It's Christmas in New York and there's no snow, no barren trees, no chill. When they pan the lower east side and down to Maya (Jennifer Lopez) on the park bench, all the trees are in full bloom with green leaves on them. Winter in New York would have all the trees leaf-less (deciduous trees) and it would be below freezing. Maya is sitting comfortably with one Lycra layer on. See more »

I only went to see this because my wife is a huge J Love fan. To my surprise and delight, the movie is really well done. The heartwarming parts work well, and the comedy is laugh out loud funny. J Love is luminous throughout the film, and this is really a film where she shines. The inspired casting of Leah Remini as her best friend ( who nearly steals the film along with Dierdre Friel and Lacretta as J Lo's co workers) really uses the chemistry they have as friends in real life. There is a twist to the plot which I will not reveal. Beautifully shot, great use of NY as a backdrop and a great supporting cast with not a false note in the bunch. It held my attention, and that's saying something as well. I hope to see Leah Remini get some more films after this, because she makes a great sidekick. I loved it.
