Product Description

Product Description

Napoleon Dynamite is a new kind of hero, complete with a tight red 'fro, sweet moon boots, and skills that can’t be topped. Napoleon spends his days drawing mythical beasts, duking it out with his brother, Kip, and avoiding his scheming Uncle Rico. When two new friends enter Napoleon's life - shy Deb and mustachioed Pedro - the trio launches a campaign to elect Pedro for class president and make the student body’s wildest dreams come true. But if Pedro is to beat stuck-up Summer, Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon...

Amazon.ca

As deadpan comedies go, Napoleon Dynamite stands in a class all its own. Played by John Heder, the title character is (in the words of critic Roger Ebert) "the kind of nerd other nerds avoid," a mouth-breathing dweeb with a mangy nest of orange hair, and ungainly features that suggest a perpetual state of half-conscious depression. He lives in Preston, Idaho (former home of 24-year-old director Jared Hess) with his thrill-seeking grandma and 32-year-old brother, and his days at high school consist mostly of being abused or ignored by indifferent classmates. Napoleon's sad-sack story doesn't offer the scathing, impassioned humor of Welcome to the Dollhouse because Hess (who cowrote the nearly plotless screenplay with his wife, Jerusha) doesn't have an angst-ridden axe to grind. Instead, the comedy (which exists in a tacky universe of worn-out rural suburbia) is so low-key that some will find it difficult to laugh, while others (i.e., those who feel superior to Napoleon) will have plenty of fun at Napoleon's expense. The result is a curiously uneven film, hilarious at times, but hampered by its own sense of affectionate mockery. An audience favorite at the Sundance film festival, Napoleon Dynamite may not be entirely lovable, but it's definitely unique. --Jeff Shannon

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.

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.
(Listen to Children Of Bodom.)

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!

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.

By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 19 2011
Format: DVD
This is a movie I can say is certainly among,if not THE,most quirkiest movie I have ever seen/reviewed.Released in January/04,it stars Jon Heder as the nerd supreme.His world is populated by stereotypical characters of the extreme;the downtrodden and we-don't-fit-in types to the "popular" people and bullies.The plot,which if turned sideways would disappear,is as quirky as the characters that populate it.
The story takes place in rural Preston,Idaho in the early 90s,but the Dynamite family,house and decor suggest a definite 70s kiche.Napolean and brother Kip(Aaron Ruell)live with their grandmother(Sandy Martin),ho is most definitely butch in nature.One day their granny tells the boys she is going out on a date but ends up in the hospital for a spell after injuring herself while riding an ATV over a particularly large desert dune.Coming to the baby sitting rescue is their uncle Rico(John Gries)who has the old should've,could've-longing from his high school days.As Napoleon plods along at school Kip,who sits in front of a computer screen all day,is persuaded to forgo his internet chatting/surfing long enough to help his uncle make a little bread.
Meanwhile at school Napolean has befriended a Mexican student by the name of Pedro(Efren Ramirez).The first big challenge to them comes picking and getting someone to take to the prom.The next one is Pedro`s desire to become student president.Pedro ends up taking a girl that Napolean kind of had his eye on to the dance and in the end Pedro actually wins the presidency.
As the movie comes to a close Grandma has returned,Kip has met someone from his chat room who is his ``soul mate`` and that girl Napolean likes,Deb(Tina Majorino),meets up with Nappy to play tether ball.

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.
