Aroview: Although quirky this is an altogether 'straighter' followup to NAPOLEON DYNAMITE for dir. Jared Hess, steering Jack Black through the cock-eyed tale of a Mexican monastery chef - his specialty is porridge topped with broken corn chips - who becomes entranced with the idea of becoming a famous masked wrestler: 'Nacho'.
Joining forces with an incredibly skinny and equally incompetent partner, Black ends up being beaten by all and sundry (including a team of midgets). Deadpanning its way through the quaint mock-heroics of the wrestling genre, this manages to dole out some crazed slapstick without ever losing its balance.

4 stars (Very Good) A monastery cook, Ignacio, takes his day job of feeding the orphan children most seriously but, by night, he dons stretchy pants and becomes Nacho Libre - hoping to win the affections of a new nun. An unlikely hero, you have to love him.~GenXGirl
