A very sweet film with many silly moments. One of my girlfriends was laughing the entire time. As far as the storyline goes... relatively predictable and unrealistic at times. That’s the beauty of a movie like this though; you just enjoy the feel-good essence of it and leave the theater with a more optimistic perspective on life, love, and relationships.

Many funny moments. Interesting plot. But like so many movies lately, the ending seemed to be "thrown together"

It was just an okay movie. Sure there were some funny parts but it was mostly trying to tug at your heart strings. Speaking of that, while some parts of the movie do achieve it for the most part it just felt bland. If anything, my money was well spent seeing the chemistry between Jennifer Lopez & Leah Remini/Vanessa Hudgens.

This movie has no idea what it wants to focus on so you can’t really care about anything. Is it a second chance at a career, at a mother daughter relationship, or at love? Oh it tries all three but none of it works.

Every trope I can think of was used as a plot point. Completely contrived. But what pissed me off most was when they twisted off the caps of two Sierra Nevada beers. They're not twist offs.

Wow! So good. The plot was so different from any other movie I've seen. Half of the things that happened were completely unpredictable. I laughed, teared up, got frustrated … overall great movie! Must see!

It was exactly what I expected from a Jennifer Lopez movie - a girl down on her luck finds love and success with the help of her girlfriends. It had funny parts that made me laugh out loud & was just what I needed.

Jlo can’t act. It was very predictable. Too many things going on at once. This would be a good Netflix or Hulu movie. Not worth paying $13 to see it thou. Very cliche

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.

Richard Lawson

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.
