I saw this movie and it's great and all. Making a trip that causes the characters to break tradition, culture, and other rules, etc., etc. But here's the thing. As I watched it and gathered all the details, one movie popped into my head. Y Tu Mama Tambien that won international raves not so long ago with Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna starring and directed by the great Alfonso Cuaron. Two men making a trip from Guadalajara to Oaxaca with a slightly older and more experienced lady. All the incidents during this trip caused them to break so many moral and ethic codes that are held by religious Mexicans. Very, very deep. This movie does the same. Good performance by both but I'm kind of bummed by this movie because it seems that this movie is a result of plagiarism from an original, indie, Mexican movie. I think Indonesian entertainment should do better and be more creative and ORIGINAL instead of just being copycats. We have the talent, why not try to think harder and make something of our own?
