Movie Info

Second Act is a comedy in the vein of Working Girl and Maid In Manhattan. Jennifer Lopez stars as Maya, a 40-year-old woman struggling with frustrations from unfulfilled dreams. 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.


Critic Reviews for Second Act

All Critics (7)

These three stories are easy to connect and perhaps that's part of the problem. It's not that the movie doesn't make sense; it's that it becomes too obvious.

By-and-large, the film goes exactly where you'll expect it to go from start to finish, but is propelled by the strength of the characters and some wonderfully deft screenwriting.

As for J-Lo herself, she tries gamely, but saddled with one of the worst scripts of the year, this definitely feels closer to her work in Maid in Manhattan than Out of Sight.

While a motivated Lopez does not let herself or her loyal fanbase down in Second Act, the movie itself is guilty as charged on both fronts.

The film even has something to say, at least glancingly, about class prejudice in the real world, although in true Hollywood fashion the message is paradoxical.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Honesty and taking chances are the themes of this enjoyable rom com in which relationships, careers, secrets and lies all jostle for a place.
