Maid In Manhattan | 2002 | PG-13 | - 4.1.4

A woman (Jennifer Lopez) working as a maid in an exclusive hotel in New York City while raising her young son, falls in love with an aspiring senator (Ralph Fiennes), and he falls in love with her. The problem is that he thinks she's a guest at the hotel, not the maid. But they eventually learn that affluence has nothing to do with someone's true value. Also with Natasha Richardson, Di Quon and Kevin Wade. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A woman sits on a bed, a man invites her to stay with him, they kiss and lie back on the bed and we see them sleeping together the next morning (we see his bare shoulders and her bare thighs as she gets out of bed). A man and a woman kiss a few times, a woman kisses a man and a woman kisses a man on the cheek. We see a nude man (bare back and buttocks) from the back standing outside his locked hotel door (we see him a couple of times on a security monitor). A man stands presumably nude (we see him bare to the waist) in front of two women who make veiled remarks about his endowment. A man unzips his pants preparing to urinate, but doesn't realize that a woman is in the bathroom cleaning up; he is startled and she slips out. Two women exercise and their outfits reveal bare abdomens, cleavage and bare backs. And a woman wears a low cut top that reveals cleavage, a woman wears a tight sweater with hip-hugger pants that reveal a bit of bare back and cleavage, and women wear evening gowns that reveal cleavage, bare shoulders and bare backs. Sexual innuendo includes: We hear that a man's girlfriend is checking out of the hotel as his wife and children are arriving. A woman asks another woman if, "[her] mind is always on the pepperoni," a woman says, "I almost sat on your face" when she goes to sit on a magazine with a man's face on the cover, and a woman describes a man's eyes and "sexy lips."

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
