YMMV / Nacho Libre

  • Acceptable Religious Targets: Esqueleto could be considered a combination between a Hollywood Atheist and a Strawman pseudo-scientist.
    • The Catholic monks may be a minor example. They are all depicted as strict, pompous and ill-tempered, with only Sister Encarnación being depicted as loving and open.
  • Acceptable Targets: Many of the wrestlers play this up as part of their personas.
  • Awesome Music: The soundtrack's epic remix of Mr. Loco's obscure 70s hit "Hombre Religioso (Religious Man)," which adds a gorgeous orchestral accompaniment to the original recording.
  • Critical Dissonance: The film received mostly mixed reviews from critics but was more warmly received by audiences, especially from fans of Professional Wrestling and lucha libre.
  • Ear Worm: The opening song, which also replays during Nacho's match with Ramses. Just listen.
  • Fake Nationality: Handwaved involving Jack Black as Nacho. "My mother was a Scandinavian Lutheran minister, my father a Mexican deacon. They both tried to convert each other."
    • "When you are a man... sometimes you wear stretchy pants... in your room. ... Is for fun."
  • Mexicans Love Nacho Libre: The vast majority of the YouTube videos for the film originate from Mexico. This is probably to be expected, considering the source material.
