Jennifer Lopez’s Really Bad Year: New Netflix Movie A Critical Disaster with 9% Rating After Album, Video Flop


Either Jennifer Lopez is in total denial, or she doesn’t care.

JLo is having a very bad year, that’s for sure.

First of all, it does seem that her marriage to Ben Affleck is in trouble after less than two years.

Now comes her new film, “Atlas,” on Netflix. Apparently it’s unwatchable. The Rotten Tomatoes rating is 10%. That may be the lowest ever for her.

Just a couple of months ago, Lopez released a new album called “This is Me…Now,” which was dead on arrival. A longform video went with it, called “The Greatest Romance Never Told,” and is also flopped like a sea lion at the Central Park Zoo.

“Atlas” is futuristic, I guess, and has something to do with artificial intelligence. How about some genuine intelligence? JLo should send up an SOS soon before all hope is lost.
