Second Act is a comedy in the vein of Working Girl and Maid In Manhattan. Jennifer Lopez stars as Maya, a 40-year-old woman struggling with frustrations from unfulfilled dreams. Until, that is, she gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue that street smarts are as valuable as book smarts, and that it is never too late for a Second Act.

The trailers for this have amused me, especially the one with the bad Chinese translation.

This might be a decent "feel good" movie to catch as a matinee. It does look extremely predictable. But, J-Lo is always nice on the eyes.

These kind of movies don't draw much discussion here, so not expecting this to be a very active thread.

I saw this tonight. It was cute and had some charm.

Basically it's a big screen version of a Hallmark Christmas movie. Very predictable and cliched. But, most of the characters were likable including J-Lo's character and that made it watchable. Most of the funnier scenes were shown in the trailer, including J-Lo's scene where she's faking speaking Mandarin. There are some story elements that are a little contrived and convenient.

The theater I saw this in tonight was surprisingly very full. I'd give this 3 stars and a B-

Yea, it was decent. I saw it with the wife on Christmas. I was so happy that Hudgen's character didn't turn out like I thought she would in the beginning of the movie.
