Cuaron demonstrates his capacity as a director. The camera work is impressive, his sense of humor sharp, and the characters are well defined.

Like Y Tu Mamá También, Alfonso Cuaróns first feature, made 15 years ago, is a rambunctious sex comedy shadowed by mortality.

Eric Monder
Film Journal International

It is hard to fathom how such a talented artist could come up with such a painfully unfunny comedy.

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.

Michael Atkinson
Village Voice

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.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid

Sets a tone for Cuaron's later work, including a warm, sensual use of colors and space.

Solo Con Tu Pareja is not as mature as Y Tu Mama Tambien, but it is consistently funny.

Very much the work of a young filmmaker of obvious talent in need of just a smidgen more discipline, training, and experience.

Christopher Null

Getting past the sheer unlikeability of the main character proves to be the film's most difficult point.

A fine first film by Alfonso Cuarón and you can see his talent throughout this oddball comedy.

Good dark comedy. Alfonso Cuarón's first film shows raw talent, that he would later polish in the awesome Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN and the masterpiece CHILDREN OF… More

The films is funny all the time, but sometimes that's just all that it is. Still, it's a nice black farce that at times reminded me of Almodóvar.
Lenny Muggsy
Interesting, quirky film that uses Mexico City's surroundings well.

Pretty fantastic dream sequence in the middle.
