Lopez headlines new release Second Act
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.
