Expected nakedly capitalist Lean In Feminism but instead got weird feminine self-loathing pro-life agitprop + WRETCHEDEST IDEOLOGICAL NUGGET EVER: .. after US bombing of Hiroshima (~150k deaths).. gingko trees survived.. a factoid which JLo recalls.. leading gingko leaves to become.. the secret ingredient in an organic lotion.. that JLo's developing for.. a consumer goods megacorp.. ?! .. Hated everything about this.
What's more disappointing than the fact that the effervescent Jennifer Lopez is again saddled with a B-rate script in "Second Act" is how quickly the movie ditches its promising themes for implausible shenanigans and plot contrivances. Instead of embracing a story about a society that looks down on those who lack higher education, we must endure a millennial update of "Working Girl," which is far less compelling.
