Look at the poster for Second Act. You know if you're going to see this, and if you are, you'll probably dig it for the most part. Even by that standard, this is lower tier material.

A movie about family that's masquerading as a romantic comedy that might be a bit too saccharine.

...perpetually affable (if awfully conventional)...

I loved the first half of this and thought that the second half got completely insane in a way I did not appreciate.

As J.Lo's latest movie love-interest so rightly observes, "It ain't over until it's over" - and it certainly ain't over for supermarket assistant manager Maya.

It's a familiar story, but one that's delivered with style, with Lopez and Hudgens standing out.

There's something fun and sweet and innocent about it that you can't help but enjoy.

As the movie of choice after a boozy brunch or as a way to decompress after holiday stress, Second Act-goofy and cliched, but not offensively either-will do fine.

Second Act's cinematic commentary should inspire women all over the globe to never give up no matter what age. Seriously, can you really put price tag on a dreams?

Stretches the bounds of contrivance past credibility.

Hollywood hokum can be a fine thing, but even if you found this storyline in a quaint old melodrama, you'd think it too stupid.
