Yet bromance requires an expression of intimacy that always toys with being coded as something other than "straight" male behavior, even as it insists that such intimacy must never be misinterpreted. In Reading the Bromance: Homosocial Relationships in Film and Television, editor Michael DeAngelis has compiled a diverse group of essays that address the rise of this tricky phenomenon and explore the social and cultural functions it serves. Contributors consider selected contemporary film and television texts, as well as the genres that historically inspired them, in order to explore what needs bromance attempts to fulfill in relationships between men—straight or otherwise. Essays analyze films ranging from I Love You, Man to Superbad, Humpday, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, The Hangover, and the Jackass films, and include studies of representative examples in international cinema such as Y tu mama tambien and classic and contemporary films of the Bollywood genre.

I bought a used DVD of Y Tu Mama Tambien the uncut version quite a few months ago, but never quite got around to watching it till recently. The truth splits the difference. Luisa is about to leave them both when they promise they will do things her way. They stumble upon a beach, have some adventures, then get drunk one night with Luisa, are prepared to engage in a threesome, until Luisa simultaneously takes both of them in her mouth. The next day one vomits over his debauchery, they leave Luisa at the beach, return to Mexico City, and part. Anyone expecting anything deeper than this summary bought in to the PR campaign. The acting, by and large, is passable at best.
Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001)
In Mexico, two teenage boys and an attractive older woman embark on a road trip and learn a thing or two about life, friendship, sex, and each other. Og din mor! This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth. Very much in love with this movie.
Which movies best capture the holiday season? Observer film critics choose their sizzling-hot favourites. Beguiled by nights hopping with jazz — electric, alive — conman Tom Ripley Matt Damon finds himself exquisitely tortured by the fickle enthusiasms and casual cruelty of Dickie Greenleaf Jude Law. Perhaps not even Tom can unpick the mess of emotions he feels for Dickie — does he want to have him?
