Load Bearing Beams

May 11, 2018

Friend Of The Show Caleb Hogan joins the show live in studio to discuss his Listener Choice (because he's a Listener as well!) movie: 2006's Nacho Libre.

Jack Black plays Ignacio, a friar in rural southwestern Mexico who longs to be a luchador. But that makes this movie sound much more conventional than what it is, because, really, it's just Napoleon Dynamite, but in Mexico instead of Idaho, and with a monastery instead of a high school, and with lucha wrestling instead of silly dancing. 

Is Nacho merely a cucumber to deliver meme-worthy quotes like GET THAT CORN OUT OF MY FACE! that people who don't get just don't get? Or is something else going on here?

Do you want us to talk about YOUR movie? Leave a review of our podcast on iTunes, and in your review give us the name of your load-bearing beam and why it's so important to you.
