Best Wrestling Movies: Nacho Libre

This wrestling movie is an interesting look inside the world of Mexican Lucha Libre wrestling, and is a comedy featuring Jack Black. It is one of the few comedies on the list, although it is also very stylized. From the masks worn by Mexican wrestlers to the way it is promoted, it has a position on this list simply because it looks at the sport from a different angle, and at a different country within the world of professional wrestling. Although a comedy, and seemingly a parody at first glance, the movie has a bit more depth than you might expect.

Nacho Libre is directed by Jared Hess, who is also famous for directing Napoleon Dynamite. For anyone looking for a comedy about wrestling, this is a great way to share a few laughs.
