Lopez head­lines new re­lease Sec­ond Act

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

RO­MAN­TIC com­edy has de­liv­ered some great films that sur­vive the test of time.

Think When Harry Met Sally, The Princess Bride, Ground­hog Day or, go­ing back fur­ther, Some Like It Hot. Oth­ers fade away like foot­steps in the sand.

Time will judge whether Sec­ond Act, a new re­lease open­ing to­mor­row at Bowen Sum­mer­gar­den Cin­ema, fits the first or sec­ond cat­e­gory.

The film stars Jen­nifer Lopez as Maya. Stuck in a low-pay­ing job, the chance to ful­fil her ca­reer am­bi­tions is re­alised, al­beit in a case of mis­taken iden­tity.

A pri­vate fi­nance firm be­lieves she is an ac­com­plished con­sul­tant and hires her to close a ma­jor busi­ness deal.

Lopez, who is one of the pro­duc­ers of the film, may not be the megas­tar of a decade ago, but she still lights up the big screen.

Her re­cent roles, both in film and tele­vi­sion, has shown her will­ing­ness to dis­play some ver­sa­til­ity.

Sec­ond Act boasts some fa­mil­iar faces in the cast with Vanessa Hud­gens (Zoe), Leah Rem­ini (Joan) and Milo Ven­timiglia (Trey).

Di­rected by Peter Se­gal (Tommy Boy, Anger Man­age­ment, 50 First Dates, The Long­est Yard), Sec­ond Act is rated M.
