Behold The Awesome Might of NACHO LIBRE: one sheet and The Trailer! Kneel Lowly Dogs!

Published at: Feb. 3, 2006, 4:05 p.m. CST

Hey folks, Harry here... Many of you are addicted to pootykat fracking lame American Wrestling... but the FACTS are, that's exactly what it is... pootykat fracking lame American Wrestling! Real men wear Mexican Masks and Wrestle for God! That's right... Real Wrestling Heroes Pile Drive for the Lord! And there's no more real a Mexican Wrestler than JACK BLACK as NACHO LIBRE! You know it, I know it... and God sure as blazes knows it! First... Behold the Masked Mexican Marvel!







Ok... go clean up, I know you messed yourselves. There's no shame in having the guano scared out your body like burning groundhogs after a napalm raid. That's just the natural reaction to seeing the man-god NACHO LIBRE!

Now that you're empty and all cleaned up, we have another treat for you. That's right... THE INTERNET EXCLUSIVE TRAILER! Because we really are in league with God... and moreso... with Mexican Wrestlers. In fact - Come Memorial Day Weekend... As part of AICN's 10th Anniversary Dealio... We'll be presenting with the Alamo Drafthouse an enormous event with regulation league Wrestling ring and real Mexican Masked wrestlers and some of the folks from this film... though... dare we hope, could we be worthy of... nay, I dare not utter it, but I do dare. I challenge the Gods to bring to Austin, NACHO LIBRE himself. Because on this Memorial Day in Austin... we'll shake the ring pillars of God's wrestling ring and unleash the awesome might of NACHO LIBRE upon my fair city of Austin. Oh yes, we will kick unholy donkey!!!

  • Feb. 3, 2006, 5:46 p.m. CST

    Fun trailer!

    by Koola_Norway

    Ok, so this might be fun. I'm still kind of sceptical to the whole concept of this film, and the caricature of the nun didn't do much other then remind me of baaaad Leslie Nielsen-movies. Jack Black has a ugly mexican dialect, but I guess this sort of comedy is not supposed to be taken too seriously. So I'm looking forward to it. The teaserposter is great. Reminds me a bit of the now CLASSIC poster for The 40-Year Old Virgin. Thanks for the trailer exclusive, Harry.

  • Feb. 3, 2006, 5:56 p.m. CST

    Looks funny.

    by one9deuce

    I LOVE Napoleon Dynamite and not only do I think it is a funny movie, I think it is a brilliant movie. Nacho Libre looks funny from the trailer, but you never know. HypeEndsHere, do you have ADD or something, how can you only get halfway through a trailer?! Did you want to spend the rest of that minute+ reading talkbacks or something? Koola_Norway, you are right on about the poster for The 40-Year Old Virgin. It IS a classic and made me laugh the second I laid eyes on it. The Nacho Libre poster is pretty funny also.

    i have to say, though, that i was ready to laugh and got no laughs. that's probably just me though.

  • You people who "know" how good a movie is after seeing a trailer amuse me. Why don't you just watch trailers for every movie out there, go ahead and bypass seeing an entire movie altogether.

  • Feb. 3, 2006, 6:03 p.m. CST

    Brilliant

    by Paul Franklin-Bihary

    This looks like a sure-fire bet for one of the best comedies of the year. Shit...we get Nacho AND JB and KG on film in the same year...either God or Satan have truly blessed or cursed us! Jack Black is my master. When his cheeks flexed, I felt my manhood quiver, and that made me afraid. And fuck all you who retroactively call out Nappy-D as being lame now that 90% of America loved it. It was one of the most innovative and subtle comedies in a long time, even if you didn't think it was funny. I feel bad for your families if you have so weak a sense of humor to think that food jokes are stupid. At least they aren't fart jokes, like every other frickin' comedy that comes out nowadays. Nacho will be the next pop-culture hit, and we will all soon be quoting him, as we have with Nappy-D. Viva el Nacho!

    by Negative Man

    Now, I'll Netflix it. Golly, that looked horrible. How do you make Jack Black seem like a piece of living cardboard?!!! Ok...I'll take a breath...perhaps they just hired a terrible editor for the trailer. Or Jared Hess may just prove himself a one trick pony. His direction looks boring. And how do you make Mexican Wrestling boring? And that toast scene was as humorous as those Carl's Jr. (Hardy's to the rest of ya...) commercials where you have to hear people eat. The only funny moment was with the bee hive. Other than that, it looks embarrassing for everyone involved, including the audience. I pray that it's just a bad trailer; I really want to like this.

    by Shermdawg

    I will say this though, a certain site, one that reports on "pussy fucking lame American Wrestling", a certain site that used to be moderated by a certain individual with "style", has reported on some things that you guys either were late at, or didn't even bother telling us, such as the merger of the WB and UPN, and Spike TV being the new home for the Star Wars saga. In regards to "pussy fucking lame American Wrestling", I rather watch that, than most of the shit that is in theaters or on tv. But I will give you this, most American wrestlers are pussies. Everyone knows the BEST wrestlers come from Canada.

    JACK BLACK'S BEST COMEDY...

    by StigMata

    ...was as Georgie in Jesus' Son.http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0186253 I pissed my pants at the "'Fuck-Head' is gonna ride you to your GRAVE!" and "We'll camp in the wilderness, and in the morning we'll breakfast on its haunches!" lines, however the bit in the emergency room was fall-out-of-your-chair funny. The only other time I laughed that hard was when Martin Short had a guest spot on Arrested Development (Season 2, disc 2) as a 90-year old ex-bodybuilder. THAT was funniest physical humor bit of all time. Nacho looks good and reminds me that I need to see Luche (this is a doc, right?) and Napoleon falls waay short of the mark but I've learned to accept it for what it is (which is not much more than a few chuckles done in a way to give everyone involved a real fucking chance to work). I'd like to buy everyone here a beer. Keep on.

    I know you conspiracy folks love your knitting circles, but the font size of the article headline was completely me being a fucking goof off on NACHO LIBRE. The idea of Jack Black being a goddamn Mexican Priest turned Masked Mexican Wrestler for the People and God... Well, Shit. That's all I fucking need. As a boy I spent a great deal of time in Mexico - had all the little three/four inch vacu-form plastic masked mexican Wrestler toys I bought in the market places and actually attended two matches in Mexico City - and saw 2 El Santo movies in Mexican Movie theaters... tiniest theater ever... in San Miguel de Allende. Masked wrestlers are a funnybone spot for me. I love them. I especially love all of the comic books with the lurid painted covers from the seventies. Thank god I can read spanish.

Doesn't it occur to you that if that were the case, there are a lot more directors out there who are better candidates for fanboy contempt than the director of 'Napoleon Dynamite?'

    the bad accent seems to be part of the goof/joke of the movie. Looks hilarious. Could be the 'Wedding Crashers' or '40 Year Old Virgin' of this summer.

    I suppose this is Jack Blacks take on the already tired Napolean Dynamite retro-irony style humor (you know that thing that started back in the 80s with guys like David Lynch, Daniel Clowes, and the Beastie Boys? Yeah, retro-irony really is that olde), but I bet it'll be funny. I thought Napolean Dynamite was funny, even if the whole aforementioned retro-irony thing has been played to death. [Oh, and note to affluent suburban people: please remove the trucker caps and drinking PBR ironicly. It's not clever or cute, it's lame, tired, and vaguely offensive. Thanks.]

    And if you don't know who the best is, you need to brush up on your history. And btw, even considering Fit Finlay as one of the best is just plain laughable. Haha, I laugh at you.

    Great call on Angle. One of my favorites since 2000 when I was live when he won the WWE title the 1st time. But he is at his absolute greatest when he is the heel. I appreciate other people cheering for him now, but its not quite the same as seeing him snap and beat the shit out of people cause he can. Now, in terms of wresting a match, Kurt Angle may be the best of all time. But he isn't "The Best". In terms of the entire package, I would probably say Ric Flair is the best ever. Much better in the ring than Hogan, though Hulk had/has the charsima to be awful in a match and still have everybody bow down to him. Stone Cold Steve Austin is another guy I'd put up there cause he used to be a great wrestler before the injuries. Sting up there too, but like Austin a little below Flair in my opinion. Right now I'd say "The Best" is HHH even though I've been trying to ignore that for a few years now. But in that ring, not many people can touch Angle's ability when the bell rings.

    by Hendricks

    but when's the last time AICN actually hosted a trailer on its own webspace? Coincidence with the ginormous font, no? Also, for being such a huge fan of this movie, didn't Harry proclaim this "Nacho Grande" with that first headline? Nice... nice.

    by Blue_Demon

    I can't wait for this one. I spent lots of time in Mexico as a kid and am a fan of Lucha movies ( notice my handle ) and did the same thing ol' Harry did as a kid ( no, not that ) and loaded up on plastic action figures ( zero articulation but gaudy colors ) and wrestling masks, bringing them back across the border. Ahhh...this movie can't get here fast enough. I take it Nacho Libre is a tecnico.

    by iamnicksaicnsn

    from this site and other people, etc. I was expecting it to be genius, but it ended up being pretty awkward and not in the good way. It just wasn't very funny. Maybe I was too overhyped, maybe I should have seen it in theaters before everyone and their mother saw it, but I just didn't see what the big deal was. In comparison, let me whip out my opinions of 2005's biggest mainstream comedies: Wedding Crashers and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Both were very good, had good plots and actors, etc, but each had their flaws that personally didn't lift it to what I consider eternal comedic greatness. Wedding Crashers had some bust-a-gut hernia-inducing laughs, but they were few and far-between. 40-Year had consistent laughs through out, but none of them were so insane that they made me laugh. So yeah, that's where I come from. Also, I'm from a city, and have never really lived in a suburb or podunk town in the middle of nowhere, nor in a midwestern red-state, so maybe that's another reason I didn't "get it." I just don't really think Napoleon deserved the accolades it received. So there.

    I can't stand Jack Black... only reason why I went to see Kong was because a friend lied ad told me Black got eaten at the end.. (mother fucker).. J.B. is about as entertaining as masterbating with a cheese grater. The only reason why he has a career is because people's expectations in the entertainment industry have bottomed out into complete and utter shit.

    by bigbadbua

    I appreciate the comments about my post, but who would you consider "The Best"? I believe that it takes not only a certain amount of charisma, but the ability to have a top-notch match in the ring. That's why I go with the guys that I did, because they were great at both, while Hogan pretty much sucked in the ring, and Rock didn't have great matches until the end of his run. Also, I forgot to mention Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart. Two of the all-time greats and they weren't in my list.

    by tango fett

    Jack Black is pretty funny, and once again this'll make bank. Thing is, Kyle Gass (part deux of that which is D) is actually funnier which is kind of weird since you don't hear as much from him. More excited about Pick of Destiny.

    On most accounts, yes. About the toast thing? I thought that was lame, and I hope that crazy Mormon doesn't inject a bunch of deadpan Napoleon humor into it. I got burned out on that pretty quickly as did everyone else (thanks a lot HOT TOPIC).

    This will be cool/ funny I'm sure cause Jack kicks ass, but, will he be battling the Wolf Man or Dr. Frankenstein?

    by LucienPierce

    ...but it ain't. I watched the trailer a couple times, thinking perhaps I didn't get it. The concept is hilarious, the creatives involved are hilarious (although Jack Black is hit and miss for me). The poster ended up being much funnier than the trailer. It doesn't help that the movie looks like it was made on the cheap. Which it probably was, going for that whole Indie film look. They'll surely release another trailer that's been edited better. Until then my excitement for this film has dwindled.

    Someone up there said that it reminded them of El Topo, which sounds like they have read about it and have never seen it, but wanted to sound like they know about underground movies. And as for this movie... Irony and akward pauses does not equal comedy. This movie looked to be the comedic equivelant of an Urban Outfitters catchphrase tee shirt.

    No. No. No. No. No. No.

    by Freakemovie

    First of all, the truth: I hated hated hated Napoleon Dynamite. It would've been funny if it was about as long as an SNL sketch, but it was exactly like an SNL movie: something that's funny for a few minutes stops being funny after a few minutes. The movie was the biggest drawn-out drag I've seen. So anyway, on to Nacho Libre. I thought it looked dumb, but hey, give it a shot, right? I watch the trailer. First scene: kinda funny. Good line. I laughed. Unfortunately, I didn't even crack a smile for the rest of it. It's kind of a shame, because I do give props to Paramount for financing such a strange concept (then again, pairing the director of Napoleon Dynamite with Jack Black on a script by an already-established screenwriter sounds like an easy sell, now that I think about it), but it just plain looks awful. I love a good stupid comedy. But this is stupid in all the wrong ways.
