Adam Sandler stars as an excellent but unrecognized chef, who likes it that way. Téa Leoni co-stars as his wife, an out-of-work marketing executive who now has time to explore every one of her neuroses. To help keep things in order they hire a housekeeper and nanny (Paz Vega) who does not speak English. Communication may seem difficult, but she manages to teach them about what is important in life. Also with Cloris Leachman and Ian Hyland. Written and directed by James L. Brooks. [1:51]
