Quotes

Chancho: Nacho! Where are you going?
Nacho: There is no place for me in this world. I don't belong out there, and I don't belong in here. So I'm going out into the Wilderness. Probably, to die.
Chancho: Well, you might need this
[Gives Nacho the sword]
Chancho: My mother gave it to me before she died. It was her lucky machete. You can have it.

Nacho Libre
25 June 2006 | by (Manitoba, Canada) – See all my reviews

Nacho Libre Jack Black......a guitarist, singer, rocking out for the School Of Rock, and many other parts. Now.....he is a man of god....who happens to become a wrestler.

Now just the way Jack Black tries to be a Mexican is great. His little Mexican accent is hilarious. At times you can't really understand what he's saying, but his actions and his words are great. The other people were very funny too, especially cave men midgets

The story is funny as itself too. A man of god wants to become a wrestler to help the orphans of his church. But he needs a tag team parter, so he finds this guy who looks like a twig (who is also hilarious) and they fight together. They have no clue how to wrestler, so they get beat pretty much every time. There is also some random fat kid....who some how has a machete....

Overall, the movie is really hilarious, and you should really go see it.
