User Review

This movie is racist…my a**

Rating:


Honestly people, get over it. Stop being so damn sensitive, suddenly
people think everything is racist. People are so busy tripping over
themselves trying to be politically correct all the time, it's
ridiculous. Nacho Libre is not being racist. It's telling the story of
a guy who lived in an orphanage and became a wrestler to save it. Take
it for what is it…a movie. Yes, Jack Black's accent is annoying…but
guess what…it's a comedy, it's supposed to be one of the things that
makes people laugh. It's not supposed to be realistic so stop thinking
that it has to be.

Go watch the movie. It's funny and Jack Black is priceless.
