Marisa Ventura (Lopez) is a Maid In Manhattan, applying for a management position, juggling guest requests, and preparing a suite for assemblyman Chris Marshall (Fiennes) and his Weimaraner.

The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits image quality that is just fine for the storytelling. Colors are rich and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, bold hues, and deep blacks. The picture is sharp and pleasantly detailed, with perfectly satisfying contrast and shadow delineation. The biggest offense is the appearance of edge enhancement, but many scenes are free from its distraction. Pixelization is also minimal. (Suzanne Hodges)The disc also includes a modified 1.33:1 (4:3) version of the movie (not reviewed).
Reason #72 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I love to read WSR because of the straightforward, professional equipment reviews. I also LOVE the DVD reviews. As a home theatre fanatic, I want to know the technical and quality aspects of my future purchase/rental DVDs with just a brief synopsis of what the movie is about. Other home theatre publications spend way too much space reviewing the movie itself. I will make my own judgments on the merits of the movie, what I want from my magazine is some insight on how the DVD will sound and look on my system. WSR gives the reader just that. GREAT mag! Keep up the good work!
