The Art Of racing In The Rain is a new Simon Curtis directed comedy / drama starring Milo Ventimiglia, Kevin Costner and Amanda Seyfried.
Costner lends his voice to a golden retriever named Enzo as he recalls the life lessons he’s learned from his race car driving owner, Denny…
A part of me half-seriously suspects that this movie was made to make more people into dog owners. For me, perhaps one day but I’m really watching for two reasons which are Ventimiglia and the fact that Kevin Costner has lent his rather pleasant voice to represent this very gorgeous canine.
Gary Cole, Kathy Baker, Al Sapienza, Martin Donovan, Karen Holness and also star.
Set in New York City (of course!) and directed by Peter Segal, Second Act is about an underestimated retail worker who reinvents her life and her life-story, leading to her finally landing her dream job and more.
Even though Second Act is similar to the other Lopez romance / comedies mentioned – in a few ways, there’s still a difference or two that I didn’t see coming. Generally, I enjoyed the humour and watching the dynamic between the three main female characters. The fact that Leah Remini and Lopez happen to be close friends in real life somehow only added to my experience of this movie.
Other personal highlights include the way Lopez and Vanessa Hudgens were styled, the New York City setting plus the wise and very accurate wisdom shared at the very end.
Watch Second Act especially if you like Lopez and the two Lopez movies mentioned. Segal’s film is definitely a little different in a good way; and who knows, perhaps you may even prefer it. Maid In Manhattan and The Wedding Planner remains my favourites.
Jennifer Lopez, Milo Ventimiglia, Vanessa Hudgens and Leah Remini are the stars of new romance / comedy Second Act.
Directed by Peter Segal, Lopez plays a retail worker who reinvents her life / life-story and shows Madison Avenue what street smarts can do…
Two of my favourite romantic comedies (The wedding Planner (2001) and Maid In Manhattan (2(002) star Jennifer Lopez. Hopefully this will be another favourite to add to the list, regardless of the obvious similarities to the maid In Manahattan story.
Charlyne Yi, Freddie Stroma and Treat Williams also star.
