John Clasky (Adam Sandler) is an affectionate father and a renowned chef.  He strives to provide his wife, Deborah (Tea Leoni) and daughter Bernice (Sarah Steele) with a comfortable life.  John hires Flor (Paz Vega), a Mexican housekeeper to make Deborah's life easier, and she soon becomes a member of the Claskyclan in her own right.

Deborah and Flor's daughter, Cristina (Shelbie Bruce) become especially close.  This disturbs Flor to some extent, not due to jealousy, but fear that Deborah is teaching the teenager immoral behavior and distancing Christina from her Mexican roots.  Slowly conflict runs rampant in the previously harmonious home.  

Spanglish was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.
