Thoroughly likable, it never resorts to sentimental cliches or moralistic epiphanies.

The film is, of course, not all sex, and, indeed, brims with observant intelligence.

There is a family movie within the gay subtext of "Bear Cub" that is a draw for the sophisticated film-goer.

[Cachorro provides] 100 minutes of wonderfully realised characters, many laughs, some tears and much valuable insight.

Albaladejo takes a warm approach to his characters, from Pedro's boisterous circle of like-minded gay pals (known as 'bears' for their stocky builds and facial hair) to Bernardo's paternal grandmother.

Had the story had more oomph to it, its stance would have seemed a lot more important as an artistic issue. But as things sit, it's an abstract plus indeed.

The movie has a good deal of warmth and humor and has a certain liveliness to it... not a perfect movie, but one that will touch the cuddly bear in each of us.

Though it has all the makings of a trite, dogmatic TV movie about gay adoption, it manages to maintain a sense of humor, subtlety and restraint throughout.

Bearded, burly and even balding, these 'bears' are a refreshing change from the depilated, youth-obsessed men of Queer as Folk.
