Jack Black, tenacious in tight pants of various shades, plays the titular Nacho, a kid raised in a Mexican orphanage who dreams of becoming a luchadore, with a superhero's mask obscuring his round face in the wrestling ring. The entirety of the movie deals with his sneaking out of the orphanage, where he's a cook charged with doling out black-bean gruel topped with stale nacho remnants, to wrestle with a scrawny thief named Esqueleto (Hector Jimenez). There is a love interest too -- a nun named Sister Encarnación, played by Mexican soap opera star Ana de la Reguera, who looks exactly like Paz Vega and Penelope Cruz. See it today and forget it tomorrow -- that's the mantra of Nacho Libre, which has some memorable lines (most delivered by its supporting players, chief among them the so-skinny-he's-almost-transparent Jimenez) that want to be catchphrases, if only they didn't slip from your grasp.
