John & Becky’s Movie Review Of Nacho Libre

Nacho PosterBecky and I took the kids to see Nacho Libre last Wednesday. AMC theaters have a deal that on Wednesday nights you get free popcorn with your Movie Watcher card. Keep that in mind for taking your kids to the movies. The Fandango website at Nacho Libre describes the movie as follows:

Jack Black stars as Ignacio (friends call him Nacho), a Mexican cook who moonlights as a lucha libre wrestler to raise money for an orphanage in this comedy from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite and the writer of School of Rock.

The Review

Like Napoleon Dynamite, Nacho Libre is such a stupid movie that it’s quite funny. The kids all thought it was a funny movie and there were a few scenes where we were wondering if it was age appropriate, but overall it’s definitely a kid’s film.

There are a few parts of the movie that are pretty mean-spirited and it’s not a film of non-stop laughs. It’s just really silly and I think that there will be plenty of people repeating lines from this film for some time. Jack Black is funny as always and there are some really funny parts of the movie, especially if you have any sort of Catholic or wrestling background.

Becky and I thought it was more of a rental, but the kids thought it was worth the trip.
