OK, I have seen a lot of negative reviews on this movie. It made me leery of even seeing it. This is the first movie I have seen in some time that doesn't have swear words or sex in any form so it is OK for any age. If you are or ever were just a little bit geeky, Napoleon is the hero for you. This movie is much funnier to a gen-x'er. There are a lot of things that you won't "get" if you weren't a part of the 80's. All in all, I think that it is a great way to spend an evening. I am looking forward to seeing more from this writer/director.

The most boring film I have ever seen. No wonder it has a bad reputation. I knew it would be stupid, but I thought it would be stupid funny. All I got was stupid. It has no plot whatsoever. Extremely boring. Don't watch it. You'll never get those two hours of your life back.

A few good moments at the end don't make up for the boredom.

Found it extremely painful to watch rather than funny. Fun dance he does near the end though.

This film has great skills. See it with some homemade cheese nachos or tatter tots and red drink.

To me, something being "quirky" (ie: random), does not equate to funny or clever. I guess if one already feels like they are "unconventional", then perhaps, one feels unimpressed with "oddball" things. I guess some people pride themselves TOO much on being "weird", as opposed to actually being genuinely interesting.

Not really my type of humor, although I do still tell people to "make yourself a dang quesadilla!"

This movie is just spot-on hilarious, awesomely funny and pure genius. For those who'd seen the animated show, you'll love this movie. A movie that just flippin' cool. Sweet!

This movie is just plain hilarious. Comedic gold. Cast to a tee with great dialogue and situations. The chemistry and delivery are spot on. I haven't seen a more entertaining PG rated comedy in forever. Has stood up to several viewings. Truly one of a kind.

Deb: What are you drawing?
Napoleon: A liger.
Deb: What's a liger?
Napoleon: It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.

Napoleon: [referring to Deb's milk] I see you're drinking 1%. Is that 'cause you think you're fat? 'Cause you're not. You could be drinking whole if you wanted to.

Napoleon Dynamite: Grandma just called and said you're supposed to go home.
Uncle Rico: She didn't tell me anything.
Napoleon Dynamite: Too bad, she said she doesn't want you here when she gets back because you've been ruining everybody's lives and eating all our steak.
Uncle Rico: I'm not goin' anywhere, Napoleon.
Napoleon Dynamite: Get off my property!
Uncle Rico: It's a free country. I can do whatever I want.
Napoleon Dynamite: Get off my property or I'll call the cops on you.
Uncle Rico: Well then do it! Go on!
Napoleon Dynamite: Maybe I will, GOSH!
