An entertaining movie
20 January 2019 | by kittypryde_shadowcatSee all my reviews

J.Lo did an amazing work with this movie. It is nice to see actresses like her again on the big screen. It is the kind of romantic comedy that was popular in the early 2000s. I think people will enjoy this movie. However, it is possible to relate this movie with other J. Lo movies because it has a similar storyline. I would suggest the audience to ignore the similarities and focus in the storyline because it explores common circumstances in a funny and enjoyable way. I surely recommend this movie to everyone.
