Two Thumbs Up
I'm going to give Nacho Libre two thumbs up for three reasons:
1) It was good.
2) It was, in a really fun and cute way, very pro faith.
3) I like the return of the family friendly PG movie that isn't a disney cartoon or a goofy 'homeward bound' type film. Nacho Libre isn't the first, but I think it's the best of the bunch so far. I'm not sure when it started (maybe cheaper by the dozen????), but in recent years it seems like Hollywood has finally realized that they can make really good movies that everybody likes. My whole family went to see Nacho Libre together and we weren't the only ones. The theater was full of middle-aged families...40 something parents seeing the movie with their teenage children. I think when producers decide to invest in a clean, fun movie that truly is for the entire family, parents should step up and support the effort.
