Mexican-born, New York-based filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón directed this Mexican box-office smash hit about a pair of randy upper-class buddies that sparked some controversy for its frank depiction of drug use and sexual exploration. With their respective girlfriends away in Europe, Julio (Gael García Bernal) and his upper-class friend Tenoch (Diego Luna) are looking forward to a summer full of drink, drugs, and cheap meaningless sex. During a wedding, they meet Luisa (Maribel Verdú) -- the 28-year-old wife of Tenoch's scholarly cousin -- and try to convince her to go on a road trip to… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The funniest and most emotionally charged erotic road movie since Bertrand Blier's Going Places."
‑ Peter Rainer, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Raunchy, smart, ebullient, melancholy, insightful, surprising, funny, frank and sexy as all get-out."
‑ Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune
"... a coming-of-age film with startling emotional depth and complexity, set against the backdrop of class differences in Mexico."
‑ Eric Melin, Lawrence.com
"fresh and alive"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"... an aggressively political movie, a heartbroken testament about a generation without role models or devoted fathers."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"Marvelous, merry and, yes, melancholy film."
‑ Eleanor Ringel Gillespie, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"Part travelogue, part road picture, part meditation on class, mortality and intimacy, this extraordinary little movie might be the perfect harbinger of summer, as astute as it is steamy."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"A sexy and often comical road trip that demonstrates how personal agendas and insecurities sabotage and corrupt not just personal but political ideals."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Not for nothing does a "Harold and Maude" poster turn up. Like Hal Ashby's cult classic, Alfonso Cuarón's film offers, to borrow Spanish-language sass, a chingale to horny-teen genre expectations as a story of sex and separation."
‑ Nick Rogers, Suite101.com
"To everyone who bent over backwards to praise Y Tu Mama as raunchy, spicy, sexy, or hot, here's a novel idea -- skip this mild stuff and rent some honest-to-God porn."
‑ Martin Scribbs, Low IQ Canadian
"A giddy and provocative sexual romp that has something to say."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Easily one of the sexiest and funniest films about class struggle ever made."
‑ Manohla Dargis, L.A. Weekly
"A monumental, transformational motion picture, challenging the viewer and changing the way you think of movies being put together."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Offers a shot of wise, freshly etched character comedy in a time when it's desperately needed."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"The allegorical name of the beach (Mouth of Heaven) is one of several obvious sexual innuendoes of the film but in the fantasy of world Cuaron, they all seem ordinary and predictable."
‑ Moira Sullivan, FilmFestivals.com
