Audience Reviews for Maid to Order

I really liked this movie, Sheedy plays a rich girl who's life is turned around and she must be the maid instead. This movie is funny and I really liked it.

Aj V

Super Reviewer

This modern retelling of the Cinderella fable isn't much of a star vehicle for Ally Sheedy, who's constantly upstaged by the supporting players.

Dean McKenna

Super Reviewer

not a big sheedy fan but she's good here with a great supporting cast
