Napoleon Dynamite

I finally caught this movie today (after wanting to see it since it was released to select theaters, I could never get any of my buddies to make an hour or 2 trip to just see a movie). I imagined it would be funny, but I really had my expectations exceeded. It was QUITE humorous and quite entertaining. I really recommend you all go checkify it out and let me know what you think!!!

If you know nothing about the movie, check this stuff out then:

Napoleon Dynamite is a quirky teenager growing up in the remotes of Idaho with a love for dancing and the way of the ninja who's really just trying to understand his life while living with his Uncle Rico, whose shady business deals are just some of the things that make Napoleon's social life in small-town Idaho all the more difficult.

Post warning:
I admit that every and anything I said here is most likely biased because I know the actor who played Napoleon on a personal basis...

Weird. I know a guy who knows that guy.

Anyway, the guy I know also says it's very funny, but I suppose he's biased too.

When I first saw a picture of that guy the look reminded me of a young Adam Clayton.

"be a winner

not u2's most poetic lines, but, hey, it's good advice.

I saw it last night. I don't think I even chuckled once and we left before it was over. I guess it's the kind of humor you have to be in the mood for. I will go so far as to say it was one of the most unfunny movies I have ever seen!

I have awful taste



I dont blame you for feeling that way, I thought I'd think the same thing before I saw it. I figured it would be the kind of movie you either loved or hated. How was the rest of the theater responding? People were virtually rolling in the aisles in the showing I went to. Then again, it's kind of a 'local' movie though (director & main star both went to school here), so I imagine the audiences would differ a little that way.

My opinion wasn't too far off from yours, joyful!

I did chuckle a few times though...but I am glad I saw it during a matinee, AND I was glad a friend decided not to go with me (she would have HATED it - and I would have been bitched out).

If it is any consolation, I did think of Mofo during the film, knowing what part of the country it was filmed in.

One of the reasons i liked it more than i should've.

My humor is on the low side, and i love movies like this, so im gonna have to say i loved it.



P.S. Im a sad lonely person

The guy on the poster posted (haha) reminded me of the pic of mofo fighting the velocoraptor. Or whatever it was.

I like non blockbuster movies. Which is good seeing as I live in one of the largest backwaters on the planet.

Now picture he and I in a snow covered Tokyo, quoting lines from our favorite Saturday Night Live sketches and movies. Good times, good times.
