You don't even need to watch the first half of the film, for Mary's character and her obsession with her son is so clich. For the first half of the film, Mary (Hillary Swank) comes off more like an automaton super-mom than a flesh and blood human. The intent here is that we've got a person who's so obsessed with getting it right because of the parental neglect growing up (yes, she even blames her father for her son's death. That bad!) that she goes overboard in rearing her son and interacting with him. She tries too hard, and ends up coming across forced and opaque. So maybe the nature of Mary's character really is just spot on, albeit plastic and stoic.What this film really points up is the fact that many in the western world live their lives like royalty while the other 80-90% suffers and suffers dearly. The point here, especially for Americans, is that we may best want to look at what's happening to the rest of the world before we indulge in our little worlds too freely, too often (the U.S. is 6% of the world's population yet has more than half the world's wealth). Do we with all that we have, have a responsibility to reach out and help others? To reach out across continents even? This appears to be the message of the film. Let's get out of our tiny worlds, our safe worlds, and look at what is going on elsewhere, or we may just pay dearly for our negligence. It is in the final scene where this point is made obvious. As Mary and Martha appear before Congress, the focus for the decision makers is mere numbers not individual lives, Martha, who guaranteed that she would not speak at the hearing, can't keep quite at one point. Her purpose as a mom, a mom of millions comes to fruition as she begins to show seemingly endless photos of children who have died from malaria. My only qualm with the film is that it didn't give more details in the epilogue about the particulars of the horrors of all the children who have died.

The veteran Nobuko Miyamoto seems to be still great, and really desirable, despite the years. A work from her like her best times, in the 80's and 90's. Delicious movie.

The movie is a bit everywhere , you start off by familiarizing yourself with a certain characters then you forget about them because they are no longer relevant to the story and in the middle of the movie , they add characters, the only good one other than Sandler'ss was played by Leachman. Spanglish was no disaster but it wasn't a movie I would watch again.

(kr) wrote: Blame it on the Bellboy is an underrated British comedy gem set in the beautiful city of Venice. When a linguistically challenged bellboy confuses the invitations going to a realtor, a philanderer and an assassin, he unintentionally sends each man to the wrong location and sets in motion a chain of events that result in an old-fashioned farce. The movie soon spins into an unpretentious and delightful romp around the beauteous locations in Venice complete with clever misunderstandings. Dudley Moore is especially appealing here in one of his last screen roles. Bronson Pinchot is also a riot as the world's worst bellboy. Director Mark Herman expertly weaves the three story lines together with a slew of great jokes and subtle sight gags. If you like your comedy literate with a little dark humour around the edges and a surprise ending, you will adore this comedy of errors.

"Tales from the Darkside: The Movie" is a somewhat underwhelming horror anthology that kicks off with a tale called "Lot 249," adapted from Arthur Conan Doyle. Steve Buscemi, Christian Slater, and Julianne Moore co-star in the segment, which features a dorky college student who resurrects an ancient mummy to exact his revenge. The second story, "Cat from Hell," is a Stephen King tale adapted by George Romero, about an rich old recluse (William Hickey) who lives in fear of a supernaturally-endowed black cat. Despite the star power and famous penmanship, the first two stories are mediocre at best. The film definitely saves the best for last. "Lover's Vow" is an original story by Michael McDowell (who also worked on "Beetlejuice" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas"). James Remar ("Dexter") stars as a down-and-out artist who watches his best friend get murdered by a hulking, winged demon. The creature promises to let Remar live if he vows never to tell anyone about what he has seen. After falling in love (with Rae Dawn Chong) and having a family, the demon's curse comes back to haunt him. In comparison to other horror anthology films, this one's better than most Hammer and Amicus films, but doesn't hold a candle to King and Romero's "Creepshow."
