This movie had been on my TBW list forever and I'm really glad that I finally watched it. I didn't expect to love this movie so much, but it was amazing. The cast including Hector Elizondo (whom I've loved in so many movies and TV shows-Monk in particular), Jacqueline Orbradors (whom I loved on NYPD Blue) and Elizabeth Pena (love her too!) were wonderful! I really liked Paul Rodriguez because although he had some funny lines but it was nice to see a more dramatic side of him opposite Elizabeth Pena.
The storyline is family oriented, centering around a family of three daughters and their father and the relationship of the daughters with their respective love interests. It flipped back and forth between stories but it was really easy to follow and not confusing at all.
The food-OMG, the food shown was absolutely amazing and the filmmakers have made the food a star, which rivals the actors and actresses.
There is barely any swearing and no nudity at all, which was a wonderful surprise. Loved everything about this movie except for a few plot holes that could have been explained better, but overall "Tortilla Soup" is wonderful. I loved the way the Spanish and English were mixed so well. It really brought out the theme of the film.
I highly recommend it, but maybe not when you're hungry.
