Jennifer Lopez, Second Act

STX Entertainment

Jennifer Lopez is back on the big screen and we are so grateful that she is.

Luckily for fans of the New York City native, Lopez has been in the spotlight for decades and she hasn't left it at all. She has however been spending more time on her music lately and her TV career with Shades of Blue and her cameo on Will & Grace in 2018.

Now, the singer and actress is back in theaters with her newest rom-com, Second Act, which hits theaters today (Dec. 21). The last time Lopez was in a feature film—that she wasn't voicing an animated character for—was in 2015.

The last time she was in a rom-com was back in 2012, so clearly fans have been waiting a long time for this new movie and we're already loving Lopez as Maya, the former big box store worker turned Manhattan businesswoman using only her street smarts and an exaggerated resume.

What we might love even more however, is that the release of Second Act has reminded us of all of the other big roles Lopez has had in the film industry throughout her career.

From Selena and Enough to The Wedding Planner and What to Expect When You're Expecting, Lopez has had a lot of movie success.

So much so, that we rounded up her top films below for you to reminisce about either before, or after, you head to theaters to see her latest box office release.

Then, all you have to do is vote for your all-time favorite Lopez role below, because we really can't pick the No.1 film in the 49-year-old singer's catalog. 

What are you waiting for? It's time to vote and then go see Second Act starring Lopez, Milo Ventimiglia, Vanessa Hudgens and Leah Remini ASAP.
