Maid in Manhattan Blu-Ray Review

Maid in Manhattan Blu-Ray Review

You can own this blu-ray today

Synopsis: Marisa Ventura (Jennifer Lopez) is a struggling single mom who works at a posh Manhattan hotel and dreams of a better life for her and her young son (Tyler Posey). One fateful day, hotel guest and senatorial candidate Christopher Marshall (Ralph Fiennes) meets Marisa and mistakes her for a wealthy socialite. After an enchanting evening together, the two fall madly in love. But when Marisa's true identity is revealed, issues of class and social status threaten to separate them. Can two people from very different worlds overcome their differences and live happily ever after? From acclaimed director Wayne Wang (Anywhere But Here) and co-starring Natasha Richardson, Stanley Tucci and Bob Hoskins, Maid in Manhattan is "Romantic! Funny! Uplifting!" (Neil Rosen, NY1).

Review: I'm only going to do a brief write-up on this one.  More than likely you've seen this romantic comedy already.  Its many years old and has been on DVD.  Its now being released on blu-ray high-definition, so we wanted to give it a shout out.

Maid in Manhattan is a very cute film.  Its one of Jennifer Lopez's better roles (though her best is in 'Out of Sight').  Its one of those uplifting romantic comedy date flicks that we know you guys love so much.

The question of the hour, what is it like in high-definition?  Well, its great actually.  It has minimal grain and the colors pop when applicable.  New York outdoor shots definately are different and you get a lot of definition on the faces (a little less make-up next time JLo!).  All in all this is a great release and a fun update to a very solid film. 

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
