The strange tonal shifts in James L. Brooks' Spanglish are addressed obliquely by the director in his commentary track for the DVD release of the film. The fascinating aspect of the commentary is that Brooks does not seem to think there is anything wrong with the film even while he tells stories about how audiences reacted to the movies in ways he found unusual. Brooks also addresses the rumors about the problems between his lead actress and himself. The commentary offers a look at a director who is still a little too close to his film. The film itself is presented in a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. Additional supplemental materials include a featurette on the greatest sandwich ever (includes a recipe), footage from the casting sessions, and deleted scenes.

Though the performances were good. I thought about this movie while reading a book called Sophie's Heart. Haven't seen this movie in like a while and so watched it again. It is an okay but good movie.

I liked this movie. It's not your usual Adam Sandler comedy, very lighthearted and family-oriented. A good way to pass an evening.

Hi, I think this was a very good movie. I think that Paz Vega could do much , much better in the next film and do justice to herself. I would be curious to see how Spanglish part 2 would be made and how the message flow of the new movie would go and maybe Adam Sandler and Paz Vega could actually get married after the cheating wife keeps on cheating. I can see that Paz Vega would keep her honor to Adam and Adam would keep his honor to Paz Vega too!!! That is for sure. I don't know what the story plot would be and I am extremely curious... and those 2 girls now into college.... Be very interesting to watch. I hope Paz Vega does a much more better job in this next film.

Ok, my husband didn't like it because of the ending. I liked the ending. You'll decide after you watch it. For now, I'll say that this movie will make women think about their identities, relationships with women and daughters, marriage, and why the heck Tea Leoni looks so awesome after having two kids!

This is a movie that i greatly enjoyed. Everyone must see this movie. Although it may be slow at times, it really has a deep message that everyone can learn from. It will teach you many things about yourself, and makes you question your ture movtives and identity in life in general. I recommend this movie to those who speak spanish, but even if all you know is 'hola' you will greatly enjoy it!

Now this was unexpected. I thought it would be one of those hilarious, yet for me, sometimes nonsensical Adam Sandler movies, but instead it was a heartwarming, funny family movie. On the whole, I liked it - the story is great, the actors are very good (and I think I quite like Sandler in less than funny roles), Tea Leoni was amazing, and it was not this all-white, all-loving, all-good movie, and even the ending would not fit the Hollywood stereotype, which actually lifts it above average, in my opinion. It is about very real issues, very real conflicts, people with faults just trying to get by, and live life according to their standards, and I enjoyed it. It does have some of the feel-good element in it, but overall, it doesn`t become too soppy, which is such a relief, because that would have totally ruined the entire movie. I recommend it heartily for a nice evening movie session. It is not a masterpiece, but good entertainment.

This is a great movie if you like to laugh with white humor... The development of the story was nice and involved a little of everything. It does carry a message to everyone of us. Watch it, you'll enjoy it!
