It was nice to see Jennifer Lopez star in this brand new movie. Second Act was one of those Jennifer’s typical kind of simple storyline movie, with nothing extraordinary or exceptional. I really can’t explain if I liked the movie because it was nice, or because I have a flare for Jennifer herself. I didn’t get the excitement from most people who saw the movie; to many it was just too simple and blank.
Directed by Peter Segal and written by Justin Zackham & Elaine Goldsmith- Thomas.
Jennifer Lopez who was also known as “Maya” in the movie was a young Lady in her “40s”, who struggled with loads of issues and not having her dreams fulfilled. She had a little girl when she was very little and gave her up for adoption, one most of her friends never knew about.
She went on with her life but was never happy afterwards, she got a job in a store where she worked for years, but never got promoted due to so many stereotyping going on in the company, she was so frustrated and wanted to leave, till one day a beautiful opportunity came her way and she moved on without looking back.
The movie took a whole new twist when she got a new job which she wasn’t in any way qualified for, due to the fake personality that was created for her on social media. She had to leave up to the lies and face all that came her way.
On the job she had to compete with a better team and deal with a wicked guy who decided to dive into her past and find out who she really was. Well you’ll have to watch the rest of the movie to find out what happened when her past came unfolding.

To my verdict I would score this movie 6/10, I liked the simple story, but the movie just left you wondering if that was all? A few things were missing here and there but locations and costumes were great.
