Spanish Language FilmsFor my first Spanish video I watched Y Tu Mama Tambien. I saw this movie on Wednesday night with one of my friends from chemistry class.(a). La Pelicula es muy interesante. La pelicula hablaron muchos de relaciones. La Pelicula es triste y feliz. Julio y Tenoch tuvieron una amistad especial, ellos eran mejores amigos. Pero, en el fin, ellos no vieron al otro mucho.(b). The film was based on two friends who ended up taking a road trip to a made up place they called Heaven's mouth. They made heavens mouth up so that Tenoch's cousin would go away with them, because both of the boys were very attracted to her. Since they do not know where they are going the trip seems long and many things happen to the threesome along the way.

Both fairly similar looking to many of the hotels I have seen in the united states. Tenoch and Julio went out to party one night, ( the way the narrator describe what was going on ) and some of the things that went on sounded like things I have seen or heard on nights that I paint the town.Differences: The design of Tenoches house, it was so Aztec looking, there was a water fountain inside. The wedding was a similarity, but it can also be listed as a difference in the way they celebrated. For the reception, the family and wedding party went to a bull fighting ring, usually we go to a dance hall. When the two friends and Julia sat down at a restaurant Tenoch went to the back to let the women know they were there. They didn't have a hostess or anything waiting to greet them at the front. Also, when they were in the...
