November 7, 2012
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.
January 1, 2011
A sweet, offbeat movie about caring for others.
August 30, 2009
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.
April 9, 2007
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.
March 15, 2007
Director Jared Hess' weapon of choice is his innocence.
March 1, 2007
Physical violence, silliness and gross-out moments (suspect gooey substances flow frequently) abound, but Nacho Libre is not without its occasional charms.
January 1, 2007
Gives you more reason than ever to love Black's death scene in 1997's The Jackal.
December 13, 2006
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.
September 27, 2006
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.

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.
September 8, 2006
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.
August 21, 2006
Nacho typical comedy

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
