Plot Summary

Marisa Ventura (Jennifer Lopez) is a struggling single mom who works at a posh Manhattan hotel and dreams of a better life for her and her young son (Tyler Posey). One fateful day, hotel guest and senatorial candidate Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes) meets Marisa and mistakes her for a wealthy socialite. After an enchanting evening together, the two fall madly in love. But when Marisa's true identity is revealed, issues of class and social status threaten to separate them. Can two people from very different worlds overcome their differences and live happily ever after? From acclaimed director Wayne Wang (Anywhere But Here) and co-starring Natasha Richardson, Stanley Tucci and Bob Hoskins, MAID IN MANHATTAN is "Romantic! Funny! Uplifting!" (Neil Rosen, NY1).

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Not so much a movie as a collection of career moves. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: 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. – Laura Sinagra, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The movie would almost qualify as pleasant, were it not for a certain condescension in its treatment of working-class life and its offhand assumption that lives not buoyed by riches or aggrandized by fame are hardly worth living. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Oct 18, 2008

Fresh: A lovably old-school Hollywood confection. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Oct 22, 2003

This is my all time favorite movie of Jennifer Lopez's! She is stunning in this film, love the fairytale Cinderella story! MUST HAVE Y'ALL! 💙💜💚❤
Oh and the soundtrack is AWESOME!


This movie is really cute and fun. It is developed well and definitely worth buying or renting. The actors make the characters very genuine and presentable, while still feeling real.

Cute but the plot is very deceitful

The story was okay but I didn't like the plot at all

The plot is that a maid was playing around and wearing a guests clothes at the hotel

One thing led out of control and she ended up meeting a guy

She was goaded by her co workers to keep up the farce and eventually the truth comes out

First, the whole underlying deceit in the story:
She lied to the guy
She abused her position as a maid

When the guy breaks up with her I don't blame him
I would be hurt that someone lied to me

Relationships should be built on trust - not lies...even little innocent ones
