Nacho Libre vs RV

I've been in a reviewing mood of late. Books .. and now for the silver screen (OK rather one of those screens that pops out of the airplane roof and that keeps getting interrupted by the "chicken or beef" of the air hostess).

Here goes.

Yunus Kemp spells out my sentiments exactly on the movie : Nacho Libre . He does this so well it requires no further comment in fact.
Jack Black's spandex doesn't stretch

"Nacho Libre is not as much a comedy as it is an exercise in silliness and inanity. There are bits that are funny, but overall, it is a half-filled, bland enchilada that no amount of guacamole or salsa could spice up."...

On another note I really enjoyed the sometimes over the top, farcical and critically slammed excursion of Robin Williams in

I identified well with Williams' character as he tries ever so hard to simultaneously please his boss and his family, while at the same time trying to get some meaning out his job.

And insight into the 21st century family:

It's silly but I loved it.
