Very entertaining and enjoyable film

Jennifer Lopez plays the role of a maid named Marisa Ventura in one of New York City's greatest hotels and is loved by all of her co-workers, both male and female.
A very polished butler took her under his so-called wing and guided her into a manager's position, which she was very well qualified to fill. Marisa is persuaded to put on a very expensive outfit and becomes involved with a very ... read more

I'm surprised the rating is so low for this movie. I have come to understand that too many people believe Jennifer Lopez cannot act, but I disagree. Her role in this movie proves she has the ability and a damn good one at that. The love story is just beautiful, every romance should be like this.

Not terrible, not great

'Maid in Manhattan' received generally terrible reviews, and it's certainly no great cinematic treasure. Indeed, the movie is clichéd, contrived, and predictable. Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes don't have a lot of chemistry, and (while not the brattiest I've seen) naturally Lopez's character's young son comes off as a little too "cute" and overly precocious.

All of that said -- I... read more

Description: Marisa Ventura (Lopez) 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 (Fiennes), a handsome heir to a political dynasty, who believes that she is a guest at the hotel. Fate steps in and ...

An average movie

“Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but I still ended up watching it. I mean, right from the start, it sounded like a rather odd project. I mean, who thought it would be a good idea to make a romantic-comedy with Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes? Concerning Ralph Fiennes, he is probably one of the best actors of his generation and even though he has done pretty much everything in his career, this genre is probably the only one he hasn’t mastered so far. Concerning Jennifer Lopez, she has a pretty lousy reputation as an actress but I don’t think she is so bad. Unfortunately, she always picks up such bland projects like this one and if she ever wants us to take her seriously as an actress she will really have to take some risks at some point but I don’t see it happenin” read more

"Pros: Passed the time; not a masterpiece but not as terrible as the overall negative reviews imply (and not any worse than a lot of similar movies that received far better reviews); Ralph Fiennes was fairly likable (not necessarily an easy feat for a role that lacked any significant depth or characterization); I enjoyed the New York City setting. Cons: "J. Lo" wasn't a very appealing lead; her character's son was (not surprisingly) a little too "precocious"; while the movie's a smidge better th"

“Maid In Manhattan is a typical romantic comedy, with the fairy tale ending. Like most RomCom's they are not the best of stories, but they are enjoyable. Maid In Manhattan for me was enjoyable, I actually liked it a lot. Not a lot of people are into Romantic Comedies, but if you are than this movie you will enjoy.” read more

All of that said -- I didn't think this was THAT bad of a movie. I didn't love it (by any stretch) but I didn't think it was any worse than, or different from, most other romantic comedies out there. (Including many well-reviewed "rom-coms.") Lopez neither charmed nor irritated me (well, not too much -- I did roll my eyes a few times). As for Fiennes, for what little personality his character displayed, I actually found hi” read more

Very entertaining and enjoyable film

“Jennifer Lopez plays the role of a maid named Marisa Ventura in one of New York City's greatest hotels and is loved by all of her co-workers, both male and female.

A very polished butler took her under his so-called wing and guided her into a manager's position, which she was very well qualified to fill. Marisa is persuaded to put on a very expensive outfit and becomes involved with a very well known politician running for the US senate, Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes).

Christopher takes one look at Marisa and falls completely in love with her. We have seen movies like this over and over again with literally the same story; however I do believe that J.Lo acted well and looked stunning in the movie.” read more
