Napoleon Dynamite – Edited
Teenage misfit Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) lives in a remote Idaho town with his older brother (whose only happiness is an Internet relationship), ATV-loving grandma, and sleaze-ball uncle. Napoleon’s life gains direction after he decides to find a date to the big dance and help his new classmate become class president.
This is a movie for my generation. It is blatantly stupid. But it really doesn’t matter how retarded this movie is because I still enjoyed it. Napoleon is one of the dumbest people I have ever seen, and the rest of the characters in this movie are just as stupid. I can’t really explain why this movie is good. It is just one of those movies that makes you laugh because it is so ridiculous. Basically, Napoleon spends his days at school, and then his Grandma (whom he and his much older dorky brother stay with) gets hurt so their creepy uncle has to come and take care of them. Uncle Rico messes everything up for Napoleon and tries to get rich quick while trying to get “with” all of the moms in town. There are no objectionable elements in this movie, though. I would recommend it to teenagers, but that’s about the only age group who would find this movie funny and/or entertaining.
