We rate J. Lo’s performance in ”Maid in Manhattan”
PREMISE Lopez is a Cinderella-ish hotel chambermaid who tries on a rich guest’s outfit and is mistaken for a socialite by a princely politician.
LOVE INTEREST Ralph Fiennes, the keen-eyed politico
OVERBEARING FATHER FIGURE Hotel valet Bob Hoskins
HER CHARACTER’S ANCESTRY Puerto Rican
MEMORABLE MOMENT It’s all about the makeover, as Jenny from the block is transformed into a couture swan and makes a glam entrance to a formal party.
WHAT EW SAID In this ”graceless variation on Pretty Woman and Working Girl,” Lopez seems ”steely and manufactured,” while Fiennes is ”wan and watery.”
J. LO’S GRADE C
THE MOVIE C
