Well.
Where to begin... I dislike Jack Black. Well, used to anyway. Hated School of Rock and never bothered with Tenacious D.
Then I saw this movie at the Cinema.
Nacho Libre.
Ok ok, not going to be everyone's cup of tea but boy, I love it. I love everything about. There are so many GREAT one liners dotted throughout the movie too, barely a day goes by without me crying out "Nachoooo" or "I believe in Science".
See, none of that will make any sense to you until you see this movie.
I really do love it.
As for it now being on blu ray, great. The colors are fab, Ramsey looks bigger than ever, Steven looks more of a tramp.
You'll either love it or hate. Go on, take a chance.

Nacho (Jack Black) is a young man who was raised in a monastery in Mexico and now works there as the cook. Fueled by his passion for wrestling, he dons a mask and cape and picks up a partner to compete in a local Lucha Libre tournament to try for the $200 prize so he can buy better food for the kids and achieve respect. When a new nun, Sister Encarnacion (Ana de la Reguera), arrives at the monastery, he tries to win her adoration as well while attempting to prove that being a Luchador isn't a sin and win the grand prize at a battle royal tournament so he can buy a bus for the kids.

When I heard that Jack Black would be playing a Mexican Friar who moonlighted as a wrestler in Jared Hess' next project I got very happy, because I knew this would be a funny movie. The trailers for the film advertised exactly what this movie was, and that was pure physical comedy. The story is about Nacho, a Friar who wants the fame and fortune that is associated with being a luchadore after living the same old life over and over each day. He then realizes that this journey to become a professional wrestler is not for himself but for the orphans whom he looks after and cooks for at the orphanage. The movie is basically Jack Black running around with his shirt off for an hour and a half while sporting a fake mustache and a funny Mexican accent. While the majority of the comedy in the film is physical, there are some hilarious lines in the film that are delivered with the right spunk by Black. There are also some great physical scenes in and outside the ring that shows just how great of a physical comedian Black is. The movie is incredibly stupid, but it's also so very funny. If you enjoy pure silly comedy executed perfectly then this movie is just the thing you need.

Another quasi-indie hit that was really always set for success due to the inclusion of the comedy antics of Jack Black. This is closer in tone to Be Kind Rewind and it is a testament to Mr Black that these otherwise under-the-radar gems would go unnoticed if not for his involvement. But these kinds of films were always where he cut his teeth as an actor and he should be duty-bound to champion their obvious worth. That said, the film itself is no classic but it does exactly what it should: it's very funny and it's very quirky.

Wonderfully shot and acted it feels like a conventional heartwarmer, which it is in some ways. But it's the oddness that offsets this and makes it funny. It is the classic deadpan style that Black has adopted for this and it works as most of the laughs are at him trying to be serious. The triumph of the film is the charcter's stalwart adherence to his goal and his simple kindness that ultimately overcomes all obstacles. So we may laugh but he wins in the end.

But even on a truly base level, it's just a really funny film.

His best serious role is in Peter Jackson`s King Kong as Carl Denham. His best comedy role must be NACHO. It is really funny and has it`s touching moments. I highly recommend it!

Nacho Libre is a ridiculously funny movie. All of my favorite comedies are completely silly, and Nacho Libre is no exception. There is plenty of stuff that makes no sense, as you can pretty much tell from the first "training" scene. But the chemistry is there with the cast and the script is so off-the-wall that you have to be completely lacking a sense of humor to not crack up while watching Nacho Libre. Director Hess does a great job in giving Black freedom to steal the show. The movie depicts a Mexican Priest who has a secret fantasy to be a Luchador (Wrestler). Nacho Libre (Black) attempts the difficult task of living the life of the Luchador as well as the Priest of the orphanage.

You have to appreciate the subtleties! Jack Black uses a lot of physical nuances as punch lines, so you must pay attention or you'll miss the jokes. I don't know much about Mexican wrestling, so I am not aware of how this movie will be accepted by fans of the sport. But it is funny. Do not look to the script or story for any judgment regarding this movie's merit, because the charm lies solely in the acting. Many of the greatest moments were created by a combination of manner and timing, as well as editing of course. My only slight complaint about the film is that sometimes Jack Black is a little too Jack Black and not enough Ignacio. He lays his normal schtick on a bit thick now and then and puts the character and the lucha libre storyline on the backburner. But as a fan of lucha libre I really loved the way it's portrayed in this film. There are some nice action sequences and the last fight scene is really unique and well done. Plus the Human Tornado cameo will have PWG fans marking out.

This movie is obviously a product of Nickelodeon Studios, and the humor will be appreciated by fans of Jimmy Neutron, Sponge bob, and other Nicktoons. If you're a fan of Jack Black and Tenacious D you'll enjoy this one.
