Watched a few minutes but so predictable.

Very light, which you'd expect from Jennifer Lopez. It was very predictable. I almost only watched only 2/3rds of it as I figured the ending would be exactly what it turned out to be when I decided to wade through the last third. Good movie for a mindless evening.

Was a fun watch, not boring, and well done. OK, so the whole premise is a bit far-fetched, but the message is terrific. Entertaining. There's really only one question that he writer said not answer. Don't want to give the end away, but, when Jennifer is asked at the end by her boyfriend about a family, her response was, "You are family." They did not answer that question for the male lead. Minor thing, tho'.

We really enjoyed this movie, full of great music, lots of upbeat action, and laced with sentimentality! Good clean script & a pleasure to watch Jennifer Lopez!
7 stars out of 10!

I usually love a Jennifer Lopez movie, so many good ones out there. But this movie did not give enough time to develop a scene. Movie did too many setups. I don't know if the editing or writing failed this movie. I was trying hard to like it, but hard to stay attached to so many scenes. All the characters were very likeable.

Search "famous people who lied on resume" and "believe me," you will find lists of "bigly" self proclaimed "extremely stable genius," politicians, authors, executives worldwide.** Also, the property of Gingko is based on real plausible science***, not on groundless premise. But the big but tired twist in the middle turns a decent comedy to spotty at best. The voluptuous J Lo (49 years old already?) fans should love it.

**Many examples detailed in the 2017 book "Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News by Kevin Young.

***Two key elements on Gingko trees (see links in summary.)

Well, it was sweet and positive, but that comes at a cost. The story is built on coincidence and the types of dialogue that can only be dreamt up by screenwriters. But with so many lousy movies out there, this one at least had some fun and poignant (if not authentic) moments --so that's something.

A spontaneous birthday wish gives Maya the do-over of a lifetime and reminds everyone that each new day brings a new second chance.

Overall a cute film, the strong language seems unnecessary, more for shock value than plot. Great for a one time viewing.
