On the hit CBS comedy Rob, all hell breaks loose when a white guy (Rob Schneider) gets engaged to a Latina (Claudia Bassols). While Rob is the only show of its kind on the air right now, it isn't the first TV show to tell the story of a Latino married to a non-Latino (remember I Love Lucy?). There have also been several movies that have explored the topic of interracial marriage (both comedies and dramas). Here are 7 movies and TV shows where a Latino married a non-Latino!

For a lot of Latinas who live constantly straddling two cultures, watching America Ferrera in Our Family Wedding, opening in theaters today, March 12, will be kind of like looking in a mirror. She plays Lucia, a modern, independent, ambitious girl—who turns into a wuss when she’s with her traditional Latin family: They don’t know she’s dropping out of law school to pursue a dream, let alone that their angelita lives with her boyfriend and has hot sex on the couch. She is thoroughly relatable.
