Bear Cub casually pulls off an amazing feat--combining innocent childhood nostalgia and graphic sexuality.
75
The film's ambitions are laudable, and it manages to be touching, funny and true to life. It seems ungrateful to ask for anything more.
75
A compassionate, life-affirming Spanish comedy-drama.

Miami Herald
Cachorro's main flaw is in its ending, which seems somewhat abrupt and unfinished, but these characters have become so endearing by then that it hardly seems to matter.
75
Chicago Tribune
The audience gets all of the love, with none of the guilt. It's enough to give you faith in family dramas again.
70
Isn't just a "gay movie." There are just gay people in it. Anyone can get into this lovable film.
67
Austin Chronicle
Purrs with uncommon emotion.

Pedro is what a friend of mine calls a ''macho Iberico," which refers to a certain type of cocky, insensitive Spanish man.
60
Bearded, burly and even balding, these "bears" are a refreshing change from the depilated, youth-obsessed men of "Queer as Folk."

New York Post
If you're thinking of taking the kids to Bear Cub because the title sounds like something they'd enjoy -- don't!
