If you know anyone eating eagle eggs, be forewarned: They may soon be flying through the air as a masked, half-naked wrestler.
Nacho (Jack Black) cooks meals for orphans at a small-town Mexican monastery. But his food budget is squat. Then he sees a Lucha Libre wrestler - a Mexican professional wrestler - in the streets, which inspires him and his buddy Esqueleto (Hctor Jimnez) to don masks and capes as a way to earn money for grocery shopping.
Nacho also hopes improving the children's diet will win the heart of a nun, Sister Encarnacin (Ana de la Reguera).
Directed by Jared Hess, the co-creator of "Napoleon Dynamite," "Nacho Libre" definitely has a familiar feel. It seems a bit funny at first, and then becomes more and more hilarious as you encounter Nacho's bad gas or Esqueleto's conclusion that Nacho's losing streak is a result of fatness rather than lack of piety. As with "Napolean Dynamite," you probably won't get it until you see the movie.
