The weekend belongs to the Fox female-driven comedy The Other Woman, which finally knocks Captain America: The Winter Soldier out of the top slot for the first time in four weeks. It proves the continued viability of Bad Teacher star Cameron Diaz in edgy comedies. And while this is a fairly mundane box office weekend before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits, there is a milestone that happens this weekend.
