Napoleon Dynamite

Alright, I doubted my wife when she said she loved this movie. Now that I bought it for her for Valentine's Day I've watched it like 5 times now (that's 4½ more times than I could stomach "Lost in Translation" which supposedly was a great movie...). Something about this type of deadpan humor strikes a chord with me.

I thought it was the dumbest movie ever. I hate it. Everyone at school is always quoting it too. So that might have something to do with me not liking it.

I have found myself saying "GAWD!" to get a cheap laugh out of my sweetie, but then stop. I can imagine that kind of thing could really get run into the ground with this movie.

i hate this movie with a passion ... it is a movie that after watching i was like "well that was a waste of money and my time."

For some reason the sheer stupidity of it just makes it so funny. The whole "Shading on the upper part of your lip"...and he's seriously proud of himself...I find myself singing that little song his brother wrote to his bride when they were getting married...and Deb was wonderful. I was captivated by her. Loved the movie.
