5.0 out of 5 stars Napoleon is my hero Nov. 15 2004
Format:DVD
The character of Napoleon Dynamite is one of the most brilliant examples of cinema. Who doesn't see a little bit of his or herself in him? Hell, I owned a pair of those snow boots, drew screwed-up monsters during class, and for the majority of my formative teenage years was forced to endure boring, unimaginative people assuming they had more power and brains than I did.
And Debbie is the greatest: she is everywoman.
And LaFawnda simply made the movie - a small role but so influential.
I am so pleased that this movie, made on a miniscule budget, became such a hit.

5.0 out of 5 stars So what are you gonna do today Napoleon? March 22 2005
Format:DVD
I loved this movie! When I first heard about it, I didn't have high hopes, but a couple of co-workers kept talking about it so much, I had to give it a try. The writing is hilarious, the characters of Kip and Pedro are two of the funniest creations I've seen all year. With all the remakes and endless sequels out there these days, it's nice to see fresh, original movies once in a while. If Uncle Rico and his football video doesn't make you laugh out loud, then the 'Happy Hands Club' will! Go out and see this great, unique film! It takes a bit to grow on you, but once it does, you'll want to see it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant in its simplicity Dec 23 2004
Format:DVD
Let me start by saying this is a very pointless and stupid movie. And I can say, that it is so stupid and simple that its funny. The first time I saw it was a couple months ago in the theatres with a couple guys. We were at the mall and didnt know what to do, so we went to this movie called Napolean Dynamite because another guy recomended it. And let me tell you, I couldn't thank this guy enough. This is easily one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. I've seen it like 7x on dvd because we rented it. Its just a story about a couple nomral people living their boring lives. My favorite scene from the movie isn't funny, but very deep. The shot when the three of the main characters (Napolean, Perdo, and Deb) standing at the side of the dance, (shot from behind them) watching everyone else have fun and watching the world go by. But I have to say the best thing about this movie was that it was made by just normal guys. Listen to the commentary, its just three normal guys sitting around laughing about the movie and their experience making it. Its not some director saying "Now the symbol in this scene is that the fire is above the ice, meaning that Joe's battle with himself..."
But anyway, I'm rambling again. So I'll end by telling you that this was a very funny movie. And it's highly recomended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Hilarious Antics EVER Dec 20 2004
Format:DVD
I was introduced to Napoleon Dynamite by my friend who saw it last summer, and when it came to our movie theaters I went 3 times and laughed till I cried everytime. It is an independant film, worth every cent, and pays attention to every little detail. The bottom line is you'll either LOVE it or you'll hate it. Any one between the ages of 14 and 30 will love it. I found myself quoting it for months afterward. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Attempting to remain objective June 7 2006
Format:DVD
People don't want to be told what they do or do not like and the fact of the matter is that you can't tell someone they'll love or hate Napoleon Dynamite. It is the type of movie which one viewer will immediately despise and another will be in a fit of giggles the whole way through - the humor style really leaves no room for a middle ground. That said, the best reviews are the informative ones and saying 'this was the best flipping movie EVER' accomplishes nothing.

So I'll break it down; there is no plot and the humor is the basic everyday sort that you would laugh at your best friend for but never expect to see in a directed movie. It's not crude, it's not witty - it's (and I have no other term for it) geek humor. It's laughing at the kid in the hall because his shirt is from the 1960's and not up to the current codes of fashion. The movie was directionless but I at least found it refreshing for that - a movie that was not about getting from point A to point B so much as sitting and staring at point A, wondering when it will do something. There is also no language used in the movie worse than 'flipping' or 'idiot', which I appreciated.

Napoleon Dynamite is not meant for everyone. Being a self-proclaimed geek I loved it; I could appreciate the drawn out sighs, the misplaced love of nunchucks, and the mumbled tales Lyle tells. But I also know people on the other side of the spectrum who need substance - they need some kind of plot or action to keep them going. The humor of the movie is that there is no plot, no direction, and no point - if you need any of the aforementioned I recommend skipping this movie and moving onto something with explosions.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Than Funny March 5 2005
By A Customer
Format:DVD
If you watch this movie expecting nothing but a light comedy, you may be disappointed. Yes it's funny -- hilarious at times. But it's more than that too. Napolean Dynamite is full of smalltime heros. People who don't fit the mould and still try to make it, to hold onto their dignity. Yes, this movie will make you laugh, but the realistic touching characters will also make you cry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Idiot March 8 2005
Format:DVD
Jared Hess' Napoleon Dynamite is, without question, the sleeper comedy of the year. Influenced by Wes Anderson's "Rushmore" and Paul Feig's "Freaks and Geeks", Napoleon Dynamite is a study in isolation that clearly distances itself from the two. Napoleon, played by newcomer Jon Herder, is a quirky geek from rural Idaho who, like many before him within the genre, has problems relating to others. His obvious disregard for the way in which others view him, including the audience, isolates him further. The fact is that Napoleon Dynamite is a character study that never actually studies a character.
It nestles itself within the genre of alienated teen comedy by taking 85 minutes to deliver and repeat a one liner. Situations present themselves whereby Napoleon is put on the spot. His obvious disregard for how others receive his words deliver the joke, as there are no consequences for his action. Things here stay stagnant, a journey that takes us nowhere except to the realization that we are laughing out loud, situation after situation.
What distinguishes this film from others within the genre is that there is no revenge from this nerd; there isn't even any change in his disposition. Rather, Jared Hess takes us through a week in the life of a geek leading up to the prom. The anxiety pertaining to this, as seen in so many other films, is totally underdeveloped, which works.
To suggest that Napoleon is comfortable with the way he handles himself is an understatement, but i guess that is fitting since this film is a total understatement. Despite being the center of attention, he does not allow a possible error in judgment to affect him. The audience laughs at him the same way his onscreen peers laugh at him. Napoleon remains unshaken, it truly doesn't stir him.
Napoleon Dynamite is a comedy that is quirky enough to keep you entertained from start to finish, even though you end up in exactly the same place.

How anyone can NOT like this movie is beyond me. This is some of the funniest stuff on film I've ever seen. If you're sense of humour is more 'Cosby Show', then don't bother. Read more
