JLo as a modern-day Cinderella. Cute, charming, and heartwarming.

J Lo should stick to what she does best, singing and making a prequel to Selena. This felt like a high school drama class even though some well knowns are in it since it dragged on and was monotone. Save yourself some time and money by canceling your maid service!

I got this movie as a Valentine gift after it came out. I liked it but I could only watch it a dozen times or so.

It's that Lopez charm...
Andrew Ellington | I'm kind of everywhere | 07/14/2010
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is pretty formulaic (think `Cinderella' set in modern-day New York), but I have a hard time resisting Jennifer Lopez (you know, unless she is starring in a film with Matthew McConaughey or Richard Gere) and everyone has to just love Ralph Fiennes (the more talented of the Fiennes brothers).

The film basically tells the story of maid who performs a very unprofessional act in trying on the dress of a socialite while she is supposed to be cleaning her room. The hunky Fiennes walks in and becomes smitten, believing the lie that Lopez in, indeed, the socialite. They start dating (kind of) while Lopez continues the improbably ruse to distract him from the truth about her `day job'. Of course he's going to find out sooner or later, and they'll have that standard "you lied to me" routine where you think for a brief moment that they won't end up together and then BAM out of nowhere (sarcasm) they wind up together.

Yeah, that's pretty much the movie in a nutshell.

I'm not for certain that Fiennes is the best choice for a romantic comedy leading man. He is far too proper to really sell the humor in this story. That said, he plays his `character' well, if his character were in a dramatic film. Lopez is nearly always charming, even when her films are not (well, unless she is plotting revenge on an abusive husband). She soars here, as expected, and so I'll give her that.

It must be stated thought, that as good as Lopez is, this film kind of BELONGS to Bob Hoskins and Stanley Tucci.

If you like an ample dose of preposterousness mixed with predictability in your comedy, then this film will fit the bill. Thankfully it has the performances to save the film from becoming a mess. It isn't smart and it isn't fresh and it isn't that memorable, but for a lazy Sunday afternoon there is far worse entertainment out there.

I'll watch it again."
