Flor (Paz Vega) emigrates to Los Angeles from Mexico in hopes of finding a better life for her and her daughter, Cristina (Victoria Luna). Hired by the John and Deborah Clasky (Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni) as their housekeeper, Flor contends with the language barrier, Cristina’s budding femininity, and the eccentric Clasky’s way of life.
While I found this film entertaining and heartwarming, I cannot recommend it. The language is unnecessary as is the on screen sex scene. What can be taken away is that faithfulness is important in relationships as is an open dialog between spouses. The main characters never seem to connect on any level as they go about their own lives. While the story is told by Cristina, much of the dysfunction revolves around the Clasky’s and their inability to communicate with each other.
