But he needs the help of Kara (Anne Curtis), the daughter of the owner of the resort, to finalize the deal. Kara's help, however, comes with a price, because she fancies Ram to be her lover.

ReleaseEdit

DistributionEdit

No Other Woman's grand premiere was supposed to be held on September 27, 2011, one day before the release date. However, it was cancelled because of Typhoon Pedring, which affected parts of Luzon. This cancellation was announced by Anne Curtis in her show Showtime on the morning of the supposed premiere date.

No Other Woman was released nationwide on September 28, 2011. It was also screened in selected cities around the world, including Chicago, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.[3]

The movie was given an R-13 rating by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board.

In March of 2019, the film was available on Netflix USA streaming. [4]

Box OfficeEdit

Despite Typhoon Pedring affecting Luzon in the Philippines, the film opened with a P15 million gross on its first day. The movie earned P100 million in its first five days.[5][6] In two weeks of showing, it has been declared as the highest grossing Filipino film of all time with an approximate P278 Million gross income, breaking the box office record set by the 2009 film, You Changed My Life, which grossed P225 million.[7][8]

Due to the movie's good performance at the box office, its cast and crew received monetary rewards from the production studios.[9]

On October 26, 2011, the box office records set by No Other Woman was surpassed by The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin, another movie produced by Star Cinema and Viva Films. The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin opened with a P200 million gross on its first week.[10] and has a current gross of P331.6 million.[11]

No Other Woman currently holds the record as the eighth highest-grossing Filipino film of all time.

Critical receptionEdit

Though regarded as one of the memorable romance-drama movies for Filipinos, the film received mixed reviews from local film critics. Critics criticized the weak ending of the story line which is strong especially at the middle part but praised the film for memorable one-liners and the values in the movie.

No Other Woman was graded "A" by the Cinema Evaluation Board of the Philippines.[12]
