A great family entertainer and for a change, Adam Sandler is no more the bumbling awkward guy but a successful award winning cook, married and a father of two - a role which suits him well.

The main characters in the story are Paz Vega as Flor- a Mexican woman and her daughter who immigrates from Mexico to United States and after six years of living in the 'latin quarter' of LA, gets a housekeeping job with the Sandler's family. All the character are witty, likeable and real, so are the dialogs. The film opens in the form of a letter the Mexican girl (Flor's daughter) sends as a part of her admissions package to Princeton - "Why she'd like to study at Princeton/Why Princeton should choose her" type letters, the whole story unfolds through that letter. Worth the watch.
