I’ve been a Jennifer Lopez fan for years — pretty much since she starred in the movie Selena. Sure, her rom-coms can be a little corny and the storylines are often very unrealistic but when I learned about her latest film Second Act, I knew it would be different. Unlike, J.Lo’s previous comedies, this one isn’t about scoring a man — at all actually. It’s about a woman struggling with self-doubt and achieving her own second act. The lessons in this film are not only inspiring but worth noting.
The film hit theaters Friday, December 21st so I made sure to drag my ass to the theaters the Sunday evening before Noche Buena. Here are a few reasons why you might want to check it out. Warning: There are definitely some mild spoilers to come.
