Nacho Libre Reviews

Luke Goodsell
Empire Magazine Australasia

In a season of smug, telegraphed quirkiness (hello, Little Miss Sunshine), the rambling Nacho Libre, like director Jared Hess' previous Napoleon Dynamite, feels like an original.

Common Sense Media

A sweet, offbeat movie about caring for others.

Makes you stare first in bemusement, then in boredom, finally in slight nausea

Hess has the most languid sense of comic timing since Bill Murray at his peak.

Nacho Libre merely provides some momentary pleasant diversions.

Any production featuring Jack Black in spandex and showing off his belly full of stretch marks should never have made it off the drawing board in the first place.

Director Jared Hess' weapon of choice is his innocence.

Film Journal International

Physical violence, silliness and gross-out moments (suspect gooey substances flow frequently) abound, but Nacho Libre is not without its occasional charms.

Gives you more reason than ever to love Black's death scene in 1997's The Jackal.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

A film with a steady stream of laughter enclosed is a great cure for those with the "World Cup" blues.

There's a fine line between funny and stupid, and director Jared Hess can't find it.

Christianity Today

This is all about Jack Black being Jack Black, funny and well-conceived wrestling action, and catch-you-off-guard comedy. Nacho has all of those things in a headlock.

Christopher Smith
Bangor Daily News (Maine)

Puts another monkey on Jack Black's back, but this time it isn't several stories tall, it doesn't have a thing for blondes and it doesn't famously destroy New York real estate. In this case, it's the script.

It's more outrageous than hilarious, yet Nacho Libre has the same kind of sweet poignancy its filmmaker Jared Hess brought to his 2004 cult hit Napoleon Dynamite.

Nacho typical comedy

Full Review Source: 3BlackChicks Review | Original Score: 5/5

August 21, 2006

Nacho Libre a le mérite d'être une comédie désopilante faisant rire son public par des élans somme toute forts singuliers, mais inspirés, à défaut d'être très subtils

Spectrum (St. George, Utah)

Beyond its sight gags and kitschy camp appeal, 'Nacho Libre' is a comedy that earns its underdog ambitions.

Basically, if you're not already chuckling at the thought of Jack Black wearing a Mexican wrestler's outfit and speaking in a thick Spanish accent then Nacho Libre probably isn't the film for you.

Nacho Libre is all it needs to be--ridiculous from beginning to end.

Easily the best studio confection of the year... kicking ***, taking names, and reminding us all of the joy that going to a big summer movie is supposed to inspire in us.
