Tomas is a very busy fellow and is about to grow much, much busier. He has his current girlfriend in bed in one apartment, and his lady boss in bed in the next one, and is crossing from one to the other on a window ledge. Neither one has figured out what he is up to. His juggling act becomes much more complicated when, on one occasion from the ledge between the two apartments he spots his pretty new neighbor. It's only a matter of time before one or all of these women gives him his richly deserved comeuppance. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cuaron demonstrates his capacity as a director. The camera work is impressive, his sense of humor sharp, and the characters are well defined."
‑ Marta Barber, Miami Herald
"Like Y Tu Mamá También, Alfonso Cuaróns first feature, made 15 years ago, is a rambunctious sex comedy shadowed by mortality."
‑ A.O. Scott, New York Times
"It is hard to fathom how such a talented artist could come up with such a painfully unfunny comedy."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"Cuaron, who cowrote the screenplay with his brother, Carlos, cited Ernst Lubitsch and Woody Allen as influences, but the shadow of Pedro Almodovar's frantic early comedies hangs heavily over the film's farcical complications."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"First released in 1991, Alfonso Cuaron's Solo Con Tu Pareja (Only With Your Partner) is a manic puff of nonsense that plays off the AIDS panic of the preceding decade."
‑ Jan Stuart, Newsday
"Pushing the dull Cacho as a chick magnet capable of opening any pair of legs suggests that Cuarón's respect for women has gained serious ground since he was 29."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"Sets a tone for Cuaron's later work, including a warm, sensual use of colors and space."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"The film is like a champagne bottle's ricocheting cork: an explosion of poppy camera maneuvers, literary allusions, chatty reiterations, raunchy sex, and spastic flights of fantasy rich in cultural flavor."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
"Solo Con Tu Pareja is not as mature as Y Tu Mama Tambien, but it is consistently funny."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"Very much the work of a young filmmaker of obvious talent in need of just a smidgen more discipline, training, and experience."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Getting past the sheer unlikeability of the main character proves to be the film's most difficult point."
‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
