When Carmen is offered a high-profile job in Barcelona, it causes a rift in the family setting. Maribel soon finds herself drawn to a handsome Brazilian student, and Leticia is gaining affection for Orlando (Paul Rodriguez) when her students forge his name on love letters to her. Joining their dinners are a shy single mother, and her obnoxious mother (Raquel Welch) who has her sights set on Martin's affections.
Set with the backdrop of Latino culture and featuring an ensemble cast, Tortilla Soup has an average rating or "Fresh" percentage of 67% on Rotten Tomatoes. Ebert and Roeper gave the film a "two thumbs up" rating.
