Napoleon Dynamite (2004)


Movie Review

Directed by: Jared Hess

Starring: Jon Heder, Efren Ramirez, and Jon Gries

Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) is a very unique high school student from Idaho.  He lives with his grandmother (Sandy Martin) and his brother Kip (Aaron Ruell).  When his grandmother gets injured in a quad bike accident, she brings in Uncle Rico (Jon Gries) to watch over the two brothers while she recuperates.  Rico wreaks havoc in Napoleon’s already sad social life when he tries selling breast-enhancement drugs to his classmates, including his friend Deb (Tina Marjorino).  Napoleon Dynamite is one hell of a weird flick, but it’s pretty damn funny.  It’s a one-of-a-kind comedy that never got the love it deserved.  Check it out when you have the chance though.  A little buzz should help you get through those weird moments.
