Flor (Paz Vega) takes her daughter Cristina (Victoria Luna) from Mexico to live in the United States with hopes of having a better existence. When Cristina hits puberty, Flor decide to changes jobs to keep a closer eye on her offspring. She becomes a housekeeper in the upscale Californian home of John and Deborah Clasky (Adam Sandler and Tea Leoni). John is a renowned chef and Deb is a rich and chic housewife. The clash of culture and language (Flor can't speak English) serves as the origin for significant events in both families' life. And, of course, there is a dog that serves as an amusing distraction at points.
"It's an incredible time in cinema, the "Scooby-Doo" sequel ruling the box office this past weekend aside. In the next year alone, we'll have new films by Cameron Crowe, Wes Anderson, Alexander Payne and David O. Russell. These guys are some of the most fascinating voices in modern American Cinema. As if there was any doubt, you need to add to this incredible group the fantastic James L. Brooks. Very few stories have touched me like this screenplay has."
