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

Suddenly this careful and patient movie turns cheap and hasty, with unexpected disclosures, desperate curveballs, and crocodile tears. It's not ruinous, but it's not good either.

Purrs with uncommon emotion.

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.

A touching, frank movie about parenting.

The strength of Bear Cub is that it eschews exposition in favor of gradual revelation.

It unfortunately turns downbeat.

A wise, sweet-natured Spanish film.

Bear Cub is much smarter than the average comedy.

Cachorro sets out to prove that not every gay man looks like Montgomery Clift or Rock Hudson-some, in fact, look like Dom DeLuise.
