Dedicated chick flick fans started hitting the theaters on April 25 to see “The Other Woman,” starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Upton. The movie focuses on cheating and revenge, two topics most women are familiar with. The betrayed women also plot their approach over glasses of wine, a typical scenario for many of us.
In “The Other Woman,” Cameron Diaz plays Carly Whitten, a New York lawyer with her own set of strict rules about men and relationships. She lets her guard down when she falls for Mark King, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. After Mark fails to show up to meet her father, Carly spontaneously visits his Connecticut home and finds out he has a wife named Kate (Leslie Mann).
Kate can't believe Mark has been cheating on her and Carly is upset he is a married man. Rather than directing their outrage at each other, female bonding occurs as they compare notes about their joint enemy. In the process they find Amber (Kate Upton), the third woman caught up in Mark's lies. She is jogging in the Hamptons and looks fabulous in a white bikini.
This unlikely group of female friends starts to conspire to give Mark what he deserves. The movie definitely delivers a few laughs and celebrates sisterhood in a funny way. As the women plot their revenge, they sip on glasses of Butterfly Kiss wine from Diageo Chateau & Estate Wines. The wine appears several times throughout the movie. It is an excellent example of product placement.
I happen to like the unique pink pinot grigio from Butterfly Kiss, which definitely has a girly feeling when you look at the bottle. Another movie with great examples of product placement was, “Pain and Gain,” which received the 2013 Award for Achievement in Product Placement in a Single Film in the 2014 Brandcameo Product Placement Awards. The film featured products such as Porsche, Nike and Schlotsky's Deli.
If you're looking for a few laughs, share a bottle of Butterfly Kiss with a few girlfriends before heading out to see “The Other Woman.” It might even inspire you to initiate your own revenge plot against a wayward ex-boyfriend or former husband.
