This is one of those movies that I watched on DVD, thought was okay, but just didn't feel any motivation to bother writing a review. Then some time later, I vaguely regretted that. And now I don't remember it clearly and don't care about it. But I still felt like I should mention it. So I wrote up this little page for my "meh" section. But some years later, when I created a "sports movies" section, I decided to move it there. Though it's mostly a comedy. Ostensibly.

I think the only actor in the movie with whom I am at all familiar is Jack Black, who plays an orphan named Ignacio. He grew up in an orphanage run by a monastery, or whatever, and now he works there. But he decides to become a luchador, in order to raise money for the orphanage. And he takes on the name Nacho. And that's pretty much all I remember. I'm afraid I didn't find the movie all that funny or interesting.
