By James Bowman. Her services are much valued by her employers and she is regarded as a good prospect to be the first maid to make the leap into management. Well, overlook for a moment the implausibility of the celebrity treatment which is being accorded this small-time politician. And a Republican politician at that!

Some of the dialogue seems to have suspiciously sprung out of a corny Deepak Chopra self-help manu Fiennes is at a disadvantage, an actor, not a comedian Lopez is a perfectly efficient comedienn This maid is a near miss. Still, there's enough of JLo for her fans to like the film.
In Maid in Manhattan, Jennifer Lopez stoops to conquer.
The title sequence of Paul Schrader's Auto Focus is one of those brightly coloured Doris Day jobs, its rinky-dink cheeriness belying the grim real-life story to follow. A Catholic family man, Crane is a blandly amiable fellow whose only real passion seems to be playing the drums, but then stardom arrives and with it a new friend, John Carpenter Willem Dafoe , who introduces him to the new-fangled pleasures of video technology. From doing guest drum spots in strip clubs Crane progresses, under Carpenter's influence, to nightly sex parties, which they film and later watch together: an odd couple, you might say. Schrader has built a career on portraying weirdly driven men, both fictional Taxi Driver and real Mishima, The Last Temptation of Christ but he's on to something new here. Despite wrecking two marriages, despite his frantic promiscuity, and despite the squalid pimping he and Carpenter do for each other, Crane regards himself as a regular guy.
