Cute "Odd Couple" romp
Byron Kolln | the corner where Broadway meets Hollywood | 08/21/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Cute "Odd Couple" comedy with Nell Carter and Dinah Manoff. When snooty Tibby Bloom (Manoff) becomes a widow and loses all her money, she has no other option than to get a job. She becomes the maid to sassy singer Jasmine Jones (Carter) whose about to make her big comeback. Complications arise when her husband shows up dead in her house...and all evidence points to Jasmine as the killer, so the girls head out on a race against time to find the real murderer!

Fans of Broadway diva Nell Carter and sitcom darling Dinah Manoff ("Soap", "Empty Nest") will find a lot to love about this entertaining made-for-TV comedy. And the price is pretty good too."

"(from the back cover)
When Tibby Bloom's (Dinah Manoff) husband leaves her a grieving widow, things seem bad enough, but when she finds out he's left her with nothing but memories and bills to pay, things quickly get worse! As her only skills are organizing her social calender and the staff who took care of her house, Tibby has no choice by to take a job as a maid for famous singer Jasmine Jones (Nell Carter). The two get off to a rocky start but when Jasmine's husband is found murdered and she is framed for the crime, she turns to the only person who can help her - her new maid!

For this being a tv movie, it actually is a pretty good one. When you have free time on a weekend and want to watch something, this would be the movie to watch."

"Tibby Bloom (Dina Manoff) is a widowed high-speed getaway car driver who polished her skills in crowded Beverly Hills shopping malls where "it's every Mercedes for itself." After being "flossed" by her husband, penniless Tibby becomes maid to her favorite songstress, the garish Jasmine Jones (Nell Carter) who has some personnel issues as a byproduct of her crass personality. While preparing a banquet for a group of prominent producers and investors, Tibby discovers more than cobwebs in the closet. Unwilling to be framed for murder, the further they try to run, the closer they get to one another.

Perhaps one reason why Dina Manoff appears so comfortable in her role is because she is the writer and an executive producer. With a larger budget, this television comedy would have done far better than many of the so-called silver screen Hollywood blockbusters. Despite its grainy television resolution, MAID FOR EACH OTHER will have even the most depressed widowers choking on their Haagen Dazs from laughter. Like MY MOTHER THE SPY, this is great bargain.

Movie quote: "I'm the maid, or I was, and believe me, I would know if there was a dead body in the house. I mean where would we keep it, in the closet?""
