Jennifer Lopez Returns to the Rom-Com Genre

New mom-of-twins Jennifer Lopez is heading back to work in front of the cameras soon for yet another romantic comedy. Titled The Governess, the movie "centers on a professional thief who, in order to pull off a major bank heist, poses as a nanny to the three unruly children of a wealthy widower. When she starts to fall for the kids and their father, she must decide if she can give up her past for a chance to start over."

I wonder. . . will she be able to give up her past for the wealth widower and the three scamps she's come to love?!

Tell me: Do you think Jennifer Lopez is good at the romantic comedy thing? Do you like her performances in Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner? Might this be a cute film?

Sounds interesting, albeit predictable. I'd definitely go and watch. I love practically all her movies. They are the "sit back, relax and just enjoy" sort of movies. Just the thing I need after a whole week of stress at the office.

i love Romantic comedies, but the storyline seems very similar to her older movies, I would probably wait for it on DVD

FoxyJo, Selena is my favorite Jennifer Lopez movie of all time!!! I like Jennifer Lopez as an actress. Her movies are actually pretty decent. Shes a way better actress than she is a singer. So I don't mind seeing her movies. I probably won't pay to go see it in the theater, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it once it makes its way to DVD or on TV.

"I wonder. . . will she be able to give up her past for the wealth widower and the three scamps she's come to love?!" Um... all signs point to yes. Romantic comedies are tired and predictable.

I think Jennifer Lopez should stick to dancing. She is really a brilliant dancer but singing and acting, not so much. I damire the fact that she has carved out a place for herself but other than that I just can't help wishing her 15 minutes were up

She's never been an actress that I enjoy. Even though the film doesn't sound too bad, it and she are way too predictable.

I don't really care for her movies... not enough to pay to see them anyway, but they are enjoyable to watch late at night on cable.

Maid in Manhattan was only so-so, but The Wedding Planner is one of my favorite romantic comedies (along with Sweet Home Alabama). I'll probably go see the new one.

Wow that storyline sounds really familiar. Its almost like The Sound of Music with the addition of the jewel thief storyline and minus about four kids and minus any singing talent on J.Lo's part. I liked her in The Wedding Planner, but Maid in Manhattan was dreadful.

Oh, for God's sake. I can't believe she hasn't given up yet. I had to watch Monster-In-Law a couple of weeks ago (they were playing it in the waiting room of my doctor's office), and she was just dreadful. Not even Michael Vartan could save that movie. Ugh.
