As reluctant as they say they are, it seems that they are more than willing to babel on about it and the privilege that accompanies it throughout the movie which seems hypocritical.

Jennifer Lopez’s character, Marissa, is a maid that falls in love with a wealthy politician. Despite the movie being a repeat of ever romantic-comedy ever created, the director adds an important storyline in the movie, and then very rarely returns to the topic. In the midst of all the romance, Marissa is also trying to get a promotion and become part of management.
