Storyline

Marisa Ventura is a single mother born and bred in the boroughs of New York City, who works as a maid in a first-class Manhattan hotel. By a twist of fate and mistaken identity, Marisa meets Christopher Marshall, a handsome heir to a political dynasty, who believes that she is a guest at the hotel. Fate steps in and throws the unlikely pair together for one night. When Marisa's true identity is revealed, the two find that they are worlds apart, even though the distance separating them is just a subway ride between Manhattan and the Bronx. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

John Hughes was originally set to direct from his own screenplay, titled "The Chambermaid", with Hilary Swank as the lead. In January 2001, the Dallas Morning News reported that Hughes would produce only, with a start date of March 2001. Al Cohn of the Illinois Film Office was hired as Location Manager for the shoot. By July, Variety was reporting that Hughes and Swank were out, and Jennifer Lopez was in negotiations for the lead. Wayne Wang was hired as Director in October 2001, with a new screenplay by Kevin Wade, which updated the story from the 1920s. Sandra Bullock had expressed interest in the lead at one point, and Julia Roberts passed on the script early on. See more »

Well, I liked it!
9 October 2007 | by MusicalMagpieSee all my reviews

So many people have already written reviews of this movie, which has been out for five years now, that I am not going to go into detail about the plot, or the acting, or whether the storyline is predictable, or how cute Ty Posey was. I am merely going to say that I watched it tonight for the first time with my 13-year old daughter and we both enjoyed it immensely. I found Jennifer Lopez a bit stiff in places, but overall she handled the role well. I do not understand why so many people had problems with Ralph Finnes in this movie, I found him not only believable but incredibly sexy, and I hope he gets the opportunity to do more romantic comedies! Bob Hoskins stole every scene he was in. Stanley Tucci chewed scenery. Natasha Richardson was suitably selfish and blonde. New York was lovely. The dog overacted shamelessly. The movie was not perfect, but it was delightful. The only wrong note was the series of magazine covers at the end, showing what happened to the characters; it was much too "cute" and rather unbelievable (all three of her maid friends become hotel managers?) And I was rather disappointed that - for all the film's brave talk of crossing social barriers - the movie ends with nothing more than a magazine cover with the headline "A year later, they are still together". I felt cheated.
