"RUDO Y CURSI scores from every angle -- comic, personal and cross-cultural....Cuaron's rich narrative courses through an array of personal obstacles, all of them universal and readily identifiable."
USA Today
05/11/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "It's a pleasure to watch the chemistry and engaging humor between actors who clearly enjoy each other's company....Such is the case with the Mexican stars of RUDO Y CURSI..."
Los Angeles Times
05/08/2009
"[T]he arrival of the puckishly entertaining, fleet-of-foot drama-comedy RUDO Y CURSI deserves a hearty welcome....RUDO Y CURSI pulses with life..."
Entertainment Weekly
05/15/2009
"RUDO Y CURSI is a sly miniaturist pleasure on its own terms, a piquant fable about the bouncing ups and downs of success, failure, competition, and comradeship." -- Grade: B+
New York Times
05/08/2009
"RUDO Y CURSI lives up to its name, as do its sweet and scrappy heroes....With a winning measure of swagger and style."
Chicago Sun-Times
05/13/2009
3 stars out of 4 -- "This isn't a sports movie, but a human comedy, and depends on the effortless chemistry between Luna and Garcia Bernal, who evoke, like real brothers, the ability to love and hate each other and push all the right buttons."
A.V. Club
05/07/2009
"RUDO Y CURSI begins as delightful satire of the tackiness and crass excess of the nouveau riche, blessed with the same loose, improvisational, French New Wave-inspired chemistry of Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN." -- Grade: B
Rolling Stone
05/28/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Soccer provides the backdrop for this rowdy, ramshackle comedy....[G]ood-natured fun..."
Uncut
06/18/2009
4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n agreeably ramshackle football farce, directed by Cuaron's screenwriting partner and brother, that still says a surprising amount about the state of South America..."
