A comprehensive, alphabetical list of films released in the United States that have been condemned by the Catholic Church since…
He's not lean. He's not mean. He's nacho average hero.
Nacho Libre is loosely based on the story of Fray Tormenta ("Friar Storm"), aka Rev. Sergio Gutierrez Benitez, a real-life Mexican Catholic priest who had a 23-year career as a masked luchador. He competed in order to support the orphanage he directed. The producers are Jack Black, David Klawans, Julia Pistor, and Mike White.
You get all the Jared Hess style you are probably expecting but you also get a TON of Jack Black playing himself. It is kind of gimmicky but if you like the gimmick then you'll find this film to be hilarious. It's an original idea with a surprisingly strong amount of plot.
"Get that corn outta my face!"
I haven't seen this since in the theater back in 2006, I remember liking it so I decided to try it out again. Nacho Libre is entertaining and really funny at times, but I found that the comedic parts start to become more and more scattered as the movie goes on. I almost always find Jack Black amusing to watch, so I definitely still enjoyed it regardless.
Also, I was very surprised to see 'Biaggio' from The Kings of Summer in this. It kind of threw me off for a minute and I kept waiting for him to say strange and ridiculous things.
If you're looking for fart jokes and racial stereotypes then this film is for you.
After all these years, this is still that one movie I put on when I've had a long stressful work week and I need to just feel silly and laugh. Actually, this and Zoolander.
It's a little more clear now that the humor of Nacho Libre is somewhat inconsistent. Jared and Jerusha Hess have a preternatural understanding of how to use Jack Black properly, but there seems to be an even ratio of genuine outbursts of awkward, surprising hilarity to jokes that beat the dead horse of "it's funny because it's in a Spanish accent". Not the best thing in a film that is already dangerously skirting stereotype. Still, the film's goofy, boyish zeal is incredibly endearing, and I think…
"Hey...take it easy". Another potentially controversial review: Jared Hess' Nacho Libre. I'm gonna say that I absolutely adore this film. But I totally understand why people dislike it. The humor is not for everyone. But this film is sorta worshiped in my mixed Latino family. I'm Cuban, but I have many Mexican cousins, who swear by this film and we have fun quoting it, sometimes at random. It's definitely one of the most quotable films around.
The casting of Jack Black had the potential to be offensive, but he gives such a fun, expressive, and laughably bonkers performance that you can't help but laugh and love him in the role. It helped that the rest of the cast was Latino,…

I do not understand why you always have to be judging me because I only believe in science.
pecs and nuns
Gets better every time.
Perhaps not one of the best movies by Jack Black, but it was watchable - this one time, wouldn't watch again. There were some funny things in this movie even though overall this was quite bad. My favourite scenes were the ones where the main pair were on the party of a wrestler and the totally insane wrestling victory in the end. Ana de la Reguera, who played a nun, was so beautiful and a delight to my eyes. I liked the music in this movie.
Ok. Guilty pleasure for me. As a child, I found this movie hilarious. Does it stand up to today? Eh. But it is a good comedy wrestling movie.
Le tengo mucho cariño a esta película. No sési es porque la vi con mi hermano cuando éramos ninis y sólo nos dedicábamos a ver películas, o porque hay ciertas cosas que sí me hacen reír muy acá (que el compañero de Nacho crea "en la ciencia": WOW).
Super kitsch, incluso irreverente, me entretiene bastante.
Jack Black is a genius in this movie.
A lot of people might not like this movie, but it has a special place in my heart for many personal reasons. I love every second of this movie and its bizarre comedy. It has such a nostalgic feeling to me, mainly because Nacho Libre (along with a few other comedy films) are a full representation of my childhood. I'd suggest checking Nacho Libre out fo shizzle.
These are my top 100 favorite films of all time.
