About a year or two ago I sat on an airplane coming back from London and ended up watching ‘School of Rock,’ without any preconceptions, and was really charmed. So last night I went to see ‘Nacho Libre’ expecting something good and had the same experience.
There are very few comedians who are really funny without being nasty in some way, either about themselves or about others. Jack Black has that quality. I don’t watch TV much, but some of the Ellen DeGeneres I saw years ago was a bit like that too. Black is more wildly funny and yet sweeter.
