Maid in Manhattan


USA 2002, 101 minutes
Dir. Wayne Wang
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy / Romance


Aroview: A middling contemporary ‘Cinderella’ romance, based around the dubious onscreen chemistry of Ralph Fiennes and J-Lo.

When senatorial candidate Fiennes sees hotel maid Lopez trying on a rich guest’s clothes he falls in love with ‘her’ not realising the true situation, pursuing this illusion for much of the running time. Any mileage this age-old plot may hold is offset by J-Lo’s inability to convey a truly unglamorous side, as, say Meg Ryan can (and her glamorous side ain’t up to much either). However, a sleazy Stanley Tucci and various story twists, should add enjoyment for more than just fans of the leads.
