Originally aired 4/25/09
These three friends have reunited for the first time since 2001's Y Tu Mama Tambien made their international reputations and established them as important contributors to contemporary cinema. Now Carlos Cuarón, who co-wrote Mama but left directing duties to his brother Alfonso, has written and directed the tragicomic sibling study Rudo y Cursi. Gael García Bernal and Diego Luna explain why they urged Cuarón to expand his original concept from one soccer player to two brothers and why they haven't yet become a familiar screen duo in the tradition of Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau or Abbott & Costello (29 minutes).
