Movie Review by Lance
June 22nd, 2005

"Spanglish". Would someone please tell Adam Sandler to wise up and get back to making comedy? He doesn't return my phone calls. "Spanglish" isn't a bad movie, for a James L. Brooks' weeper, but why can Sandler stick to doing what he did well, up until "Little Nicky"? Why do these idiots feel they need to grow? "Anger Management", "Punch Drunk Love", "Fifty First Dates"? Give it up already, and make us all happy with "Happy Madison II: The Singing Waterboy". That ain't gonna happen, and if the remake of "The Longest Yard" is anything like that painful bit that Sandler and Chris Rock did at the Oscars, well: shoot me now. But we're not here to talk about what jerk Sandler has become, this is a review of "Spanglish": typical James L. Brooks fluff. The women in the movie, Tea Leoni, the hot Paz Vega and expectantly Cloris Leachman, are all great, but then that's Brooks' specialty, getting great performances out of women. 'Spanglish" is not as funny as 'Broadcast News'. Not as heart-stringy as "Terms of Endearment" and not as pandering as "As Good As It Gets". Somewhere along the lines of "I'll Do Anything", and until Brooks works through is family issues, he'll keep churning chick flicks like "Spanglish" out. You have been warned.
