Nacho Libre

MOVIE:  Nacho Libre

NUTSHELL:  A friar in Mexico moonlights as a wrestler. Wacky japery and cooking with fresh ingredients ensues.

GOOD THINGS:  Jack Black, characters named Chancho and Sister Encarnacion, Efren Ramirez, Hector Jimenez, Peter Stormare, corn popsicles, Ana de la Reguera, natty duds and Oaxaca

BAD THINGS:  Scatalogical junk excess

FEATURES:  Troy Gentile, who will hopefully make a career out of playing a young Jack Black.

UNCOMFORTABLE MOMENTS:  The early cooking scenes make my inner Martha Stewart clutch her pearls and those little wrassllin’ um… hairy things will haunt my dreams.

NOTABLE:  Either this makes you laugh or it doesn’t. A good gauge is how you feel about Napoleon Dynamite and you can also factor in how you feel about Jack Black.

BEST PART:  Esqueleto under attack and still holding corn

BEST LINE:  I used to really like Ramses. I wanted to become him! But it turns out, he’s a real douche.

CROWNS:  4 out of 5
