Spanglish

Rated PG-13 2004

In this snapshot of a crumbling marriage populated by sitcom characters, Adam Sandler plays John Clasky, a celebrated chef who runs a successful restaurant in Beverly Hills and has a beautiful wife named Deborah (Tea Leoni). He's also the father of two wise-beyond-their-years children named George (Ian Hyland) and Bernice (Sarah Steele), and he lives in a modestly palatial home. But beneath the perfect surface, trouble roils: Deborah's great body is all that remains from John and Deborah's early days as a married couple; she has no time for John and, ultimately, no need for him either. Into this cauldron of spite and ennui enters housekeeper Flor (Paz Vega), the mother Bernice always wanted and the wife John craves. Sandler's perfect as the put-upon man who feels more than he will ever permit himself to say, but Spanglish is just good enough that you might wish it were better. Though there are moments that will break your heart, James L. Brooks' movie is too long in spots, too repetitive and obvious in others.
