MOVIE REVIEW:Nacho Libre
Jack Black really isn't at all funny in this movie. It's got a few
scenes which are pretty funny, but most of the jokes are played out and
just not even funny. Though the facial expressions are funny (more than
the one-liners) I wasn't expecting much from the storyline but what I
got was even less. Some of the wrestling sequences are alright and are
well-filmed, but as a whole I just didn't think this movie delivered.
Some scenes are overly done intentionally to get a laugh, but in many
(if not all) of these scenes they just completely miss their mark.
Nacho, for some reason, has a tendency to pass gas at any opportune
time (and there are many in the film). I'm sure this is an example of
something that is supposed to be funny, but it just doesn't work.
Also, this has to be one of the most predictable movies I have seen. It
was predictable that he would end up getting that girl, predictable
that he would enter the tournament, and was predictable that he would
end up winning the whole thing and receive money in the end. Its been
done many times before…way too predictable for me. And why was the
colour that bad? i looked as if the movie was shot way before the
if u like dumb & dumber, you will like this….i did.
if u like jack black, you will like this movie, if u think he's an
idiot, don't bother to watch it.
it is a stupid/slapstick comedy that should make you laugh, maybe not
every scene, but enough to keep u watching like will Farrell's movies.
its not hangover, which I'm one of a few who didn't think that was a
funny movie, well for only 20mins. if you're looking for an clever
comedy, this is not it and it never was meant to be one.
just make sure you're in the right frame of mind and had a couple of
beers b4 u watch it.
A lot of times funny, sometimes not as funny and the actual
wrestling-scenes wasn't to amusing for me, then again I find wrestling
kind of corny.
JACK BLACK is pretty solid in the lead though as the Mexican/scandivian
monk whom has dreams of becoming a great luchador (mexican wrestler).
Not much to say really it's a very simple movie, which kind of feels
like it's slightly too long for it's own good which might be weird
because it's "only" 90 minutes long, but there were some drawn out
scenes that could've been shortened for pace-reasons.
JARED HESS is the director and the movie he did prior to this one was
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE, although somewhat funny not up in NAPOLEON
OK, let me say up front that I come from the older generation of
comedies. Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, When Harry Met Sally, all the way
up to & including Airplane. Nacho Libre presents a new & very different
style of humour. You don't get big punchlines, witty comebacks or
rapid-fire dialogues. If I had to describe it, I'd say it's "deadpan"
to an extreme. You really have to key in on subtle signals like facial
expressions, odd phrases, or just situational weirdness to understand
Not expecting that, I watched this movie all the way through and only
laughed twice. I kept waiting for punchlines that never came.
After watching it, I came to the IMDb message board and read through
the thread of "Funniest Lines". Sure enough, I didn't get the jokes
there either, but seeing how everyone was cracking up, I realized that
those lines were funny.
After that, I found myself talking to people in everyday life, quoting
Nacho Libre and getting big laughs. Suddenly I think I get it. I'll
probably watch this film again, knowing what to expect, and I bet I'll
get a few big lols out of it. Maybe even a rofl or 2.
