Fortune Magazine ranked Jennifer Lopez one of the top twenty richest Americans under the age of forty. She is also one terrific actress, because she played a very believable maid in a Manhatten hotel. Combined with the excellent acting, the John Hughes script kept the story moving at a good pace right from the word go.
Your feeling about this movie may depend on your own personal experiences. I was lucky enough to fall in love at first sight 36 years ago and have been in love with the same person ever since, so I believe that fairytale romances can happen. To me, watching "Maid In Manhatten" was a like reliving the thrill of a great romance all over again.
Jennifer Lopez's 10 year old son in the movie helped to make the story all the more believable and increased the viewers sympathy for his hard working mother. Some people did not like this movie because the end seemed predictable. So what! The journey to the end was a very enjoyable ride. 8 out of 10.
