So I just saw Spanglish and Adam Sandler can really act. This is definitely a drama, not a comedy (although I laughed a lot). I had a few edit issues that seemed out of place but there was nothing else to complain about. A lot happened in the two hour movie that probably took place over six(?) months. If you think you’d enjoy it, you probably will. Just remember it’s not a slapstick Adam Sandler movie.

Spanglish James L. BrooksBut I’m not even writing this to give you the review that you see above, I’m writing this because I like one line that Adam Sandler says. I’m intentionally not quoting it exactly but it was something like “but if that happens then I’ll have to work more and not get to do the stuff I like”. Okay so that makes it sound more selfish when it was really more sappy (but it really wasn’t because I changed the words to not give too much away)t. Here’s the point, it made me think more about my recent post and me not getting to do the things I want to do in life. We’re not even talking about stuff like getting married or having kids, just stuff that I enjoy. I need to figure out a way to do more of that stuff.

What else is interesting is that one of the storylines is about one of the character’s being ignored. But there is another character that IS ignored so what right does the first character have to complain about? (You’ll see what I mean, ’cause I know you’ll go see this). This will ring a bell once you’ve seen it.

    Personally, I find that when I’ve got a little time, I let it get swallowed up by something like posting to my blog. If I were to find the discipline not to browse websites, read the news or think of something to write for my blog every time I had a spare moment, I’d probably be forced to be more productive, but I do these things *because* I subconsciously want to avoid doing anything else, so the discipline is fighting against my innate laziness.
