Sports, celebrity and small-town dreamers get a funny, colorful treatment in Rudo y Cursi, which reunites Y Tu Mama Tambien writer Carlos Cuaron (also directing for the first time), his brother, director Alfonso Cuaron (just producing here) and co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna.

Sports, celebrity and small-town dreamers get a funny, colorful treatment in Rudo y Cursi, which reunites Y Tu Mama Tambien writer Carlos Cuaron (also directing for the first time), his brother, director Alfonso Cuaron (just producing here) and co-stars Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna.

This time, Bernal and Luna are brothers Tato and Beto, who both dream of fame and wealth far away from their poverty-stricken lives in a Mexican village.

By chance, an opportunity to fulfill their wildest dreams arrives in the form of Batuta (Guillermo Francella), an oily but entertaining soccer scout who sees them play on a local field.

Cuaron's handling of the new sets of frustrations and barriers revealed to each and how they deal with them isn't entirely smooth, but he keeps things energized and low-impact, and his balls-out co-stars are always a pleasure to watch.
