Infantile and dull comedy about a Mexican friar (Jack Black), working as a cook in a boys' orphanage, who secretly takes up "lucha libre" wrestling against the rules of his order, while hoping to earn the admiration of a pretty young nun (Ana de la Reguera). Director and co-writer Jared Hess's unfunny follow-up to "Napoleon Dynamite" is utterly lacking in charm, wit or taste and, apart from the pervasive crude humor, the inappropriate puppy-love relationship of its protagonists, both in religious orders -- whether or not they've taken "final vows" -- precludes recommendation. Pervasive irreverence, slapstick violence in and out of the ring, including an impaling, innuendo, crude humor including flatulence, vulgar costuming, partial nudity and heedless thievery. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children.
