"All your life you are told the things you cannot do. All your life they will say you're not good enough or strong enough or talented enough; they will say you're the wrong height or the wrong weight or the wrong type to play this or be this or achieve this. THEY WILL TELL YOU NO, a thousand times no, until all the no's become meaningless. All your life they will tell you no, quite firmly and very quickly.

My review of Nacho Libre.

I finally saw last night what I had been anticipating for over a month now: Nacho Libre. It was everything I thought it would be, and I’m not just saying that because I’m a big Jack Black fan. It had a sort of mentally-challenged-Napoleon-Dynamite-Rocky’esque thing going on – and I’m also a huge closet fan of Rocky (1, 2, and 3 – not 4 or 5, because, well, I have taste, people).

I attended the movie with my SO and his 12-year old offspring, and we almost peed ourselves several times - especially at the genius fart humor strewn throughout, which proves that I apparently have the mentality of a 12-year old boy (fart humor, much like chimps, is comic gold).

Cinematic genius. A must see.
