Nacho Libre: King of the Ring, King of My Heart

After watching Jack Black in Nacho Libre, I am temporarily assigning the movie as my temporary all-time favorite flick (sorry George Lucas).

This movie had me in stitches. It's a story I hold close to my heart because of my Mexican heritage and the Napoleon Dynamite-style authenticity the film-makers applied to this movie. The Spanglish, the jokes, the locations, all of it, was perfect. In my book, Nacho edges Napoleon in the end. Trust me, this movie is funny in so many ways, on so many levels, some which most audiences will never understand.

I grew up vacationing in Mexico and loving wrestling, so this movie connected with me like a Star Wars reference on FOX's "Family Guy."

Can't wait for the DVD, because it's gonna be Nacho Time!

P.S. 'Dynamite fans keep an eye out for a resemblance between Nacho's recreation clothes and the liesurely duds of Uncle Rico.
