Near-perfect mixture of comedy and sentiment
26 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Allowed to walk home from school by themselves for the very first time, Buffy and Jody come across an extraordinarily quiet little girl who has been transplanted to New York from Puerto Rico. Buffy can't seem to get the kid to open up, so she asks Uncle Bill to teach her a little Spanish. This doesn't work either, and we soon find out why--the youngster is deaf and mute. Just about the perfect example of "Family Affair"'s ability to blend childhood whimsy with sentimental drama, and Brian Keith is especially good here once Buffy gets him involved. The Davis twins were forever bringing home misfit kids (and stray animals!), but a nice lesson is always learned, and here it is handled with great skill and taste. The child actress playing little Juanita is very natural and convincing, and Anissa Jones and Johnnie Whitaker both do wonderful work.
