E Film Critic
This style may have been intended as a parody of a familiar dramatic style.
Yet, for all its ripe ingredients, Nacho Libre is never truly a funny film.
Is it funny Now and then. Stupid Very. Racist Possibly. Ugly Profoundly. Wild Undeniably. Singular Completely.
Hess is a cinematic trickster, and this quirky movie will win you over with its visual flair and its delicious fairy tale magic.

Ill risk being branded a humorless prig by calling attention to the implicit racism of Nacho Libre.
Like the rest of the film, it is tightly paced, fast as a whip and addictively entertaining.

It was one of those rare movies that is more entertaining to remember than to see.
