About the Movie

Jack Black is at his comic best as Ignacio, a disrespected cook at a Mexican monastery that can barely afford to feed the orphans who live there. Inspired by a local wrestling hero, he decides to moonlight as the not-so-famous Luchador "Nacho Libre" to earn money for the monastery -- not to mention the admiration of beautiful nun Sister Encarnacion.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Nacho Libre strikes a delicate balance of whimsy and absurdity that may surprise auds primed to expect wall-to-wall slapstick. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Nacho Libre, naively made kids' stuff, lacks such minor attributes as a decent script and supporting cast. – David Denby, New Yorker, Jun 24, 2006

Rotten: The comedy is hit and miss, with good bits interrupted by dead patches. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: After a promising beginning, Nacho Libre goes off the rails with its over-the-top satire and intentional campiness failing to generate many laughs. – James Berardinelli, ReelViews, Jun 17, 2008
