      Craig K Love this movie even in the horrible quality dvd version that I have. Wish they would restore this into bluray quality. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/23/22 Full Review Audience Member I love this movie! It brings me right back to the amazing 80's and has tons of 80's fashion eye-candy! Lots of fun to watch, Ally Sheedy is cute and endearing, even while being a complete spoiled brat. Beverly D'Angelo is always awesome and the Starkey couple steal the show! Has some laugh out loud moments even if its laughing at Ally's almost-mullet or her corny double chin shelf during the piano scene at the Starkey's home. Everyone down to the employment agency lady plays their part well. Everyone is funny. An awesome appearance by Doctor and the Medics playing Spirit in the Sky really puts you in the 80's. Love Love Love this movie! Could watch it again and again. If you love pure classic unadulterated 80's gold, then this is the perfect movie for you to watch! Sit back and enjoy- it's not going to change your life but its a ton of fun. :) Favorite Quotes? " There's nothing to talk about. I did not spend six years in junior college to be a maid." " Jessie, what is the matter with you?! I don't like Charades and certainly not with the help!" Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Great 80's classic movie with a awesome sound track. Beverly D'Angelo was a great fairy good mother. Merry Clayton has a great voice. Typical unappreciative rich girl having to learn the hard way how to appreciate what she has. Great life lesson. Must watch. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review ashley h Maid to Order is a disappointing film. It is about a snobbish little rich girl is magically transformed into a penniless nobody after the results of a poorly considered wish. Ally Sheedy and Beverly D'Angelo give terrible performances. The script is badly written. Amy Holden Jones did a horrible job directing this motion picture. I was not impressed with this motion picture. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It's the best movie ever made and It has my favorite music and band doctor and the medics Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review william s Cute comedy that's barley got enough for a one time watch.
