Trivia

While Maya and Zoe are looking around the apartment and they look at the photos around the place. Maya later finds out they are Zoe's. The real artist is actually Lee Jeffries. See more »

Goofs

When in London, it is implied that Zoe is on a number 24 bus. The view from the bus windows is Whitehall (correct), but then changes to the Natural History Museum - which is quite opposite to the 24 bus route. See more »

Quotes

Maya: Everyday you wake up and have a second chance to do whatever you want, to be whoever you want. The only thing stopping you is you.

How The Heck This Movie Could Get 10 Rating !!
13 January 2019 | by ymyusedaSee all my reviews

Rating 6.0/10 It is watchable, but the performance of Jennifer Lopez is poor. I don't understand why they rate it 10 ! Are they all paid critics ? What's the point in rating if it is fake ! So disappointing !
