"If you made different choices, would you be happier?" These Second Act quotes provide a great look into this hilarious and perhaps inspiring rom-com. Following a woman who's given a second chance to fulfill her career goals, Second Act offers humor, drama, and so much more. Peter Segal directed the film with a screenplay written by Justin Zackham and Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, and the film opened theatrically on December 14, 2018. 

In Second Act, Maya (Jennifer Lopez) is a middle-aged woman who has career ambitions, but is stuck at a dead-end, low paying job. While venting to her friend, Joan (Leah Remini), Joan's son over hears and creates a fake "professional" social network profile for Maya. Maya is given a new chance at life when a private finance firm finds her fake online persona and wants to hire her as a consultant for a major business deal.
