* HilariousInHindsight: Tenoch thinks about Creator/SalmaHayek during the masturbation scene. Later in 2002, Diego Luna has a brief sex scene with her in ''Film/{{Frida}}''.
* HoYay: Kind of the point. The fact that the boys regularly get naked and masturbate together is just {{Foreshadowing}}.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: 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).
