HE’S NACHO AVERAGE HERO.
Ignacio (Jack Black), who grew up in a Mexican monastery and now works there as a cook, decides to become a fearless wrestler, but that is frowned upon. The Napoleon Dynamite director turned to Jack Black for this crazy concept and they’ve tried to make the film look as charmingly low-budget as Jared Hess’s first film, but there’s not much beneath the surface. Still, the Mexican environs compensate a bit and Black (as always) scores points by having his ridiculous character behave like he’s on a mission to change the world.
2006-U.S. 91 min. Color. Directed by Jared Hess. Cast: Jack Black (Ignacio), Ana de la Reguera (Sister Encarnacíon), Héctor Jiménez (Esqueleto), Troy Gentile, Moises Arias, Lauro Chartrand… Peter Stormare.
