Talented individuals labour over the contrivances in this lightweight romance, and if the result's fluff, at least it's painless.

When we catch ourselves sighing at the end, we get mad that we've fallen for this same old formula all over again. But mad in a nice way.

This piece of fluff is nothing more than a wanna-be "Pretty Woman." Pass, please.

Maid In Manhattan ultimately leaves nothing whatsoever for the viewer to grasp. . .leaving another dead carcass of Hollywood convention packed away and frozen for reheating by audiences who can find nothing else in the cupboard to eat.

Maid in Manhattan works because it's charming, and enjoyable.

The rags-to-riches plot should keep hopeless romantics happy, but you just can't help wondering what Hugh Grant, Sandra Bullock and a team of decent joke writers might have achieved with this one.

Funcionando (ainda que rasteiramente) como um romancezinho água-com-açúcar, Encontro de Amor pode até ser um passatempo inofensivo, mas certamente você encontrará opções melhores em sua locadora.

Director Wayne Wang coaxes such terrible performances from his cast it's difficult to tell who is most appalling.

Instead of a fairy tale, we have a tale told without imagination. It's Cinderella gone stale.
March 13, 2003
'Carente de imaginación, mal dirigida, peor actuada y sin un ápice de romance, es una verdadera pérdida de tiempo y dinero'

The story strikes a delicate balance between the Cinderella legend, where the charming prince rescues her from a dreary life, and the self-help notion of working to get a better job.

It's a condescending, totally unbelievable film made worse by poor dialogue, acting and directing, all strung together by a laughably cliched Cinderella story. .

An enchanting Cinderella story, Maid In Manhattan rises above the city skyscrapers to offer a delightful interlude for those who love happily-ever-after entertainment. A mix of Pretty Woman, You've Got Mail and Notting Hill, here's a film whose whole is m
