From her humble beginnings as a Fly Girl on IN LIVING COLOR to her chart-topping success as a pop star and an acting career showcasing her surprisingly versatile talent, Jennifer Lopez has proven that Jenny From the Block can totally do it all. Whether she’s belting out ballads as a beloved songstress, hunting a terrifying snake, or going toe-to-toe with Hollywood legends, Lopez has given us some truly memorable performances over the course of her almost 30-year career.

Lopez’s new movie, MARRY ME features her in a role very similar to real-life, as musical superstar Kat Valdez. Packed with original songs by JLo, herself and global Latin music star Maluma, MARRY ME arrives Valentine’s Day weekend with Lopez starring alongside Owen Wilson as Charlie Gilbert, a math teacher—total strangers who agree to marry and then get to know each other. An unlikely romance about two different people searching for something real in a world where value is based on likes and followers, MARRY ME is a modern love story about celebrity, marriage and social media.

Before you plan your date night at AMC Theatres this Valentine’s Day, we have selected five of her best roles for you to watch at AMC Theatres On Demand.

HUSTLERS

In 2019, Jennifer Lopez took the big screen by storm as Ramona, the mysterious leader of a crew of strippers set out to steal and hustle their way to riches in HUSTLERS. Inspired by the fascinating true story described in the widely-read New York Magazine article, “The Hustlers at Scores.” Set against the backdrop of a post-recession America, the crew stick it to the New York hedge fund managers who prospered while bankrupting mainstream America ultimately getting in deeper than they intended in this dark comedy filled with dramatic twists and turns.

SELENA

After kicking it with the Fly Girls on IN LIVING COLOR, Jennifer Lopez landed a handful of supporting roles in movies like JACK, and MONEY TRAIN. Her role as a late, great music icon, however, made her a legitimate star. In 1997’s SELENA, Lopez played Selena Quintanilla-Perez, one of the most celebrated and influential Mexican-American entertainers in modern history. SELENA followed the singer’s rise in the Latin music scene, her crossover into mainstream American pop music, and her tragic death at the age of 23. Although Lopez is of Puerto Rican descent, she felt a personal connection to the story of an American-born Latina whose star was on the rise – and it shows in her fantastic breakout performance.
