Its such a good movie to watch specially for the Holidays. Funny and inspiring.
Many funny moments. Interesting plot. But like so many movies lately, the ending seemed to be "thrown together"
Second Act is a kitchen-sink drama that goes for surprise over real seriousness. It’s a Jennifer Lopez vehicle, and thus still worth a look. But Second Act’s second act proves pretty hard to follow.
If there are any dadaist cinephiles out there, perhaps they can reclaim Second Act as a multilayered masterpiece of illogic. Certainly the film seems destined to survive all future nuclear winters, enduring as a time capsule of humanity at its most pitiably pedestrian.
It feels like a confused puppy, caught between a stale script and a very confused storyline that frequently loses focus.
