Our review of Blu-ray exclusives:
- Connecting with Milo Ventimiglia: In this exclusive, we get to hear from Lopez that she only envisioned one person to play Trey. I bet you can guess who that was: Milo Ventimiglia. Don’t you love when a lead just knows who they want their love interest to be, and bam? They play that role. Ventimiglia tells viewers that Lopez is serious about her work, but she also lets loose, too. The perfect chemistry!
- The Empowering Women of Second Act: Here at Hollywood News Source, we are SO here for female empowerment. And it seems like the cast of the film is as well. It’s always refreshing to see women raising each other up. Between Lopez, Hudgens and Remini, they all had such great things to say about one another. I think Hudgen’s description of Lopez was the best — she described her as a “unicorn.” As far as I am concerned, being referred to as a unicorn is the highest of honors. We should all empower one another and call one another unicorns. Let’s make that happen!
- Friendship On and Off Screen: It’s revealed through this exclusive that Lopez and Remini are actually friends in real life. The producer and director give viewers intel of how their friendship relays from real life to onscreen. That’s always such a cool thing when you’re watching a movie to know that the stars of the film blend so well together and are friends outside of work. I think we can all agree that having work friends who are also your friends outside of work is the best thing ever.
- Working with the Ones You Love: This gives viewers a quick glimpse into the behind-the-scenes of everyone working together on the film. Just from that glimpse, it seems like the cast had a fun time working on the movie and were really passionate about the movie.
Overall, this product is a great buy! The film itself is the perfect classic rom com, it comes in a super convenient combo pack (DVD + Blu-ray + Digital), and the exclusives included are a fun watch. If you’re feeling some laughs and female empowerments, then pick up this movie right away. Seriously though, go out and buy it TODAY. Plus, the cast is amazing on this film.
