Goofs

During the fight sequence between Ramses and Nacho towards the end of the movie, Nacho is knocked down and Ramses pulls him back up by his hair. Ramses then punches him once or twice, and then goes to knee him in the face. When he does this, you can see that Ramses knee never makes contact with Nacho's. It is actually several inches away.

A great laugh and a lot of fun!
13 June 2006 | by (los angeles, ca) – See all my reviews

I saw this at the LA premiere at the Chinese Mann Theater. The audience was laughing so much at times, it was hard to hear the film. Jack Black may at times go over the top but he more than makes up for it with some moments of real genius. Besides the obvious jokes there's an intelligent, awkward humor here for those who look for it. Some critics are saying the plot is too predictable. C'mon. This is often an issue with critics trying to take storytelling in comedies too seriously. If a comedy succeeds in making you laugh all the way through, who the heck cares? Were you going to this movie to feel suspense or to pee your pants laughing? If the latter, you'll love this film.
