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
