This movie basically tries to tell us that two wrongs make a right. Everybody involved, both men and women, need to look inward and wonder what they can do to make some positive improvements to their character.

No! Stay away! We have already sued the studio for taking away 1 1/2 hours of our lives. Don't even let your dog see this--we blind folded ours while we fast forwarded through it...All copies should be burned!

Liked Julia Stiles being in this and the narrative styles it took (i.e Molly Game (2017)/Annihilation (2018). I think I just don't feel much chemistry with these Jennifer Lopez types of movies. This is a bit better than Second Act (2019), but I think Anaconda (1997) was the best movie I think she acted in. Everything else just seems to feel flat when she's involved.

At the end of the movie just felt "whatever". Its feels too glossy and I didn't really feel into the characters the actresses were trying to portray, but just saw the actresses themselves more in some glossy movie like some silly Hollywood party with these A-list actresses having a girl's night out rather taking this movie itself seriously. Maybe, with the exception of Hailee Steinfeld, singers just don't make great actresses, specially the likes that make smutty music.

3 stars. At best, this is a cautionary tale for older (or rich) men at best. LOTS of T&A; if not rated R, it certainly should be. Although Jennifer Lopez's performance was good, we wouldn't rate it as Oscar-worthy (she apparently got a nomination). Lots of time was spent on the characters' performances, which got boring quickly. Would rather have seen a bit more time spent explaining better what happened at the end, as that seemed rushed and vague. Inspired by a story in NY Magazine a few years back. An OK movie but nothing to feel bad about if you miss it.

When you can turn the movie off part way through and debate with yourself on whether you want to even finish the movie, that speaks volumes on if this is a good movie or not. It did start out well, but just became boring and the ending... leaving you hanging about Jennifer Lopez and Constance Wu characters ever being reconciled! Nothing about this movie was Oscar performance worthy.

I agree with the general consensus: It started off well and quickly lost steam. And I can’t believe anyone thought Jennifer Lopez deserved an Oscar nom for the part. Yes, she looks amazing, but nothing about this movie was exceptional. We turned it off half way through.

First, I luv Jennifer Lozpez…. I seen her on Ellen with all her bruises from training for this film... and was so so excited to see all these women do what they had to do. Well first off she only did a pole routine for hmmmm 2 min... the movie I thought was so so boring.. Just was very disappointed in this film..... People are talking and upset Jen did not get nominated for an Oscar performance... GEEEEEEEEZ I wonder why she didn't …. Yes we all have difference in opinion... IT JUST PLAIN SUCKED!

A surprisingly good movie. Very well done, not degrading or trashy. Worth a watch. Opened my eyes and has made me think differently of people who are employed at exotic clubs. We're all human, and our decisions whether wise or otherwise are always influenced by our needs/wants. Also, Jennifer Lopez is unrecognizable in this movie - she's tough - not a trace of her previous quirky romcom characters. Same can be said of Constance Wu!

If you want to see a lot of T and A and pole dancing this is the movie for you. If you want a movie with more than a predictable and simple plot skip it, it is terrible.

****SPOILER ALERT****

Title cards at the end:
