Subject: Why Bother? The AV Club's 2006 Summer Movies

good laughs details every movie coming out until July. Some I prolly wouldn't have known about until I saw the commercial for it.

Nacho Libre

What it's about: Writer-director Jared Hess follows up his cult hit Napoleon Dynamite; Jack Black stars as a Mexican monk who takes up professional wrestling to save an orphanage.

Why it's probably a waste of time: The premise sounds like a cross between an overlong Saturday Night Live skit and Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo. Also, Jack Black's shtick is getting tired.

Why it might be worth seeing anyway: Something about the way he fills out those skin-tight luchador pants is hard to resist.

Suggested alternate activity: A video camera is all you need to convert your backyard-wrestling passion into Nacho Libre fan-fiction.
