Trivia

The dreamy song heard during Esqueleto & Candidia's encounter is "Half Forgotten Daydreams" by John Cameron from his 1974 album The Sound Gallery Vol 1. Like Brian Bennet, who he's worked with, he composed "stock" soundtrack music for various film genres, and normally not credited. See more »

Goofs

Nacho tosses a handful of chips into the alley to entice Stephen to come out. The tossing would likely spread the chips all over the alley. When Stephen is eating the chips they are in a nice little pile. See more »

Quotes

Nacho: Beneath the clothes, we find a man... and beneath the man, we find his... nucleus.

This movie is racist...my a**
17 June 2006 | by dyslexiasoftwareSee 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.
