Good Dumb Fun

by Jared Hess

If you didn’t like Napoleon Dynamite you very probably won’t like Nacho Libre. There is a goofy earnestness to the whole film in an almost anachronistic way. While there is more of a structure than Napoleon Dynamite it doesn’t have the same feeling. It’s a bit darker, but there are some infantile, but funny jokes and everything is taken pretty much as far as it can go. The slapstick is way over the top, but some of the scenes between the characters are sweet. Overall it’s not very deep or profound, but good if you like that sort of thing.
