Lopez gets a couple of amusing lines, and theoretically is here to provide some comic relief as the wide-eyed fish out of water. (An underused Patti LuPone classes things up a bit as her sassy Latina mama.) But playing weak and girlish isn't exactly Lopez's strong suit, and she never functions as a potential romantic interest for Parker because it's been well-established that he's in love with Claire (Emma Booth), the daughter of his grizzled mentor (Nick Nolte), who is well aware of the dangers of the life he's chosen and sticks by him nonetheless.
So basically, we're just here to ogle J.Lo's world-famous derriere as she turns around slowly in a polka-dot bra and panty set. It is also a popular tourist destination.
