This week's reviewed movie is:
Nacho Libre




Gene the Barber

Snick the Sidekick

Gordie the Barber



Considering the talent involved--the worst-case scenario for Nacho Libre is that it should at least offer a few more laughs.

This wrestling comedy stumbles to the mat in the first minutes and stays there.

Just how bad can it be? Sadly, very.

The blow is mortal as movies go. This one is brain dead.

Fitting a niche market (and a slow weekend), Nacho Libre hits the screens like a bull in a china shop, a goofy wrestling film set south of the border with Jack Black mugging for the camera because he has obviously lost both the script and his mind.

As stupid as it sounds, with as many laughs as the commercials have shown.

The problem I found with this big Hollywood comedy starring funny man Jack Black is that after seeing his Mexican wrestling adventure, I thought the jokes were disappointing.

I chuckled a few times, but the jokes just sit there & don't seem to lead anywhere.

One thing is for sure, it didn't work for me.
