Jennifer Lopez is making headlines these days for both the release of her new album, “This Is Me…Now” and the—movie? documentary? biopic?—that was released on Prime Video along with it, but not for good reasons. Fans are baffled by the film, which came out on Feb. 16th, and have taken to social media to ask what exactly the “musical, cinematic experience,” according to Prime Video, is actually about.

This Is Me…Now: A Love Story

“This Is Me…Now: A Love Story” released on Feb. 16th to Prime Video, and while some fans are intrigued by it, others are just plain confused. The main source of confusion is the genre—in that there doesn’t seem to be one. It could be an action movie, a rom-com, a comedy, or even a science-fiction flick.

While it’s clear that JLo’s love life is the glue holding it all together, we’re just not sure what “it all” is. A press release describes it as, “A narrative-driven, intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical and highly entertaining musical and visual reimagining of her publicly scrutinized love life,” and while that certainly uses a lot of descriptive adjectives, we’re still unclear what the *point* of the movie is.

Fans Are Not Impressed By New JLo Movie

JLo posted clips of This Is Me…Now: A Love Story to her Instagram account, where she sports over 250M followers. The posts have amassed thousands of comments from fans giving their thoughts on the movie, but unfortunately for the actress, fans aren’t very impressed. “I’m confused,” wrote one user.


“Anyone else confused as to what this is?” another person asked.

“This is JLo’s downfall,” said another user.

“What in the world in confusion is going on here Grl bye,” another fan said.

“With all due respect…what?!” a final fan said.

“JLo literally paid $20M to end her own career,” another person commented,

“This is creative narcissism,” another added.

“There’s no other way to say it: this is absolute cringe!” one person said.
