    This movie already sounds boring. First Viola played the mother of a little girl who’s kidnapped in Prisoners, with Hugh Jackman, Terrence Howard & Jake Gyllenhall, before that she’s playing a mother who teams up with another mother, Maggie Gyllenhall in some movie about taking back the schools, and now she plays another mother who has a kid who gets killed. With Jennifer Lopez of all people.

    @Livin’ The Life:

    I was going to post the exact same thing. such a shame that she is being offered the same kinds of roles. Just shows how Hollywood just can’ embrace minority actors in diverse roles. She is talented. Jennifer Lopez’ last film with Jason Statham only made 46 million WW. Not good.

    just shows that an Oscar win means squat. She should be doing better roles with better actors.

    @gia74: Viola didn’t win the Oscar, Meryl Streep did.

    what??? Says:

    How the hell did this pairing happen? Viola is an excellent actress she has to stoop so low to work with JLo for a check?? Man, that is not good at all. The one thing this pairing will do is show everyone what horrible actor Lopez really is. Her only semi decent role was Selena.

    Mary Anne Says:

    Viola is one of the best actors around, I really hope she is not the second lead to Lopez. Hell she was even way too good for playing the help in that stereotypical ****** movie the academy voters thought deserved a nomination as best picture. Steve MCQueen, how about Viola as the lead actress in your next movie, where she is not a maid or a slave!

    jess Says:

    What’s with the beautiful manicured fingernails and those shoes??? – not suitable for the part. As for pairing with the great Viola, I say, Viola, what were you thinking???!!!!

    You guys did know right that jlo auditioned for this movie so dont be so negative just because it’s Jlo so calm down you guys she might be doing cheesy rom com scripts but shes actually a great actress she just chose those slapstick romcoms hello have you guys seen her movies like selena, out of sight, the cell ,el cantante, bordertown, unfinished life..

    Livin' The Life Says:

    Fair@#12 you’re right. If JLo auditioned then she must have done a decent job. I saw El Cantante and she was very good in it.
    It’s just that I have an image of Viola as a serious actress, which she is, and with JLo I have the whole “American Idol” thing and the silly romantic comedy stuff. I enjoy JLo in movies like Wedding Planner. It’s no disrespect to JLo but I just don’t put them in the same class. And I still think the subject is boring.

    She Stinks! Says:

    Another bomb and bad review for JHO Bag. I wonder if she will get nominated for a razzie for this? Poor Viola, having to work with this untalented trash with zero acting talent. JHO bag is all flash and no substance, a typical HO.

    Rainman Says:

    You guys need to stop seriously, this is a drama film and im sure Jennifer would do excellent! she was amazing in Selena i cant wait to see the chemistry these two has. I think Jennifer has come a long way and i hope this is her chance for an Oscar nomination.

    @Livin’ The Life:

    God help us! Viola is amazing actress and they pair her with JLo? Viola must have needed the money.

    Rocky Says:

    @Rainman:

    One movie doesn’t make for a great actress. There wasn’t that much drama to be had in that movie. Why do producers/directors continue to put Kate Hudson, Jennifer Aniston and JLo in movies? These roles are roles that ‘good’ actors turned down.

    @fair

    Jlo used t o a great actress.She was a force to be reckoned with until she got greedy and took any project that made money.
    El cantante was garbage! It made GiGli look like an Oscar nominee.Marc Anthony as junkie was a big leap like he isn’t that in real life.Until she takes acting seriously and dumps her boy toy.She’s lways going to be a laughing stock

    @lupe:
    Lopez was never a great actress, she showed some promise when she started but never worked on her craft, she just went for the easy money with romcoms. As for El Cantante, the movie was good and Marc Anthony was the best part in the movie. He was perfectly cast as the legendary Hector Lavoe, I can’t imagine anyone else playing that part. Hector died in 1993 and that was the year Marc released his first salsa album, the rest is history!

    Gia, I think Viola probably loves the script since she is executive producing it. Im just saying..

    @what???:

    Your comment just doesn’t compute. Lopez has worked with Penn, Clooney, Nicholson, Redford, Fonda, Voight, Nolte, Fiennes and now Viola Davis, who is producing the film. As usual, the posse of J-Lo haters comes out, all garbed out in green envy, who have seen few or none of her films. El Cantante did horrible at the box office — as it was expected to since it was a Latino film. Was more a labor of love. Was it a good movie ? Not really. Too heavy on the salsa. But J-Lo was pretty damn good in it — a different kind of role for her.
