Spanglish (2004)

I like James L. Brooks' characters. This film is full of great ones, and it's fun to watch them interact. This is Sandler's second great dramatic role, although I prefered him in Punch Drunk Love. Tea Leoni is fantastic as his dysfunctional wife. Paz Cruz is  devastatingly beautiful. Sandler's daughter is perfectly cast. The story may not be perfect, but the rest of the film makes up for it.

Rating: B-
