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

Ralph stoops to the challenge
21 July 2003 | by harry_tk_yungSee all my reviews

Seen in a flight, Maid in Manhattan was a movie that didn't attract me to the cinema, more because of the competition at the time than anything else. Despite the fact that I didn't give it the level of attention I would normally give in a cinema or even at home for obvious reasons, I found it quite enjoyable. While you can't quite compare the Cinderella element to Pretty Woman, or the mother-son drama to About A boy, or the `big night' excitement to My Fair Lady, M in M has an easy flow which makes it very easy to watch. It's the first time I watched Jennifer Lopez and what I found was that she is not as bad as many of the criticisms would have you believe. Ralph Fiennes stooped to (as opposed of rose to) the challenge and gave the role a good shot. The one that is really wasted was Stanley Tucci. As to the script, there's one line that particularly caught my fancy, when the boy asks Lopez if she thinks Fiennes will miss them. `He's crazy not to', she replies, a nice blend of confidence, sweetness and honesty
