Nacho LibreUSA 2006
Directed by Jared Hess
Running time 90 minutes
Coming from the team that brought you the wonderful School of Rock
, Jack Black and Mick White, and Jared Hess, director of the incomparable Napoleon Dynamite
, Nacho Libre
is a significant disappointment, being at best mildly enjoyable silliness. Hess does lend the film the occasional moment of, mainly food-related, humour but for the most part the film is indistinguishable from innumerable similar variants on the wacky adventures of a pair of loveable chronic losers and will only appeal to die-hard fans of Black's comedic persona, here incarnated as a friar at a Mexican orphanage with a passion for wrestling and a pretty nun (Ana de la Reguera).
