It was not part of the plan to watch the movie but all of the sudden I find myself inside the movie house and enjoying what I first thought was a comedy but in reality was a heart warming movie full of lessons about family and parenting. I can not remember the last time that a movie was able to touch me the way this movie did. There was indeed comedy and the movie house had a lot of laughter especially on scenes that involved the language barrier between Flor (Paz Vega) and Adam Sandler's Family (I forgot their surname). In reality, the comedy was just a strategy to portray family and parenting from the heart. I surely would not hesitate to recommend the movie and I'm very sure that people who have seen the movie will themselves examine their attitude towards parenting and family in general.
