Ralph Fiennes smiles! Okay, so it's not Greta Garbo laughs but the serious-minded Brit is not known for romantic comedies--in fact, this bit of fluff is his first. He's wealthy political scion Christopher Marshall, who's running for a New York Senate seat when he meets cute with Marisa (Lopez). She's the ambitious Latina single mom who's working as a maid in a posh NYC hotel but he mistakes her for a guest. Much angst (and tabloid gossip) when the truth is revealed until the prerequisite happy ending. Lopez is tenacious but her best scenes are with cutie newcomer Posey, who plays her 10-year-old son, and loud-mouthed best friend Matrone.

Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes star in Maid in Manhattan. The movie hit theaters in 2002 and has a run time of 105 minutes. Marisa Ventura (Lopez) is lives in the Bronx of New York City. She’s a single mother and works as a maid in a first-class hotel in Manhattan. By mistake, she is mistaken as a guest at the hotel, where she meets Christopher Marshall (Fiennes). Christopher is a wealthy heir. He doesn’t realize that she is a maid. He believes she is a guest. The two go out for the night. Later, Marisa’s true identity is revealed. That doesn’t please Christopher that she lied. Putting their differences aside and where they came from, the two work out their differences and fall in love.
