Nacho Libre
USA 2006
Directed by Jared Hess
Running time 90 minutes
Rated PG

Reviewed by
Bernard Hemingway
2.5 stars


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).
