What to know

critics consensus

Too blandly generic, Maid in Manhattan also suffers from a lack of chemistry between Lopez and Fiennes. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Maid in Manhattan

  • Jan 03, 2013
    Actually not bad. There's no goofy, embarrassing hijinx like in other romantic comedies. The mistaken identity plot is played straight. The socioeconomic commentary is adequate for what is primarily a love story, and I like how Marisa's son gets to build a bond with his mother's suitor too. There is also no given that Chris and Marisa live happily ever after. The magazine covers in the credits say, "One year and still going strong." Nice touch, movie.

    I knew that I wouldn't like "Maid in Manhattan" from the start. Banal, loaded with schmaltz and a little uneven with its racially-themed message, it just isn't convincing or impressive in any aspect, which is somewhat justifiable when considering the kind of audience that it was designed for. Still, that's no excuse. Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes are an awkward-enough pairing to begin with, and they have very little chemistry with one another. "Maid in Manhattan" is annoying in how bland and uninspired it is, but then again, that's kind of a given.

    I really enjoyed this. Jennifer Lopez at her best and it's got quite a good storyline. A must see!
