Rich but repulsive teenager Ally Sheedy can't stand the notion that the whole world doesn't jump to the crack of her whip. Her overindulgent father, millionaire Tom Skerritt, wishes he could teach his daughter a lesson, but can't bring himself to deny his little darling everything her heart desires. Unfortunately for Sheedy (but fortunately for us), she gets her comeuppance when, during a moment of despair, she pulls a Jimmy Stewart and mutters a wish that she'd never been born. Zap! Enter fairy godmother Beverly D'Angelo, who grants the girl her wish. With no name, no friends, no money, no nothin', Sheedy has no choice but to look for work. She is hired as a maid by filthy-rich Malibuites Valerie Perrine and Dick Shawn, whose selfish excesses make Sheedy look like Pollyanna. Worse still, Sheedy is compelled by circumstance to meet her father Skeritt, who of course doesn't recognize her. Get the message, kids? Actually, Maid to Order is not as obvious and unsubtle as its synopsis may make it seem. The key to the film's success is the wonderfully many-sided performance of Ally Sheedy, who could probably earn applause by reading the want ads. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
