The film is the story of Maya (Lopez), a 40-year-old woman struggling with frustrations stemming from her unfulfilled dreams. Until she gets the chance to prove to Madison Avenue, Manhattan’s Advertising Industry center, that street smarts are as valuable as a college degree, and that it is never too late for a second chance. But in the midst of her career’s continuing success, she wants to come clean with something, risking everything she has built up to now.

Also starring in the movie is Vanessa Hudgens (High School Musical, Netflix’s The Princess Switch) as Zoe, Maya’s officemate who idolizes her. Milo Ventimiglia (Creed II, Heroes) as Trey, Maya’s husband who always encourages her to believe in herself more, and Leah Remini (CBS’ The King of Queens) as Joan, Maya’s ever-supportive best friend.

Second Act is full of quick, witty comic lines that will tickle your funny bone and heartwarming moments that will touch your heart, some of Director Peter Segal’s (50 First Dates, Get Smart) film trademarks. 

The movie is pumped up with great music such as the ageless hits “Dreams” by The Cranberries, “Push It” by Salt-n-Pepa and the original song “Limitless” which was composed by Sia and performed by none other than Jennifer Lopez.

Presented by VIVA International Pictures, Second Act is screening now at cinemas nationwide.
