Why J-Lo’s latest film is the perfect antidote to the winter blues (and how to get tickets for FREE)

Promotional feature with Second Act

Few things are better than a night out with the girls spent laughing until your sides hurt, right?

With the January blues well and truly upon us, there’s no better time to head to the box office and book seats for a dose of comedy.

Think of your favourite feel good films from the nineties and noughties – Maid in Manhattan, The Wedding Planner, Shall We Dance? – and you’ll notice a lot of them have one thing in common: Jennifer Lopez. So with J-Lo heading up the cast of new comedy Second Act, you can be sure it’s just the ticket to get over Blue Monday (see what we did there?)

But don’t be fooled that this is just another rom-com. The emphasis here feels much more on the importance of great, supportive female friendships rather than romance – the perfect balance of smashing the glass ceiling and having a lot of lols in the process, with a side order of sass. Also the wardrobes are really, really great.

J-Lo is supported in the lead role by Vanessa Hudgens, who recently showed off her comedic abilities in Netflix’s The Princess Switch, and Milo Ventimiglia, who we all know and love from Gilmore Girls and, more recently, This Is Us.
