Synopsis

An unplanned pregnancy in her youth, along with the decision to give the baby up for adoption, continues to haunt Maya (Jennifer Lopez). For this we go to a romcom? What happened to the cute setup? Comic-relief Joan (Leah Remini) gooses Maya’s resume and social media profile so that her BFF can make the leap from a “street smarts” job managing a big box store to a “book smarts” career at a high profile consumer goods company. Once installed in her Madison Avenue digs, everything that could have gone wrong should have, and with each passing debacle, Maya would have escaped triumphant. Have the kids curse to wring a few more cheap laughs. Add another impromptu musical number where the gals lip sync more of Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It”. Anything but adoption as a wormy plot device to bring characters together. Remini’s the show. If director Peter Segal really had his sights set on romantic comedy, the final fade would have been of Lopez and Remini falling into each other’s arms.
