    This is another one of those movies that gets worse every time you watch it. I'm to the point now where the only things I can tolerate are Uncle Rico and Kip.

    The only non-Rico/Kip scene I like is the "Pedro offers you his protection" bit. I still laugh at that one. Everything else is boring. I blame John Heder. Maybe it's seeing him and his lack of any range in anything else several times in the last decade. Maybe…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    I know. I cannot believe it either! Napoleon Dynamite was such a rich and enthralling experience. My previous experience of the film was hazy but what was for sure was that I felt it was dull and unappealing due to its deadpan characters and lack of real plot, but coming back to this with a more mature and aware mindset, I was able to find the gems behind the film's supposed…

    This was a "totally sweet" film! I think all the ingredients of this movie came together perfectly: The setting, the characters, the small town feel, the little bits and pieces here and there...
    I heard about this movie a few times, but never really watched it - then I recorded it when it was on TV, and BOOM!! I was totally into it thereafter! Its one of those movies that you can just sit and watch and you end up feeling happier about yourself thereafter! Also, that "sick" dance of Napoleon at the end just WINS!!!

    I saw this a long time ago and didn't appreciate it. (Was in like 4th or 5th grade.)

    But now I think it's awesome. I understand all the quotes now.

    Consistently funny, heart of gold, formal powerhouse.

    Much improved on its second viewing. It goes to show what effect a film can have when you watch it outside of it's pop culture 'vote for pedro' hype and appreciate on its original, artistic merits.

    I was finally badgered into watching this film (I know, I'm way behind the curve), and all I got out of it was FREAKING IDIOTS!!!

    Which, as I understand, is all you're supposed to get out of it.

    I refuse to watch this film ever again. Why? For a number of reasons.

    1. I know for a scientific fact that I lose brain cells and get dumber every time I watch this movie (I'm not sure that "dumber" is even a word in the dictionary).

    2. I watched this 3 times in my life, once because I was curious; twice because a family member talked me into it; and a 3rd time because, for some stupid goddamn fucking…

    Si esperan que pasen los créditos finales (todos!, hasta el último), descubrirán que hay 5 minutos más de película. Y con uno de los momentos más graciosos.

    Both in real life and in film, students within a high school all seem to be separated into cliques that are almost cliches in themselves. Cheerleaders tend to be the elite among their peers, and are often viewed as not too terribly intelligent. Football players and jocks are essentially seen as the male counterpart to the aforementioned cheerleaders. "Geeks" are often associated with books, homework, and social awkwardness. And then there's Napoleon Dynamite: while similar to the "geeks", Napoleon Dynamite…
