It's quite simple. Maid in Manhattan is your usual romantic fairytale: man sees a beautiful lady and falls in love with her. But for some reason or another, lady cannot be with man because of a secret, and as I'm sure you can predict, there is a rather soppy end scene where they kiss and make up and live happily ever after!!
I have to say that although this is your typical romantic film, I did enjoy it. I mean, it wasn't that bad. I have to admit that I prefer Jennifer Lopez as an actress rather than a singer. But I don't think that this film has anything extra or special about it! I wouldn't say that this film was a comedy, but I did find myself chuckling in a few bits!
Don't buy it, just rent it!!! That's what I did! It's much better! And if you can get it free, even better!!!!!!!
