An Amusing film with truth about families interwoven
26 November 2006 | by LucyslegacySee all my reviews

I watched this movie at Clemson University for credit for a Spanish class. I found it greatly entertaining, full of truisms about families, and touchingly honest. I would heartily recommend it to anyone wanting to enjoy an evening, improve their Spanish, and see family jaunt with a new car. The performance by all was strong, but the father was my favorite. A short ineffective parent, he displayed his emotional immaturity like a champ, and loved his family greatly even with all of his weaknesses. The main character, the younger daughter, was an impressive rebel, attempting to break out of the lower middle class confines of her family. The mother was a sexy Colombian mom, with loving concerns about her children, amidst her own selfish nature. The son was comedy in action.
