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
Soo funny, me and my freinds were laghing about it for weeks after seeing it. So dont be such an idiot and buy this.
I think that this is the most hilarious movie I've seen. If you haven't seen it you have too!! You think a movie about some dorkey white kid with a red afro would be boring ....think again go so NAPOLEON DYNAMITE its great!
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!!!!
My friend begged me to see this the second it came to Indiana. I had to wake up for a really early show and we were the only ones in the theatre. I've heard some tough critism for this movie, but I went anyway. Once the movie started and my friends started laughing, I really got into that movie. It's brillance is that it's like a smart sitcom television show, but without a laugh track (Thank God). About the tough reviews, they're not in high school. It smartly showed the diffrent cliches and way of populalarity in high school. Many movies and shows try, but it's the same thing over again. This was funny and smart. Like a Revenge of the Nerds in high school. This was the funniest movie this year. Although I am only in high school, I've seen many types of movies, and unlike my peers, I prefur a lot of the older movies. Casablanca and Alfred Hitchcock movies are still my favorite movies.
Hilarious movie, have seen only once but would see it again a hundred times once its out on dvd. "Come'on Tina eat your ham!"
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is, by far, the movie of the year 2004!!! It is hilarious, sincere, and not afraid to show the inner dork in us all. Everyone must see this movie!!!
I just saw this film in Toronto - what a Friggin' Gem. It's probably the best comedy film ever made. I am still laughing out loud. It captured the a fringe of student that everyone always recognized or was a part of. My favorite aspect of this film was the self confidence it displayed. It didn't poke fun of nerds as a self-concious, would-be, mean spirited high school student would. The angle it used was truly refreshing and understated. Must see. I never buy DVDs retail, this will be the first.
this is probably one of the funniest movies of all time. there is no grey area with this movie, you either love it or you hate it. Ex. my friends and i went to see it and even though the theatre was full we were the only people laughing or who understood the humor in the movie
This is the funniest movie ever made! it made my drink come out my nose while watching it!
I am not much of a fan of comedy movies, but this movie is probably the funniest I have ever seen. It is a must have for any collection.
I think I can safely say this is the funniest movie I have ever seen. Wow.
This movie was so hilarious. I love Napoleon and Pedro. All of the characters are so funny. If you enjoy random humor, you'll love this!
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.
This movie is hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was laughing the whole time when I saw i in the theatre!! A must see!!!! HECK YES!!!!
I think this movie made me laugh so hard that i was about to wet my pants
I loved this movie so much. It hardly makes any sense and that's what 's so funny. Even the commercials are hilarious. All the phrases are great. Like HECK YES or flippin' awesome! BUY THIS MOVIE!!
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's way too funny you'll laugh all the way 'till it ends! We almost fell off our seats watching this! A MUST-SEE, A MUST-HAVE!!! A movie where the characters didn't have to try hard to make you laugh!!! I LOVE IT!
This movie is so funny! I love the one liners he gives like 'Will you bring me my Chapstick? My lips hurt real bad'., or 'I TOLD YOU! I spent last summer with my uncle hunting wolverines'. I would recommend this movie because it is just so off the wall funny.
This move is sooo funny. It is like no matter how bad your day is going or how bored you are, when you watch this movie it makes your day. I so loved the lama and Pedro was my favorite person!!! There is like no really plot, which makes it funny. And it is like you know someone who acts just like Napoleon!
This movie is so great! I love indie films, unsuual stuff, this is great!! Definetely one you can watch again and again.
This movie was so funny because it reminded me of my abusive dad. I have to say this is the second funniest movie ever! You should waste your twenty dollars on this hi-lirauos movie
This movie was pretty funny the first time I saw it but it just got old fast. I hated it the 2nd time is saw it.
