Maid in Manhatten: Barry Wetcher

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
