It's a kind of unofficial sequel or sibling, three decades later, to Robert Benton's Oscar-winning Kramer vs. Kramer.

Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, 2011-12-13

 

One of the bigger challenges in Natalie Portman's career, and she responds with sublime work.

Richard Roeper, Richard Roeper.com, 2011-02-11

 

Thanks to Portman's superb work, we feel her pain acutely.

Lou Lumenick, New York Post, 2011-02-04

 

A not-bad movie (written and directed by Don Roos) based on a pretty good book ("Love and Other Impossible Pursuits" by Ayelet Waldman).

A.O. Scott, New York Times, 2011-02-03

 

Ultimately, it's Kudrow who saves the picture: Blazing and bitter, she may be allotted a third dimension only near the end of the movie, but, man, does she pack a wallop when it finally comes.

Lisa Rosman, Time Out New York, 2011-02-02

 

Often mistakes hollow hysterics for gripping drama.

William Goss, Film.com, 2011-05-24

 

Soap opera for the bourgeoisie, The Other Woman is the kind of movie Lifetime audiences would gush over as sensitive and wise.

Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies, 2011-02-04

 

Natalie Portman may have the black swan and the white swan down, but she's still working on the gray.

Dana Stevens, Slate, 2011-02-04

 

While Natalie Portman and Lisa Kudrow do some terrific work, it's hard to care about these awful characters.

Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 2011-02-04

 

Equating interpersonal issues with drama, "The Other Woman" is mostly flat and plodding.

Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, 2011-02-03

 

I didn't like a single one of these insufferable narcissists, the kid included.

Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, 2011-02-03

 

"The Other Woman" feels like it's directed at an infernally narrow upper-middle-class urbanite demographic, without being even halfway distinctive enough to attract that particular audience.

Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, 2011-02-03

 

There's a lot of story (and backstory) here, which Roos tries to squeeze in every which way, via flashbacks, long speeches, and montages set to earnest indie-pop.

Noel Murray, AV Club, 2011-02-03

 

Roos does find elements of truth here and there; frustratingly, there are too few of them.

Christy Lemire, Associated Press, 2011-02-03

 

Director Don Roos, who also scripted, wobbles tonally, sometimes disastrously.

Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, 2011-02-01

 

The screenwriter and director, Don Roos, squashes a bookful of incidents into a pile of screenplay snippets and smothers his actors in them.

Richard Brody, New Yorker, 2011-01-31

 

Portman spends most of her time crying or pouting.

Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, 2011-01-26

 

It's not good enough to warrant a theatrical showing but not bad enough to deserve universal derision.

James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 2011-01-06
