• Maid in Manhattan was a movie well worth paying 7.50 to see. Jennifer Lopez gives an excellent performance and Ralph Fiennes isn't bad either. Although I get the feeling that the writer has seen `Ever After' quit a few times, the film still has an originality and charm that is rare in the world of seemingly over-rushed movies that is Hollywood. A more than decent script is present and serious and humorous moments are well balanced; both the leading and supporting characters (esp. Tyler Posey, Natasha Richardson, Stanley Tucci, and Marissa Matrone)are well written and well presented by the actors playing them.

    I must recommend this film to anyone who is tired of seeing overrated movies deliver little in the way of enjoyment. All in all, it is a nice `breath of clean air.'
