Y Tu Mama Tambien

Factual error: Ana's mother, "a French divorcée," according to the movie, teaches at cepe, which is a college within the National Autonomous University of Mexico specifically for foreign students. However, I attended cepe, and non-native Spanish speaking teachers would not have been allowed to teach there, as the entire point of cepe was to introduce the Spanish language and Mexican history/culture to foreign students.
