Review: Nacho Libre

Director: Jared Hess

Starring: Jack Black

Year: 2006

Genre: Comedy

Rated: PG

Length: 92 min.

IMDB Summary: Berated all his life by those around him, a monk follows his dream and dons a mask to moonlight as a Luchador (Mexican wrestler).

As if a monk wanting to become a wrestler isn't zany enough, Nacho Libre features a bony fighter named "Esqueleto" (skeleton), a pretty nun who is the object of Nacho's affections, a pudgy kid who offers Nacho a machete and an impromptu "baptism" in a locker room. Jared Hess takes no prisoners with his latest comedy flick. Although not as much of a cult classic as Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre has more of a plot and more likeable characters. As a monk, Nacho is faced with a tough choice between honoring the wishes of the brothers or entering the ring as a Luchador. It's amusing to watch Nacho's decision at the end of the movie. With a plethora of one-liners, slapstick comedy and situational humor, Nacho Libre is sure to elicit laughter.

For Parents:
Very mild crude humor
