Freedom, which in terms of moviemaking can be said to be the filmmaker’s refusal to fear risk, is the key to [the film]… The fearlessness of Y tu mamá también isn’t Cuarón’s alone. It also exists in the offhand bravery of the three lead performances. For the movie to work, the actors have to be as free and unembarrassed on-screen as their characters are, and there isn’t a false note among them.

A genuine rarity: a sex comedy with brains. Even rarer, one with smart politics—so unobtrusive you may not notice—and wonderful acting… It’s not difficult to understand why this movie has been a smash success in Mexico, especially with teenagers; few films deal with teenage hormones, Latin machismo, and the complexities of friendship in such a refreshing way. The movie keeps surprising you and stays with you long after it’s over.
