Movie: Maid in Manhattan
So now that Telemundo has launched Una maid en Manhattan, I decided to watch the original movie with
Jennifer Lopez. If you haven't watch the novela, Maid in Manhattan is a good start and summary to grasp your interest. I'm glad Jennifer Lopez didn't play your typical "extra" Latina. Although there were some scenes throughout the move that reference her Latina-ness, it wasn't important. And yes at the end Lopez's character sees an epiphany and doesn't want to clean homes anymore. The story is more about love and how we can find it in the strangest of places. And that we shouldn't judge ANYONE because love is blind after all :). I do wonder how the novela will drag out the movie for 8 weeks.
