Movie Review: Second Act

I received tickets to see Second Act in exchange for my honest review.

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. Starring Jennifer Lopez, Leah Remini, Vanessa Hudgens with Treat Williams and Milo Ventimiglia. Directed by Peter Segal. (STXFilms) This film is rated PG-13.

A few days ago I had the opportunity to see an advice screening of Second Act and decided to take my papa. Taking my grandpa to a movie was an incredible gamble, as he tends to fall asleep watching movies. Falling asleep would be fine if he was silent, but he snores… loudly. I mean, if he would fall asleep in the theater he would ruin the movie for everyone with his loud obnoxious echoing snoring, but he didn\’t snore. In fact, he didn\’t fall asleep. That\’s right my grandpa stayed awake through the ENTIRE movie. I don’t think Second Act could get a better review! 

Not only was the movie well written, but it was funny as well. Let’s be honest, we all love a good laugh. Second Act will be playing in theaters come the end of this month and I highly recommend checking it out for a date night or just a night out with girls.
