Like most foreign movies, we adults were able to view a movie with sexual content as adults unlike some teenager. A little too much like an American roadtrip movie for my tastes but it was funny in more parts than most.

After all the hype, I was disappointed. Pretty shallow, the film was aimed at the high school crowd, lots of sex, drugs and rock and roll.

Pretty shallow, the film was aimed at the high school crowd, lots of sex, drugs and rock and roll. Does anybody really want to see a couple of 18 year olds peeing, smoking pot, and playing with themselves? The only reason I even gave it a 6 was the interesting look at the various social classes in Mexico; and the travelog quality of driving thru little seen parts of the country. In short, a Mexican Waynes World with lots of sex. Expand

This movie seems to be liked more for what it isn't than what it is. Yes its frankness about sex gives it a charm missing from most American sex comedies, but calling it the best film of the year because it is smarter than Sorority Boys This movie seems to be liked more for what it isn't than what it is. Yes its frankness about sex gives it a charm missing from most American sex comedies, but calling it the best film of the year because it is smarter than Sorority Boys is like saying I should go to the olympics because I can run faster than a guy with two broken legs. Yes the acting is good. Verdu gives about as good a performance as the narration (which seems to explain every one of her character's emotions) and her constantly changing motivation will let her. Nothing else about this movie, however, is even adequate. The narration is annoying and pointless, one time even crossing into unintentionally funny. The ruminations on socioeconomic conditions in Mexico was so tenuously connected to the plot that it didn't make the movie seem deep (which is what I'm assuming is what they were going for), but rather just plain pretentious. This is the most overrated movie I've seen in a long time. Expand

This movie gets in your face but only in an attempt to blcok you from the fact that there is really nothing behind it. When making a movie about ideas that everyone is allready familiar with it takes more than honesty to be convincing, but This movie gets in your face but only in an attempt to blcok you from the fact that there is really nothing behind it. When making a movie about ideas that everyone is allready familiar with it takes more than honesty to be convincing, but also a perspective on the matter that the audience had not yet been exposed to. This movie did nothing of the such. Expand
