Critic Reviews for Second Act
The film feels as finely tailored to J. Lo as the booty-enhancing pencil skirts she wears throughout the movie: Second Act's Maya from Queens is our Jenny from the Block.
So much of the humor and so many of the situations in "Second Act" feel like warmed-over Second Helpings of a dinner from long ago. A dinner that wasn't all that memorable in the first place.
Even the boundless charms of Jennifer Lopez cannot overcome a mess of a script in Second Act.
Eating a wad of raw cookie dough is satisfying, but it might also make you sick. That's how "Second Act" is.
When the contrivances get too much in this 'Working Girl' for millennials, just watch take-charge, live-wire Jenny from the block deliver miles of smiles. Sometimes star power is its own reward.
Audience Reviews for Second Act
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.
