the music score providing occasional surround energy. Atmospherics also occasionally provide ambient envelopment, but otherwise the sonic signature is monaural. Dialogue sounds natural and generally well integrated spatially. Fidelity is excellent.
