Second Act proves Jennifer Lopez remains as magnetic as ever on the big screen; unfortunately, the movie's muddled story isn't always worthy of her gifts.

Until, that is, she gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as book smarts, and that it is never too late for a Second Act.

Audience Reviews for Second Act

  • Jan 05, 2019
    I've always enjoyed J.Lo's films, but Second Act comes across as contrived, formulaic and dull, trying too hard to be a feel-good holiday film but fails miserably in delivering what's really a tired and messy story line. She should hold out for better scripts.
