Hmmm. Yeah.

Confession: I have a soft spot for Jack Black. The last scene in High Fidelity when John Cusack is being all cute and pitiful, and Barry (aka Przeboje i podboje) comes out with that soul: "And if you feel...like I feel...sugah...."

Now that's good stuff.

Today I saw this poster for an upcoming film. It looks truly awful, but you can't not smile.


Plot Outline: In order to save an orphanage from closure, a priest (Black) dons a masks and moonlights as a luchador.

What the heck is a luchador?

A luchador is a masked wrestler. Lucha libre as the sport is called started in Mexico a good while ago. I know about it because there was a cartoon on WB for a couple years called Mucha Lucha, that Ian used to watch a lot. Anyways you can read more about it in Wikepedia if you want: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Luchador
