No Other Woman is a 2011 Filipino romantic drama film starring Anne Curtis, Derek Ramsay, and Cristine Reyes.

The film is notable for breaking box office records in the Philippines. It currently holds the title of third highest grossing Filipino film of all time having grossed P278 million[2] but was dethroned by the 2012 Metro Manila Film Fest entry, Sisterakas. The film was also screened in select cities internationally.

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.


Furniture supplier Ram (Derek Ramsay) is happily married to Charmaine (Cristine Reyes). One day, Ram lands a big client, a new luxury resort. 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. Not before long, Kara successfully seduces Ram, even though she knows about his marriage. When Charmaine learns of the affair, she finds ways to fight for her husband's waning attention.

Cast and characters



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.
