Flor (Paz Vega), a beautiful, native Mexican housekeeper is hired by the affluent, yet troubled, Clasky family (Headed by Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni). The result is a refreshingly honest look at life in America. This witty perceptive collision of cultures and values make for an interesting film.

The name of the film is a hybrid of Spanish and English, a dialect spoken by many Latinos. John and Deborah are having difficulty in their marriage. John (Adam Sandler) is a loving, patient father and husband. He is the chef and owner of an up and coming restaurant. Deborah (Tea Leoni) has recently lost her job as a commercial designer and is an the midst of an identity crisis. Their two children Bernice and Georgie (Sarah Steele and Ian Hyland) suffer from Deborah's idealized vision of how they should be. I loved Deborah's mother, Evelyn (Cloris Leachman) who is painfully aware of her daughter's internal chaos - but her warnings fall on deaf ears.

The maid Flor is drawn into the family circle. This is just a tidbit of the story but I think you can see how interesting it will become. It is nice to see Adam Sandler in a role outside his normal wild behavior. This is an enjoyable show with a lot of substance.
