...perpetually affable (if awfully conventional)...
July 7, 2019
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.
June 5, 2019
It's a familiar story, but one that's delivered with style, with Lopez and Hudgens standing out.
May 6, 2019
There's something fun and sweet and innocent about it that you can't help but enjoy.
May 2, 2019
Fans of Lopez and this type of makeover comedy are sure to respond positively to Peter Segal's amusing, if cautious film.
March 20, 2019
A typical romantic comedy, only with all the cringe-worthy and annoying elements removed.
February 7, 2019
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.
February 3, 2019
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?
January 28, 2019
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.
January 28, 2019
Give romantic comedies a second chance with 'Second Act.'
January 25, 2019
Contrived and hackneyed, Second Act is also fun.
January 25, 2019
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.
January 24, 2019
Cheesy, sentimental and overstuffed, but mildly enjoyable in the guilty pleasure way JLo films tend to be.
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.
January 24, 2019
Jennifer Lopez hits her sassy stride from the off in this modern day self-improvement Cinderella romcom.
January 23, 2019
This is a perfectly pleasant romcom with JLo doing what she does with tons of charisma. Could have used more romance and the lie feels a little stretched out but it's cute watch.
January 23, 2019
We haven't seen much of J.Lo on the big screen of late and her superstar charisma remains undiminished, while there's an earthiness and sincerity to her performance that allows her to convince as a mere 'civilian'.
January 22, 2019
Second Act has a more surprising plot strand that gives the entire thing backbone. Yes, it has its share of cringe and cheesy dialogue, but for the most part this really is perfectly serviceable fare for a distracting January evening out.
January 21, 2019
In general, Second Act is a film that could have gone directly to television. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 18, 2019
[Second Act] entertains, but nothing more. [Full review in Spanish]
