When a Latino family reunites in Chicago for Christmas, issues bubble up at the dinner table alongside the sweet potato casserole in Nothing Like the Holidays. Jesse (Rodriguez) is recovering from his stint as a soldier in Iraq, while his brother (Leguizamo) ping-pongs between his grandchild-desiring mom (Elizabeth Peña) and his work-comes-first executive wife (Messing). Spanglish jokes aside, some family dynamics are universal.
