....the best dumbest film you can see this week!

Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton star in this week's biggest movie The Other Woman, where they play women competing over the affections of [Game of Thrones](movie:817617) star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

But aside from who is in the movie, what else should you know about it?

1. A "Girl's Movie" Knocked Captain America Off The Top Spot

A huge 75% of the audience for this movie was women, and it managed to knock the huge blockbuster (a guy's film) [Captain America: The Winter Soldier](movie:254973), off the top spot.

Maybe Scarlett Johansson will decide to team up with The Other Women next time?

Scarlett Johansson for The Other Woman 2?

2. It has never heard of the Bechdel Test

The Bechdel Test is a way to judge whether or not a movie is sexist. It works like this:

1) Does it have more than 2 women in it? (This movie does).

2) Do they talk to each other (They do!).

3) About anything other than a man? (Unfortunately not).

This movie gets a FAIL

3. Kate Upton Felt She Needed "Support" During Bikini Scene

Actress and Sports Illustrated model Kate Upton spoke recently about feeling uncomfortable when shooting the movie's already much publicized bikini scene.

She said:

When you're filming a bikini scene, nobody's wearing a bikini. It's only you and 60 crew members.
[Diaz and Mann] saw that I was feeling a little uncomfortable-because anyone's uncomfortable when that many people are staring at you - but these two came and ran beside me offscreen

She added:

I've never had support like that before

Clearly not:

But will you be going to see [The Other Woman](movie:739914)? Write in with your reasons why or why not below!
