User ReviewsReview this title
Surprisingly, this movie has some drama as well and some people might even shed a tear, but it's quite a beaufiful life story.
There are a few movie cliches, for example like she decided to tell the truth when everyone was watching live, instead of doing her job and representing the company. That cliche is quite popular and her decision didn't look smart, but then again, it's not like she finished Harvard lol.
Also after watching this movie it kind of made me realize that looks do help in life (which is obvious, but still), especially for the first impression. Jennifer Lopez is sometimes average and sometimes beautiful and clothes and hair play a huge role on how you look, so it does help to take some time and do some shopping once in a while to look good, since both men and women notice if you look good and you will get better things. That's just how life is.
On overall I don't feel like my time was wasted and the movie is quite good, so I'd recommend it to my friends, even to watch together again.
I enjoy the trope of a normal person faking it in high society/business and succeeding so that's the main reason I came to this movie. But what was great about this movie is that it tweaked some of the usual cliches in just the right way to make the movie feel fresh and interesting.
I loved that the primary emotional journey was not about a romantic relationship. Leah Remini was a fricken delight. I enjoyed all the performances and how the plot resolved. I will be getting this on video too, it's worth rewatching.
I really liked seeing a woman older than 30 having this kind of story. It felt good.
The theme was female empowerment and overcoming class restrictions, but it had a lot of funny lines that had the audience laughing. Definitely worth the time and money.
The Directing: The "twist" in this movie could make it more dramatic. Because that should be the highlight scene to touch audiences hearts. Unfortunately, they didn't really spend too much scene to setup the "surprise" so it didn't have the smooth flow in the script.
