When Flor and her daughter, Christina come to the United States, Flor gets a job as a maid at the home of a successful chef John Clasky, his insecure wife Deborah, their two children, and Deborah's mother. Despite Flor's lack of an English, she does the best she can to assist the Clasky family in more than just house cleaning matters. However, when Flor is forced to live with the family over the summer, she has no choice but to bring Christina along. Deborah, much to Flor's disliking, treats Christina much like her own and at the same time she hurts the feelings of her own daughter, Bernice. When John's dreams begin to unravel, he begins to feel like his whole world is coming down around him. Told through Christina's college letter to Princeton University, Christina learns that things come and go in life, but family is the most important thing a person can have.… (more)

Always thought Sandler was the asshole in his movies, then turning sweet in the last fifteen minutes. Turns out the sweet is him and the asshole is the acting. This is a winning romantic comedy with wonderful performances all around, and Cloris Leachman steals every scene she's in. Another winner from James Brooks. ( )

John Clasky (Adam Sandler) is a devoted dad whose skills as a chef have afforded his family (Tea Leoni, Cloris Leachman) a very upscale life, including a summer home in Malibu and a breathtaking new housekeeper, Flor (Paz Vega). She and her daughter have recently emigrated to LA from Mexico and are trying to find a better life. When they 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!
