By Mary Milliken LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - (Editor's Note: Please be advised that paragraphs 15 and 17 contain language that may offend some readers) "The Other Woman" is a somewhat rare species in today's film fauna - a comedy by women, about women and for women. But not just for women, star Cameron Diaz said, even though the film is a tale of three women who band together to take revenge on the cheating cad and reduce him to a whimpering mess. "Everyone can relate to feeling betrayed," said Diaz, dismissing any notions that "The Other Woman" is solely a "chick flick." If men don't buy into that line, then there's the allure of a screwball and slightly raunchy comedy with Kate Upton, the curvaceous Sports Illustrated swimsuit cover model, who makes her first serious foray into acting as the second other woman. The film from Fox , which opens on Friday in U.S. and Canadian theaters, follows in the footsteps of female-driven comedies "Bridesmaids" in 2011 and "The Heat," which was the top-grossing comic film in 2013.
