Chicago Sun-Times
One of those movies where "after that summer, nothing would ever be the same again." Yes, but it redefines "nothing."

Echoes the unmistakable freshness and excitement of the Nouvelle Vague, the sense of joy in being alive and making movies, that made those works distinctive and unforgettable.

That rare thing, a Hollywood teen flick transfigured into something like pubescent scripture: In the beginning, there was lust; in the end, there is knowledge.

Can be taken on many levels, and that's why it works so completely.

Newsweek
The eroticism in Cuaron’s road movie (which broke all box-office records in Mexico) is the real deal: tactile, sexy, psychologically charged.

New York Magazine (Vulture)
The funniest and most emotionally charged erotic road movie since Bertrand Blier's "Going Places."

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
"You're so lucky to live in Mexico," Luisa says. "Look at it -- it breathes with life." So does Y Tu Mama Tambien, both the pant of passion and shuddering sigh of regret.

New York Daily News

If this sounds like an old-fashioned sex comedy, it is -- sexy, for sure, and funny, in wild spurts.

The New Yorker
There is plenty to inflame in this picture and nothing to corrupt. [18 Mar 2002. p.152]
