Much better than most comedies; you do have to have a sense of humor to enjoy it, so if you rarely laugh, don't go to this movie. Kind hearted and humorous portrayal of Mexican culture; if you have lived in Mexico as I have, you should enjoy this. Also it's refresing to see a movie that can be humorous without resorting to overt sexual conversations.

It's good to know that farce is alive and well in the world. Since the mid 90's it feels like film makers have lost their grip on truly great weird comedy. Movies that speak to the few and turn off the rest. It seems that even as the tools to unlock our imaginations get flashier and flashier, and special effect budgets grow and grown, American film grow static and stale. Then when it seems like all hope is lost, a film like NACHO LIBRE comes along.

Somewhere in Mexico, a young priest named Nacho (Jack Black) longs to be recognized. He's tired of serving the same bland food to the young boys in his charge. He's tired of being disrespected by the other priests. He longs to be a luchadore (a Mexican wrestler), and to gain the affections of the stunning Sister Encarnacion (Ana del la Regura). Then when all hope is lost he teams up with a new friend named Esquelta, and takes the Mexican wrestling world by storm. Will the orphan boys get better food? Will Nacho win the heart of Sister Encarnacion? Will he lose everything he has, on a quest to become a great warrior? Giving this movie its due will provide those answers and more. The movie not perfect. It's a little overly long and some of the jokes fall flat on their face. But there is an earnestness and a sweet gentility in the film that will win you over. You cannot enter this movie with the wrong attitude and if you don't like weird movies its not for you. But if you let it entertain you and if you give into the fact that it really bizarre, it will work. You have to take every scene with grain of salt and logic must be thrown out the window. But if you turn off that part of your brain that strives for everything to be plausible, than this film will entertain.

OMG, this is a very silly movie but fun and with a heart. So many lines have become stock with my children, ages 15 and 7. We cannot eat chips and salsa without getting the giggles about 'the Lord's chips' (pronounced 'cheeps'). We also loved 'Napoleon Dynamite' as well as 'School of Rock', so that explains a lot of why the movie is such a good fit for us. But, when you think about it, a movie that can repeatedly entertain a 7 year old, a 15 year old and a, well, mom, that's quite a feat!

Like Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre is going to have people on both sides of the fence, leaving few sitting on it. Count me on the "for" side - in fact, this is the funniest, and one of the most heart warming movies of 2006. After a number of disappointments, it was an absolute pleasure to sit through a movie with a script that sings, characters that one wants to root for from the beginning and a soundtrack that can't help but keep a smile on your face.

Jack Black is in Shallow Hal mode here, alternating between disgusting and endearing, and cracking the audience up at every turn. A lot of reviews have mentioned this is not much more than Black running around half naked and sporting a faux Mexican personnage. It is so much more than that. Black's "Nacho" is a classic tortured spirit, caught up in the ordinariness of his mundane life as a Friar at an orphanage but dreams of stardom as a luchadore . . . and, of course, love.

The love interest here is a little complicated as it's a nun Nacho's in love with; Sister Sister Encarnación, portrayed by the stunning Ana de la Reguera (who strongly resembles a younger Penelope Cruz).

Nacho's sidekick features an amazingly hilarious physical actor, the rubbery faced, thin-as-a-noodle, Hector Jimenez as Esqueleto. His screams alone are worth the price of admission.

There are sight gags throughout of the highest - and lowest - order, touches of the bizarre that echo Mr. Hess's first major effort; combined with an at times almost childlike sense of wonderment and look at life.

This is a major American filmmaker's sophmore effort and it is a glorious, wonderful, big smelly valentine of a movie. You couldn't ask for more from a summer flick than Nacho has to offer. See it!

Nachoooooooooooo Libre was just the break that I needed after a rough week at work. This movie had me laughing uncontrollably for almost the entire time. I have not seen a silly-funny movie like this in quite some time. If you are (were) into wrestling and all the 80's stuff growing up, than you'll definitely get the references that are in this movie.

Bowling for Movies Score: 204 of 300

What is Bowling for Movies you might ask - it's a score that I, just your average dude, have come up with to rate and score movies. I gotta lot time on my hands and I watch movies - many MANY movies. Using the latest technology and a mixture of pseudo and quasi science, I have developed a formula (which literally has nothing to do with bowling) to capture the pure essence of Hollywood magic... displayed as a score ranging from 0 to 300. A score of 108 would be a "just ok, not particularly good / bad" movie, where a score of 192 would tell you it was a very good movie. Now, break 200 and you've got something really special. Throw too many "gutterballs" will land you under 100 and well - you get the idea. :]

Nacho Libre - we upgraded from DVD to Blu Ray

Movie Explanation (no-there is too much, let me sum up):
Loosely based on the true life of famed Mexican wrestler, Friar Storm (aka Rev. Sergio Gutiérrez Benítez), this Jack Black extravaganza takes place in a South of the Boarder town. Ignacio (Black) a friz-fro man of the cloth and son of a Mexican Deacon and a Scandinavian Lutheran Missionary, serves as a cook at a local orphanage but dreams of becoming a wrestler (with the all too altruistic thought of using the winnings to improve the food at the orphanage and get a bus for field trips). When the tortilla chips go missing Ignacio tracks down the thief - a wild "raised by wolves" looking dude with questionable personal hygiene - and the two team up (blink blink) secretly and take the wrestling world by storm, um, well - not really by storm but they do get stomped.
