Nacho (Jack Black) is a young man who was raised in a monastery in Mexico and now works there as the cook. Fueled by his passion for wrestling, he dons a mask and cape and picks up a partner to compete in a local Lucha Libre tournament to try for the $200 prize so he can buy better food for the kids and achieve respect. When a new nun, Sister Encarnacion (Ana de la Reguera), arrives at the monastery, he tries to win her adoration as well while attempting to prove that being a Luchador isn’t a sin and win the grand prize at a battle royal tournament so he can buy a bus for the kids.

sleeping tendency: 4 out of 5
jack black is a great supporting actor. but on his own with movies like this one, he sucks…just like my english grammar. it got too freaking boring that i fell asleep halfway through it. there were some scenes that are funny but it drags…hence the sleeping time.
= During some of the wrestling scenes they used blow up dolls to replace some of the audience. Supposedly, they cost much less than extras and they looked real.
= “Chancho” is a (Mexican) Spanish word for “Pig”.
= Esqueleto is a Spanish word for “skeleton”.
= While filming a wrestling scene, Jack Black jumped from the ring and struck his head on a chair. This caused a gash above his right eye which needed stitches.
= Was sent to theaters under the codename “toast”.
