SPANGLISH

 

This is not your typical Adam Sandler movie. It's dramatic, yet never melodramatic. It looks into the lives of two very different families with a language and culture barrier.

Spanglish tells the story of a Mexican immigrant mother and daughter who find a place in America as a housekeeper for a very wealthy eccentric family.

All the actors do a fantastic job, but I'd have to say Cloris Leachman really stands out as Sandler's mother-in-law.

It's a blend of comedy I really liked and definitely worth seeing. I loved the sometimes-awkward relationship between Sandler and the housekeeper. It starts out a little slow, but turns out to be a cute, funny movie.

It's refreshing to see a film that depends on character development to carry the story along.
Filled with sharp wit and whimsical insights, this tale of a deteriorating American family is a slice-of-life culture clash.

And what it lacks in plot, it more than makes up in solid performances, charm, and characters you'll never forget.

This is a very unpleasant film that puts on a false face disguise, as a sincere, true emotional commentary on life.

I found the movie to be a Hollywood fantasy without much of a storyline--very weak on details with the problems that left questions unanswered.

The ending was disappointing in my opinion.
