YMMV / Y Tu Mamá También

  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
    • Tenoch thinks about Salma Hayek during the masturbation scene. Later in 2002, Diego Luna has a brief sex scene with her in Frida.
    • The final coda of the movie mentions that the ruling political party would lose the presidential elections few months later (since this affects the aspirations of Tenoch's father), the movie came out a few months before the historical 2000 election in which this exact thing happened. Doubles as foreshadowing.
  • Ho Yay: Kind of the point. The fact that the boys regularly get naked and masturbate together is just Foreshadowing.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not Political?: The movie took place just after many, many cases of showing social injustice in Mexico. Chuy is the most heartbreaking. Oh, and Tenoch has an Aztec name (indicating nationalism) but is circumcised (indicating Americanization).
