‘Second Act’ Film Review: Jennifer Lopez’s Charm Squandered in Tired Rom-Com

‘Second Act’ Film Review: Jennifer Lopez’s Charm Squandered in Tired Rom-Com
Say what you will about Jennifer Lopez, but one thing is true: She takes risks. Never sticking to a particular type, she has run the gamut in her choice of films from romantic comedies to thrillers to biopics and beyond. “Second Act” is her first live-action film since 2015’s “The Boy Next Door,” and it feels like a confused puppy, caught between a stale script and a very confused storyline that frequently loses focus.

Maya (Jennifer Lopez) is a big-box store assistant manager who has goals. She wants to wow her boss (Larry Miller) in the hopes of getting a well-deserved promotion to general manager. Instead, he introduces her to the white guy (Dan Bucatinsky) with an Ivy League Mba he hired for the position. Why? Because she isn’t a college grad, and no matter how many years she has put into the store, how loved she is by her co-workers,

Will Smith, LeBron James, Jon Stewart Join Dave Chappelle for All-Star Standup Show
Dave Chappelle hosted a star-studded surprise comedy show at the Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on Wednesday night (Sept. 19). Joining the comic for a turn on stage was the multi-hyphenate Will Smith, basketball giant and recent L.A. transplant LeBron James, Jon Stewart, Michelle Wolf, Katt Williams, Michael Che and John Mayer, who provided background guitar work and the occasional zinger.

Few of those gathered at the private venue expected such high-wattage guests, though a mandatory lock-out of all mobile devices should have offered the first clue. Indeed, there was not a cell phone in sight as jokes delivered tackled such topics as the #MeToo movement, race and religion. “Comedy ‘Fight Club'” was how Chappelle described the night, which offered more than three-and-a-half hours of belly laughs. The show also had its serious moments. Jon Stewart made an impassioned plea for gun control; Williams sang a hopeful tune for

And with Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s “A Star Is Born” hitting theaters on Oct. 5, it might also be a good idea to check out the 1976 remake with Barbra Streisand before it leaves Sept. 15.

Jack Nicholson movies: 45 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Cuckoo’s Nest,’ ‘Chinatown,’ ‘The Shining’

Jack Nicholson movies: 45 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Cuckoo’s Nest,’ ‘Chinatown,’ ‘The Shining’
While an English-language version of Germany’s 2016 foreign-language contender “Toni Erdmann” doesn’t feel all that necessary, it would have been interesting to see how Jack Nicholson would have handled the prankish pop who stalks his workaholic daughter. But now it seems that Jack-o, who came up with the idea for the re-do, is no longer involved in the project. Rumors about memory loss and retirement are out there.

But, taking a cue from the title of the last movie he appeared in, 2010’s “How Do You Know,” how do we know? When I talked to Nicholson for this reunion with director James L. Brooks – an unfortunate flop – I asked him why he waited three years to do another movie after his hit, “The Bucket List.” His response: “I’ve been reading scripts. Yes, they are all very similar. You just keep getting these stories about retirement, or the wife

’2:Hrs’ VOD Review

Stars: Harry Jarvis, Ella-Rae Smith, Alhaji Fofana, Keith Allen, Siobhan Redmond, Seann Walsh, Marek Larwood | Written by Roland Moore | Directed by D. James Newton

The concept of knowing when you die is something the we, as humans, seem to focus on as wwe get older. It’s also been the subject of a number of films: from thrillers such as D.O.A., to comedies like The Bucket List… the idea of knowing when you die (and to a lesser extent “how” you die) is fascinating for filmmakers and audiences alike.

Brand-new British teen comedy 2:Hrs tells the story of budding graffiti artist and an expert slacker Tim (Harry Jarvis), who gets more than he bargained for when he convinces his two best friends, Vic and Alf, to skip a school trip. They stumble into a press conference being held by scientist Lena Eidelhorn (Siobhan Redmond) who is unveiling her latest invention,

Rob Reiner: His best films to date

For about 35 years now, Rob Reiner has been a director. For the first decade and a half, he was among the best in the business. Recently? Not so much. That being said, we’re focusing on the good today. Since he’s releasing a new film in the next few days, it feels apt to look at his best work. So, that’s what I’m doing. A full ranking of all of his movies is on the way, with special attention paid to his top features. I would argue that half of his output is good to very good, with five or six legitimately great works on his resume. This week, Reiner puts out his 20th feature, this time another political offering. It’s Shock and Awe, his treatise on the lies of the Bush Administration, namely in terms of going to war with Iraq. As per IMDb:

Morgan Freeman Says Sexual Misconduct Allegations Are Just "Misplaced Compliments or Humor"

Actor Morgan Freeman has been accused of sexual assault. A production assistant alleged that in 2015, while working on the set of Going In Style, the now 80-year-old subjected her to unwanted touching and comments about her body on a regular basis. He would allegedly rub her lower back and even attempted to take a peek under her skirt. She claimed he "kept trying to lift up my skirt and asking if I was wearing underwear." However, this was not an isolated incident. A senior staff member for the 2012 film Now You See Me told CNN that Freeman sexually harassed her and her female assistant on multiple occasions. "He did comment on our bodies... We knew that if he was coming by not to wear any top that would show our breasts, not to wear anything that would show our bottoms, meaning not wearing clothes that [were] fitted," she said. A total
