Ty Ventura (Tyler Garcia Posey)
A hotel maid named Marisa Ventura (Jennifer Lopez) tries on a dress and is mistaken by a politician (Ralph Fiennes) as a socialite.

Carloine Lane (Natasha Richardson)

Except for some exciting tension that occurs when she has to serve as a maid at a dinner between the politician and hotel guest Caroline Lane (Nastasha Richardson), everything else about the plot is essentially standard romantic-comedy fare.

Overall, Maid in Manhattan is an average or below average romantic comedy. And while Jennifer Lopez is attractive, the movie is not worth watching for this aspect alone.

Instant Comments:
"You look like you're someone who knows the difference between taupe and caramel." I didn't get it. Apparently "taupe" is a "dark grayish brown or brownish gray."

Marisa and Stephanie Kehoe (Marissa Matrone)
"Kick up your skirts." "The expression is kick up your heels."
