Maid in Manhattan Reviews

Kit Bowen

Lopez doesn't do anything out of the ordinary. In fact, it looks like she may have simply cloned the same expressions she put on in her other successful romantic comedy, The Wedding Planner.

Not so much a movie as a collection of career moves.

Love may have been in the air onscreen, but I certainly wasn't feeling any of it.

Jeremy Heilman

As a romantic comedy it stands out amongst its peers. The critical attacks hurled on it, like those on its star, seem mostly unwarranted.

Dallas Observer

Comes not from a screenplay but from a handful of self-help books and fairy tales and fashion magazines cut and pasted together in a glossy montage committed to celluloid.

During a movie season filled with dark, heavy, and sometimes brilliant Oscar-bait, it's kind of nice to get an unassuming little picture that only wants to put a smile on your face.

Calculated fluff that hinges on a couple of gross miscalculations.

Dark Horizons

What's here will satisfy fans of the leads but without laughs and little romance -- this doesn't exactly fit the mold of solid entertainment in this genre.

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

'it's better to go in knowing full well what's going to happen, but willing to let the earnestness of its execution and skill of its cast take you down a familiar road with a few twists. Cynics need not apply.'

The film embraces the fantasy wherein the working class Latina might crash the world of wealthy white folks, bodaciously, on her own terms, and with some education to offer.

Each time the story threatens to stall, Wang turns the audience's attention to Lopez and Fiennes, a couple of enormously attractive actors who truly seem fascinated by each other.

Director Wayne Wang proves with Maid in Manhattan that even predictable movies can leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.

Maid in Manhattan handles well one of the most difficult components of the romantic comedy, the contrived Trial Separation.

Maid in Manhattan never pretends to be more than it is: a pretty movie about pretty people in pretty surroundings falling in love -- and on those terms, it's not a bad night at the movies.

Manhattan is nothing more than a trite Christmas present from Lopez. This film seemed to last longer than some of her relationships.

Problem is, there really isn't any dialogue here that suggests that Marisa is truly sassy, or charming, or candid, or that the would-be senator is either brilliant or senatorial, or that her accent-less son is not simply on loan from Hogwarts.

It's the sweet Cinderella story that "Pretty Woman" wanted to be.

The film works largely through its cannily assembled cast.

The car battery of romantic comedies: 'Carefully calibrated for maximum manipulative effect.'

Director Wayne Wang, stung no doubt by the poor reception given his NC-17 fit of boldness The Center of the World, tries to freshen up this stinker through confusion and implausibility.
