Reviews: Second Act (2018)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • David Bax @ Battleship Pretension
    • Excerpt: This is stuff you’ve seen and heard before. If you really want to see and hear it again, I’m sure you can get it from a Redbox in a couple of months.
  • Anne Hoyt @ AARP.org [Spanish]
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: “Second Act” is glossy, innocuous holiday fare that shouldn’t let down Jennifer Lopez’s most faithful fans, but it’s too bland to be the crowd-pleaser and the feature-length advertisement for organic skin cream that it seeks to be.
  • Darren Mooney @ the m0vie blog
    • Excerpt: Finally, a romantic comedy that gives Jennifer Lopez a worthy love interest: herself.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Screen Anarchy
    • Excerpt: Didn’t fluffy-minded workplace rom-coms lose their luster in the late 1980’s? Another Jennifer Lopez marshmallow vehicle…Contrived, patchy and meandering, Second Act cannot solve the lingering mystery behind J Lo’s penchant for queasy comedy romances
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
    • Excerpt: At least Jennifer Lopez looks Great….
  • [New] | Amir Siregar @ Amir at the Movies [Indonesian]
    • Excerpt: Jennifer Lopez remains as magnetic as ever but ‘Second Act’ is pretty much a mixed bag: It becomes two different movies after a twist halfway through, and that’s where it simultaneously becomes better and/or worse.
