Let's be honest: We've all had a crush on a maid at some point in our lives. Maybe it hasn't been obvious at first but there is something innately sexy about a chamber maid coming into your hotel room or a maid coming round to clean up after you. Maybe it's the fact that she could walk in at an inopportune moment. Maybe it's because they clean your dirty linen. Anyway, cinema has had plenty of sexy maids throughout it's tenure. However some of them end up knowing way too much than they should have done because of their pokey profession. Here are 5 movies about maids who knew too much.
