A Mexican immigrant takes on a new job and the paths of both families collide

I started watching this just hoping for a few laughs, this being an Adam Sandler movie. Instead, I found a deep story dealing with issues relevant to real life: what are the values that define you as a person? What is acceptable and what is not? Why one has to draw the distinction between what feels good and what is good?

Spanglish is a good movie backed up by some great performances by Paz Vega and Adam Sandler. Tea Leoni performs her role well and Cloris Leachman is an able support, at times adding a flavor of dry comedy.

I won't reveal the plot. All I'll say is it is worth your time. A funny movie with a solid story and something to take away later.

As many comic films do....

This movie starts out fresh with all sorts of charm and clever writing... but turns into something else altogether after mid-point. The dreary situation of Sandler's marriage and attraction to Vega causes him to mostly... sit there and mumble. The drinking scene in the restaurant is just slow and thinly written. The interactions of the two families involved is fun and touching... and that part alone is good enough for me to rate it well. After awhile, though, the writer just seemed to run low on plot. I've seen this happen in a lot of comedies... writers seem to always want to make material DEEP or be sure they've punched the 'cry' button. If it stayed light and was shorter... it would have been tighter and more entertaining all around.

Different side of Sandler

Spanglish, a 2004 film starring Adam Sandler, which is directed and written by James L Brooks. The film is quite a different take and departure from typical Adam Sandler starring films, and reason is because he did not have his typical Happy Madison Production on this film. Where as Spanglish is more of a serious film which centers towards more morals and serious issues as well as described as a drama- comedy. Though the film has a lot of moments of emotion that have no heft but don't offend either, countered by instances of impressive cleverness. Much like the melodrama and humor play off each other, the movie's less-than-cogent politics are almost like a foil for the charming performances and highly amusing script. Nobody's perfect. The cast is all great, and Paz Vega is completely likable as Flor (A woman turned maid coming to America), as she steals the scenes she is in and is convincing in her tough role. The film is well written, well acted and the cast all deliver well. The film is quite underrated in some regards, though is rarely mentioned among Sandler's "best films" list, and a reason could be, is that Spanglish is quite a different film compared to his other comedies.
