Great White, the band that plays at the party in this film, was involved in one of the most horrific disasters in the history of rock music - the Station Nightclub Fire in 2003, in Rhode Island, that killed 100 people (including guitarist Ty Longley) and injured 230 (132 escaped unhurt). The band's manager did prison time for his role in the event. At the time of the disaster the band was performing under the name Jack Russell's Great White. See more »

Cinderella in reverse -- a sweet romantic comedy with lots of heart.
Good movies just really are few and far between, and Maid to Order is one of the good ones -- although I wouldn't say it was funny ha-ha. It's one of those dreaded "romantic comedies" that male critics love to hate (including Janet Matlin, who tries to be more macho than her male counterparts). It's a "feel good" movie with a message, but it does make you feel good and its message is a good one. It is sweet and harmless and it has become one of my favorites -- there's just something very appealing about it.
Maid to Order has first-rate production values and a wonderful cast, not the least of whom is the late Dick Shawn, in an over-the-top role of a Hollywood record mogul married to Valerie Perrine. They stand out as not exactly your average married couple. Then again, they may BE average for Malibu.
The leads -- Ally Sheed and Michael Ontkean -- are charming and have a lot of chemistry together. The rest of the cast is equally good. It's not meant to be taken seriously and is perfect for a rainy afternoon.
