Getting past the sheer unlikeability of the main character proves to be the film's most difficult point.

Pushing the dull Cacho as a chick magnet capable of opening any pair of legs suggests that Cuarón's respect for women has gained serious ground since he was 29.

First released in 1991, Alfonso Cuaron's Solo Con Tu Pareja (Only With Your Partner) is a manic puff of nonsense that plays off the AIDS panic of the preceding decade.

It is hard to fathom how such a talented artist could come up with such a painfully unfunny comedy.

Very much the work of a young filmmaker of obvious talent in need of just a smidgen more discipline, training, and experience.

Sets a tone for Cuaron's later work, including a warm, sensual use of colors and space.

Like Y Tu Mamá También, Alfonso Cuaróns first feature, made 15 years ago, is a rambunctious sex comedy shadowed by mortality.

The film is like a champagne bottle's ricocheting cork: an explosion of poppy camera maneuvers, literary allusions, chatty reiterations, raunchy sex, and spastic flights of fantasy rich in cultural flavor.

Solo Con Tu Pareja is not as mature as Y Tu Mama Tambien, but it is consistently funny.

Cuaron, who cowrote the screenplay with his brother, Carlos, cited Ernst Lubitsch and Woody Allen as influences, but the shadow of Pedro Almodovar's frantic early comedies hangs heavily over the film's farcical complications.

Cuaron demonstrates his capacity as a director. The camera work is impressive, his sense of humor sharp, and the characters are well defined.
