(2018) (Jennifer Lopez, Vanessa Hudgens) (PG-13)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Dramedy: A woman continues to live a lie she didn't create in order to keep her dream job, all while contending with a revelation about one of her coworkers.
- Maya Vargas (JENNIFER LOPEZ) has worked the past six years as the assistant manager at a big box store and knows everything about the products they sell and related sales patterns. Yet she's passed over for a promotion due to being a woman and only having a GED for her education. To make matters worse, her live-in boyfriend, Trey (MILO VENTIMIGLIA), has just dumped her since she doesn't want to have kids.
Accordingly, she moves in with her best friend, Joan (LEAH REMINI), and contemplates her next job option. That seems to fall in her lap when she gets an interview with a top Manhattan consumer goods firm where the CEO, Anderson Clarke (TREAT WILLIAMS), is impressed by her education and work and volunteer experience.
She realizes something is amiss but doesn't mention it's wrong (even when she later learns Joan's teenage son created a fake but impressive education/business/volunteer profile for her)and thus is given a job as a consultant due to knowing her stuff about the industry. That's much to the chagrin of one of the vice presidents there, Zoe (VANESSA HUDGENS), who just so happens to be Anderson's daughter. She and another executive there, Ron (FREDDIE STROMA), who questions Maya's credentials, end up competing against Maya in turning a product line around.
While Zoe and Ron plan to simply retool an existing product line and make it slightly more organic, Maya and her new team -- that consists of reluctant Hildy (ANNALEIGH ASHFORD), nerdy acrophobe Ariana (CHARLYNE YI) and third-string chemist Chase (ALAN AISENBERG) -- opt to make something that's completely organic. As they do so, Maya is startled by a revelation about one of her coworkers, all as she continues living her business lie where the truth might be discovered at any moment.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they're fans of anyone in the cast they might want to.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
- For some crude sexual references, and language.
