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 »

Ally Sheedy works very hard to convince us she's a spoiled rich girl who takes everyone for granted. I felt it was all a con, and therefore couldn't wait for her character to make that transformation into a Better Person. Sheedy wasn't necessarily miscast as she was misdirected; she naturally projects a very savvy, efficient persona, and acting childish is beneath her. The second part of the film, with Sheedy working as a maid to wealthy neurotics Dick Shawn and Valerie Perrine (both terrific), is more successful, and the fantasy elements of the plot have had time to grow on us and are more acceptable. There are still some clumsy or awkward moments here, however for the first time Michael Ontkean is a CHARMING Prince Charming (not just a substitute for one) and the supporting cast is made up of wily and likable characters. "Maid to Order" leaves you smiling and that means it has done a good job, though it takes at least thirty minutes to kick into gear. *** from ****
