Nacho Libre

What to Know

Critics Consensus

At times hilarious, but other times offensive, Director Jared Hess is unable to recapture the collective charisma of his Napoleon characters, instead relying on a one-joke concept that runs out of steam. Sure to entertain the adolescents, however.

Peter Travers Rolling Stone Rated: 2/4 Nov 24, 2006 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 3/5 Aug 11, 2006 Full Review Nick Schager Lessons of Darkness More amusing in theory than in practice. Rated: C+ Jun 27, 2006 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Hess doesn't take it all far enough (the PG rating seems unusually restrictive), especially with the audacity of gags and the frequency of jokes. Rated: 7/10 Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Leigh Paatsch Herald Sun (Australia) Never quite as funny as it threatens to be, but Black's misplaced enthusiasm in the fight-night sequences remains a grotesquely pleasing joy to behold throughout. Rated: 3/5 Jun 19, 2020 Full Review Alberto Abuín Espinof It's not something wonderful that will enter the annals of history. [Full Review in Spanish] Feb 14, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

Stephen P It's not good , it's Da Best Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/11/24 Full Review J W It's the best. I love it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/01/24 Full Review Jordan P One of the greatest, most charming films of all time. Those eggs were a lie, Steven. A LIE! They give me no eagle powers! They give me no nutrients! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/30/24 Full Review Matthew M this is just one of those movies that you cant help but feel good emotionally/mentally after watching Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/13/24 Full Review Moses H i dont know if its cuz im a sucker for this kind of junk But this movie is a centre piece in me. AWESOME yep call me an idiot. But only because this movie is so awkward, outlandish and has so many plot holes, is what makes it amazing. The sheer amount of times ive seen this with my family.... Cant count it lol. but without a doubt, we always ALWAYS will forever laugh when Ignacio jumps off the cliff edge, after eating the eagle egg, farting on the way down SO GOOD! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/18/24 Full Review M Z I am I am I am I am I think I am I thank I am I'm glad I am I'm proud I am A real religious man *Flute playing* 🎶 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
