This movie is racist...my a**
17 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

Honestly people, get over it. Stop being so damn sensitive, suddenly people think everything is racist. People are so busy tripping over themselves trying to be politically correct all the time, it's ridiculous. Nacho Libre is not being racist. It's telling the story of a guy who lived in an orphanage and became a wrestler to save it. Take it for what is it...a movie. Yes, Jack Black's accent is annoying...but guess what...it's a comedy, it's supposed to be one of the things that makes people laugh. It's not supposed to be realistic so stop thinking that it has to be.

Go watch the movie. It's funny and Jack Black is priceless.
