Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Black's caped "luchador" grows on you. Like a fun guy.

New York Post

Hess' deadpan dorks are strange, really strange. As in the Christopher Guest movies, there is a distinct comedy architecture you recognize from the opening minutes.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
What is missing in plot and character development is made up for in silly fun.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Michael Rechtshaffen
An amiably clunky, unapologetically silly summer confection that nevertheless lands sufficient lethal slams to the funny bone.

New York Daily News

By Jack Mathews
The sweetness of Nacho's nature, along with Black's unselfconscious physical enthusiasm, turn all this into a live-action cartoon, with the ring violence having no greater consequence than a Wile E. Coyote fall from a high place.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Very broad and very silly, it's a doodle of a comedy -- a one-joke idea (fat guy goes luchador) padded out to feature length by Black's willingness to do anything for a laugh.

This Nacho leaves your palate longing for more spice and less rancid cheese.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Once Nacho gets the wrestling bug, though, it's all about Jack Black the irrepressible clown, and the comedy dies a slow death for lack of fresh ideas.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
The comedy is hit and miss, with good bits interrupted by dead patches. It's a movie to root for more than to enjoy.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
You can see what the film was going for, but the jokes just sit there; you chuckle a few times, mostly out of lame hope, but you never bust a gut, never really get what you came for.
