Her talent was real. Her resume was not.
Dream Big.
Pete Segal while addressing the cast and crew upon completion of principal photography, said that the cast and crew of Second Act was his "favourite family" of everyone he's worked with.

Originally, Julia Roberts was attached to the role played by Jennifer Lopez.

The filming for the film began in New York on Monday, October 23, 2017.

The hard-discount store where Maya works were filmed in a Queens Food Bazaar, a 24-hour shop that was not closed for filming.

Food Bazaar Supermarket in Long Island City, New York, was used for location filming and remained open for three days while filming in October 2017.

The writers of Second Act asked Pete Segal to tweak the script's comedic aspects.
