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.

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.

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

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.

'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.'

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.

Clothing is a side dish to the main Hollywood fantasy menu of the film but it sets a darker tone to the fluff of the story.
