This is one hot Mama! Two teen boys with raging adolescent urges and too much time on their hairy hands fall hard for the Older Woman, Maribel Verdú, whom they meet at a family wedding. Betrayed by her husband's infidelities, Verdú accepts the boys' flirtatious offer of a road trip to a secluded--and imaginary--beach. With their lusty, wise and headstrong travel companion in the driver's seat, the backseat boys end up getting everything they fantasized about and much more than they bargained for.
Horny and hornier may not know where they're going, but director Alfonso Cuarón sure does. Taking the road less traveled, he veers this Mexican import far from the Road Trip teen-romp as possible, insightfully exploring the bumpy terrain of passion, politics and maturation with a textured script and top-notch cast. You might think twice before dragging your own mama or papa on this wild ride, but it's definitely a journey worth taking.
