Unfortunately, I found it too easy to anticipate most of the big moments.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It's simply so cute, it's hard to resist and the supporting cast -- especially D'Angelo and Shawn -- bring it all to wonderful life.

Cute Ally Sheedy comedy, but forgettable.

January 2, 2005 | Rating: 3/5

A spiffy fairy tale for adults about caring

Audience Reviews for Maid to Order

I remember seeing this back in the 90's and not thinking it was terribly good, but here we are in 2017 and I know now what crap movies are (or I'm old and appreciating 80's and 90's movies more and more). I watched this on YouTube and I really found it quite a sweet little film this time around. Over the top characters, yes, but well intentioned and fun to watch. I love 80's fashions, but I do have to comment on how awful Ally Sheedy's hair was. Almost a mullet.

I really liked this movie, Sheedy plays a rich girl who's life is turned around and she must be the maid instead. This movie is funny and I really liked it.

This modern retelling of the Cinderella fable isn't much of a star vehicle for Ally Sheedy, who's constantly upstaged by the supporting players.
