The directorial debut of filmmaker Jared Hess, who also co-wrote the screenplay, Napoleon Dynamite is a quirky, offbeat comedy set in the small Idaho town of Preston. Jon Heder stars in the titular role, a carrot-topped oddball with a decidedly eccentric family that includes his llama-loving, dune-buggy enthusiast grandmother. The story centers on the local high school's race for class president. Using some nontraditional means, Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro (Efrem Ramirez) run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer (Haylie Duff). Also starring The Drew Carey Show's Diedrich Bader, Napoleon Dynamite premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.

Never gets old, sill stand the test of time, no doubt
This movie really made me laugh. I love all the dysfunctional characters, how they interact, and how they are all social misfits. Brilliant!! Pedro is the man!
A thousand thank-yous to the team that brought this movie into the world. If you like funky off-beat comedies or if you like movies about nerds, this is the one for you!
Wow. I have never seen a more hilarious movie in my entire life. I thought it looked cool, so I went to go see it...oh man. I was hoarse from laughing after the movie. The dance scene is sad, but by far the funniest part is when Napoleon goes up to Deb and says, 'Are you drinking 1% milk cause you think you're FAT?!' Holy hell I was rollin. BOTTOM LINE: Buy this.
Alright, I'll admit that it did have some funny parts but mainly, this movie was painful. It left alot of empty holes to the story. Was Napoleon retarded or just slow? Did this movie take place in the 80's? If so, why did Kip have a computer? Why was Pedro running for President? The big climax in this movie was the dance scene. Stupid, stupid, stupid!
spectacular!! a must for all of us nerds. i don't care what your age is. mine is 56. my daughter cranked this sucker up on the dvd tv and i started guffawing with the first or second scene. it was just like i remember growing up in utah, even though the movie depicted preston idahoo. just as odd, just as lame.
i feel this movie was good and also just a tad bit pointless. i say it's a good movie because it is inspiring to all the people in the world like napoleon dynamite. it also is very funny and you will never get tired of watching it over and over again. it is pointless because there really isn't any plot at all. other than that, i feel this is a movie to see if you want to relax and just laugh! so, it's a great movie to see.
Dang, this was one Sweet movie.:) Jon Heder as Napolean is perfection. The entire film is genius. Everybody knows someone who is like Napolean. I think that is part of what makes this movie so great. Another part is the fact that they can go almost two hours without saying a (bad) curse word. I watched this movie with no idea how it was going to play out. I rented it for the bike-jump scene, that to me was enough to spend my four bucks to rent it. The whole movie looks like something out of the seventies, except for uncle rico, and you will see what I mean if you get the movie. Hopefully I will be buying this movie soon.
From start to finish one of the friggin' funniest shows ever made. The character that Jared Hess and friends created has got to be one of the funniest since Monty Python died out. We follow the dol-drum life of high school kid Napoleon as he entangles himself in situations most of us would have no trouble avoiding. But it is really the character and his funny little phrases that keep the audience peeing their pants from the start. I saw the original short film they made at Brigham Young University and was exstatic to see that yet another great idea was given a chance to succeed in our "only big dumb HOLLYWOOD movies can ever be successful" age, and it was well worth the risk. By far one of the best low budget films of all time!!! SO, MAKE ANOTHER ALREADY GUYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Like 'The Dude' from The Big Lebowski, Napoleon Dynamite is a truly original, funny, honest character. You don't really feel like you're watching a movie at all, and you don't want it to end. It has no real plot to think of, just interesting characters who will make you laugh. You'll be quoting it for weeks. Trust me. It's movies like this that give hope for original stories that break the formulaic status quo that seems to dominate the movie landscape. And if you watch it and don't like it, all I can say is... 'Idiot!' And if you do watch it and like it, well then, you're just.... 'Lucky!' Thanks for listening.
Number 1 anyone who doesn't like Napoleon Dynamite is a sap! This movie is the BOMB! I bought the soundtrack and i can't stop playing it! It's the best movie on earth! So yes if you didn't like it you're a dry, old, crusty-critter! (this is said from the bottom of my heart)
I am a 48 year old who watched this with my 10 year old daughter. I loved it and have watched it over and over. I even repeat the lines. It is really nice to see the geek not only win, but stay true to himself in winning. I hope that a sequel is in the works.
This movie was the most incredibly boring piece of crap I've ever seen. Someone said that it's not supposed to have a plot it's just supposed to be about real life. This is the real life of an idiot, which is not funny, as you might think. Movies need plots. Most people's lives are not interesting, so why make movies about them. These kids seemed like they should be in special ed (no offense to anyone who is actually disabled). This has no plot. I didn't want to see it. I only saw it to tell my friends, who loved it, that I despised it with every fiber of my being. I have nothing against independent or different films. I love Little Miss Sunshine, but this movie was an absolute disgrace. This just shows what society is coming to. People fawn all over this, but criticize REAL movies. DON'T WATCH THIS!!!
This movie will have a cult following, no doubt. I would not be shocked if you see t-shirts being made, quotes constantly cited, or actors asked to fill roles in more movies. This is nothing short of rolling on the floor laughing...
This movie is so stupid, its actually funny. Even my dad, a stiff, grumpy, mean, warden, couldn't stop laughing. Once you see how dump and silly these guys act, you'll make your self buy this movie. If you're the kind of person who laughs at people for their stupidity, you've rented/boguht the right movie. All those other people who said this is a dumb movie, well, they're right. It's the stupitidy that makes you laugh. This is one of the few movies that makes you laugh at the characters, not at a good joke. This is a must see and i highly recommend it.
Soo funny, me and my freinds were laghing about it for weeks after seeing it. So dont be such an idiot and buy this.
This movie may be dumb"oh wait, it is!" but it is a true classic. it is so funny! the humor may be dry, but it is told in a nerd's point of view."sorry,no offence!"anyway if you love good,clean,laughs, the I highly recommend this movie. Enjoy!! :"
this is one of the best movies......ever! it is so stupid, that it's funny! if you love to laugh, this is a movie for you!
I am a 52-year-old dad to a senior in high school who brought home a friend's copy of Napoleon Dynamite, and asked my wife and me to watch it. The first viewing made me almost physically ill. I had been a nerd in High School, and bullied a lot, like Napoleon. Since there is not a large amount of plot in this film, it was easy to insert my own memories of high school into the film. That reflexive identification kept me from clearly seeing what was actually portrayed in the movie. I didn't understand that at the time. All I knew was I felt very uneasy as I saw my own discomfort re-lived on the screen. I was angry that all those rotten experiences had been dredged up and I didn't want to see it again. Lucky for me, my daughter had this DVD on for days. Every time I'd walk by the TV, I catch a scene of Napoleon and Pedro, or maybe Kip, and laugh at the absurdly deadpan delivery. After seeing these bits and pieces often enough, and hearing my daughter quoting some of the funnier (seemingly) throw-away lines ("I caught you a delicious bass...")I started to get the joke. Please watch this a few times, and give some space between the screenings. I think most of you will start to see the great joy of life that the director and the entire cast put into this movie. Now when I watch it, I can't help but laugh at Kip and his hot Internet babe LaFawnda, Pedro's family member "enforcers" and on and on... Napoleon’s dance is brilliant. Give this movie a chance, it grows on you like those family members who drive you nuts, but you know they are trying to be the best people they can be. Once you get to know their lives, and their troubles, their minor achievements become major accomplishments, and like this movie, a cause for celebration
this was the greatest and funniest movie i've ever seen....i am counting the days until i will own it...YAY!!!!!! Everyone should see at at least once....you're a fool if you don't love it!!!!
i really liked this movie. it made me laugh. it was also very moving in some way. i think it's a great comedy and if you just want a movie to watch on a friday night with some friends or with family, this is the movie to watch! i especially like it because it was released on my birthday, December 21!!! AWESOME MOVIE!
It's simple. There are two groups. One group gets this movie and one doesn't. The Napoleon/Pedro/Deb's and the Summer/Ron types. If you were a popular, prep, jock (Nothing wrong with that) You won't get this movie. Your school years came from a different perspective then the other group. But, if you ever felt a little outside the main cliques, ever spent way to much time outside practicing made-up martial arts moves, ever felt wrong in your own skin, you will totally get this movie. It's freakin' AWESOME! ESPECIALLY if you were ever a teen in the 80's.
This movie provides endless hours of hilariously funny saying's 'I'm voting for pedro sanchez gaah' and 'these are my tator-tots' oh what fun it is to really be at home with watching yourself on big screen.
This movie was so funny!! The ppl who didn't like this movie have no sense of humor and probably thought Napoleon was cool or something. Or maybe it reminded them of themselves. You should rly watch this movie!!!!!!!!!!!
I Really Loved this Film,Alot!!! I had just Felt that the Film was Speaking to Me & I Could Definitely Relate to the Main Characters!!!
