Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
March 18th, 2007

No Chemistry

This film answers the great question: If you make a romantic comedy totally devoid of chemistry, will people watch? Apparently yes.

Jennifer Lopez and Ralph Fiennes dance through this movie as awkwardly as Elaine on 'Seinfeld'.

The sloppy plot involves a hotel maid who falls in love with a politician and magically they end up together. Give me a break.

Fiennes seems to be more concerned with pulling off a convincing American accent than being charming (like Hugh Grant) or funny (like Tom Hanks), instead he seems like a zombie man that you really wish someone would shoot in the head.

Lopez easily steals the film, but is unable to pull of a romantic comedy without a real on-screen partner. She seems to be trying to be a Latina Sandra Bullock, but we never really buy her as a poor single mom.

Badly made and unconvincing.

I really hated that Ralph Fiennes did this most I think he's a great actor but he's made a few dodgy film choices like this on and the "Avengers".

Yeah, he should never try to go mainstream...it doesn't suit him.
