Editorial Reviews

John Clasky (Adam Sandler) is a devoted dad whose skills as a chef have afforded his family (T=E9a Leoni, Cloris Leachman) a very upscale life, including a summer home in Malibu and a breathtaking new housekeeper, Flor (Paz Vega), who has recently immigrated to L.A. from Mexico, and is trying to find a better life for her remarkable daughter, Cristina (Shelbie Bruce), who is rapidly embracing the American way of life. When Flor and Cristina move in with the Claskys for the summer, Flor has to fight for her daughter's soul as she discovers that life in a new country is perilous...especially when you're being embraced by an affluent, eccentric American family.

Format: DVD
When movie trailers come out months before the release of a film and movie billboards crowd the malls and other places trying to convince the public of what to expect (read 'how can we guarantee making the most money from the biggest crowd?'), it is difficult to get motivated to step over the hype and decide for yourself the merits and message of a little movie.

SPANGLISH used slapstick approach, beginning with focus on Adam Sandler of the superfluff/toilet mouth 'comedy' genre, to publicize this little story into a COMEDY. That was enough to keep this viewer out of the theater. But seeing James L. Brooks current opus at home without all the hoopla of the theater crowd resulted in a pleasant discovery: this is a well-written little drama, peppered with some comedy, that addresses a lot of issues about parenting, cross-ethnicity, living your dream vs skimming off the top, having loyalty to the inner self, the desperate need for communication in today's loud world, alcoholism, etc. Not the stuff for slapstick, nor is it treated that way.

John Clasky (Adam Sandler in a straight role that allows him to show substance over pratt falls) is a successful chef who is able to support his family with a home in Beverly Hills and a summer home at the beach (obviously Malibu). His wife Deborah (Tea Leoni in a wildly dysfunctional mother role which she handles well), in desperation for breathing room to pursue her lackluster life, hires a non-English speaking Latina maid Flor (Paz Vega) who has immigrated to the US with her young daughter Cristina (Shelbie Bruce, a amazingly bilingual young actress) to make a life for herself after her husband has left her.

Format: DVD
Everyone in this movie gives an amazingly moving performance. Not only is it Adam Sandler's best performance(because he is not trying to be a fool!), but also Tea Leoni's. She shows herself to be a fine comedic actress with amazingly perfect timing. Also remarkable is Paz Vega, especially when you consider that she learned English in the movie along with the character she plays(life imitating art!). Even the children were perfectly convivncing. I hope you get a chance to see the deleted scenes, many of which should have been left in! Some of them are very funny, and some very touching. A simple way to state the lesson that this story eloquently expresses, is the difficulty people in families have in communicating with each other, whether they speak the same language or not. This is an excellent example of how it is possible for a perfect movie to come out of the great Hollywood machine! All fans of the independent style film will love this movie and it is a great family film, as well.

I don't particularly love Adam Sandler's comedies. Fortunately, "Spanglish" is not one of them! It's more of a James L. Brooks movie. Once again, he writes, directs and produces, as he did with the classic "Terms of Endearment" back in 1983, and more recently, with "As Good as It Gets".

Sandler plays John Clasky, a renowned chef who is in the prime of his professional career. He's the classic "good guy", who loves his family and keeps a great balance between the time he devotes to work and the time with his kids. Plus he loves his insecure wife Deborah, played by Tea Leoni (Deep Impact, The Family Man), one wacky lady who has put her career on hold to raise her family.

Complementing the cast is Paz Vega, who broke into international stardom playing Lucia in "Sex and Lucia". She plays Flor (with rolled "R" at the end), a protective Mexican mom who wants to stay as close as possible to her native Mexican values, even while living in the heart of L.A., cleaning and cooking for the Clasky family.

While the plot does lead into some predictable events (don't mean to spoil the story for you), this is not your "typical" Adam Sandler movie. As a matter of fact, some of the most hilarious moments are not courtesy of the legend from "The Wedding Singer" and Saturday Night Live, but rather the result of the head-on encounter of two cultures, where no side can speak the other's language or easily understand each other's motivations.

With a balance between humor and drama that is preserved throughout most of the plot, the movie stands a good chance of being almost as popular as "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was a back in 2002.

I always think of Adam Sandler as silly but he has surprised me. 50 First Dates was quite a surprise which I enjoyed sufficiently to purchase the DVD. I then received Spanglish on our Netflix account and again was surprised by the lack of silliness; in fact I thought it had great depth if a bit slow. I just purchased the DVD at Fry's Electronics to add to our collection of our favorite movies.

To me the best thing about this movie was how it held to good moral standards in the face of temptation. There were a few really good lines as well and I found the entire movie quite plausible. Even my 15 year old son thought it was good.

I love this movie. It is about being a decent person and knowing there is value in doing the right thing. the movie is insightful and touching.
This is not a brainless action/comedy/ romantic comedy movie. It is an observation of real interactions between people and how people and things in life dont turn out the way you expected. That being said, it is a sweet, sensitive story and the homes are fabulous.
