A typical romantic comedy, only with all the cringe-worthy and annoying elements removed.

There are lots of very obvious plot points, that you know where everything is going to play out, but you kind of go along with it because we're comfortable seeing her in this role.

Here's the quickie review: Good cast, nearly hopeless script.

There's an increasing lack of comedy in Hollywood comedies. [Full Review in Spanish]

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?
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

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.

Lopez, who spends most of the film with her cleavage set on stun, is good at this sort of thing and gets particularly effective support from both her underwiring and from Leah Remini, playing her splendidly foul-mouthed best friend.

Give romantic comedies a second chance with 'Second Act.'

For fans of Jennifer Lopez fans and/or those looking for an "okay" tear jerker, Second Act is perfectly respectable entertainment. Alas the inherent messiness makes this one skippable for everyone else.

Contrived and hackneyed, Second Act is also fun.

Lopez is still a star and no mistake. But not for the first time in her chequered screen career, one wishes she was better served by the material.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

The film bounces off Lopez's ability to charm both an audience and an unfair industry, in a formulaic but undeniably fun portrait of a headstrong woman.

A distinctly mediocre comedy.

School = bad. Guts = good. Ugh.

January 24, 2019
Cheesy, sentimental and overstuffed, but mildly enjoyable in the guilty pleasure way JLo films tend to be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
January 24, 2019
For all the film's fumbled shortcuts, air of semi-intentional Nineties-ness, and the completely mad bit with a stray flight of doves, it jollies along with some amiability.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Jennifer Lopez hits her sassy stride from the off in this modern day self-improvement Cinderella romcom.

A truly terrible Working Girl knock-off...
