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