Jack Black is Nacho Libre

Some madcap zaniness from JB and Jared Hess.

This looks iffy. Maybe I'm just not in the mood but I didn't laugh a lot.

I'm sure there's a few laughs in there but I think I'll wait for rental.

Is this supposed to be a comedy? I didn't even crack a smile and I can't see how anyone would find it funny either.

This look really bad.

Of course it's a comedy. Someone got hit in the head and/or fell down. That's how you know.

It looks pretty bizarre in that innocent way. I like the santo films, and I loved Napoleon Dynamite so I am game.

Looks like the director of Napolean Dynamite is a one hit wonder.

I'm a fan of Lucha Libre and the Santo movies so I'll give this movie a chance.

I like just about anything Mike White does, so I am definitely seeing this...the fact that Hess and Black are involved is just icing on the cake. The trailer is a bit bizarre, but hopefully it'll be good.

I didn't like Napoleon Dynamite but this could be better. Still, sadly, from the trailer it looks like Hess's laborious sense of humor hasn't changed much. Hopefully Black will instill some much-needed anarchy into the proceedings.

Jack Black is awesome! Computerman wouldn't be as hilarious as it is if he's not in it.

With the triple threat of Hess, Black, and White; what could go wrong? However, the trailer isn't that good....

Sadly, I'd probably take Napoleon Dynamite 2: Dance Harder over this.

Kind of amusing in Airborne. Other than that, not the tiniest bit.

If this starred someone else, I'd see it.

I'm definitely looking forward to this. I thought the trailer was hilarious. Could this be the sleeper hit of the Summer?
