If you know me, then you know I enjoy a movie about a preist that moonlights as a mexican luchador as much as the next guy, and “Nacho Libre” is one of those movies. Jack Black is the star and ball of energy in this movie whose childhood dream was to be a famed Mexican luchador, but he has grown up in an orphanage and is now the resident cook and part-time monk.
This movie was directed and co-written by Jared Hess of “Napoleon Dynamite” fame and I have to say that I laughed consistently at this movie. Hector Jimenez steals almost every scene he is in as Nacho’s tag team partner, Esqueleto. The pace does slow briefly towards the middle, but this Nickelodeon Films (yes, the kid’s channel) is family friendly and will have you cheering “Nachooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!”
