Temptation is a sweet crime in a married life but always remember that cheaters will never win especially if you have a brilliant wife plotting revenge to teach you a lesson. Here are three great movies that will definitely give you a good laugh about fickle husbands and how they get the revenge they deserve:
The Other Woman (2014)
The Other Woman is a romantic comedy flick about a wife who gets cheated on by her husband not just once but twice. Kate (Leslie Mann) has given up her dreams to become a full-time housewife to Mark (played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) but things get messy when she discovers that her husband is having an affair with Carly Whitten (Cameron Diaz) and Amber (Kate Upton). Both Carly and Amber do not know that Mark is already married and when Kate asks them to plot revenge, they agree. They put estrogen in his smoothies, hair removal cream on his shampoo, and withdraw all his embezzled money that was named in his wife’s account; this leaves him bankrupt. The three girls later confront Mark with Kate demanding for a divorce.
Gone Girl (2014)
Gone Girl is a film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s 2012 novel which bears the same name. The American thriller movie tells about the story of a glamorous and brilliant wife who framed her cheating husband for her disappearance. When Amy Dunne (Rosamond Pike) discovered her husband Nick Dunne’s (Ben Affleck) unfaithful liaison with his college student, she comes up with a well-crafted plan to seek vengeance. On their fifth wedding anniversary, Amy goes missing with signs that she was murdered; all clues point to her husband as the suspect for her disappearance. This movie is the perfect reminder of what a girl is capable of doing when she is cheated.
She-Devil is a loose adaptation of the 1983 novel The Life and Loves of a She-Devil by Fay Weldon. The dark comedy movie tells about the story of Ruth (Roseanne Barr) an overweight and totally unattractive wife to a handsome accountant husband Bob (Ed Begley Jr.). Bob is having an extra-marital affair with his client Mary Fisher (Meryl Streep), a novelist. After leaving Ruth to be with Mary Fisher, the former then sets a number of revenge plots to get even with her philandering husband. The story ends with Bob in prison for embezzlement and Mary Fisher and Ruth starting new lives of their own.
