Sweet! </Napoleon Dynamite>

There were some really funny-ass moments in this kooky, flaky-ass movie. I especially liked it when Dos Vatos appear - especially when the really hard MFer looks at the shitbird bully and just shakes his head.

There are alot of great and memorable one liners in the film.

It takes a second veiwing to realy understand the movie for what it is worth.

Why does everyone hate this film? Simple film, really. That's all it's meant to be.

Because the word of mouth was so enthusiastic. I got the humor just fine, it just wasn't that funny.

Easily on of the best movies I have seen in the last 5 years. Made me want to move out to small town in Idaho or Montana like in the movie, then I remembered how freakin cold it gets up there

Actually saw it for the first time three days ago...they wife said that she had heard it was pretty good from some people she knew.

We both watched it.

Afterwards, we both agreed that she should never speak to those morons again.

I was concerned after finding out in the beginning credits that MTV was involved with the movie - a bunch of brain-dead drooling imbeciles would probably find this movie funny. OK, maybe I'm being a bit harsh....perhaps someone with an IQ as high as 50 or so might find this piece of tripe humorous. As a matter of fact, I think my own IQ dropped by 15-20 points or so just by watching this piece of crap.

Why did I watch the whole thing? Only because I had heard of this movie, and figured it HAD to get better at some point. At the point when it was mere minutes from the end, I expected there would have to be some massive, intellectual, vitally-important-to-the-security-of-the-free-world sort of revelation, but that was not to be. My time would have been better served (and more enjoyable) by shaving my head with a cheese grater.

I almost took the following day off just so that I could personally apologize to the mailman for making him deliver that idiotic movie to me from Netflix.

Uh, I guess in retrospect that I wouldn't recommend the movie.

Sorry to sound "harsh," but anybody looking to find any great life-enriching upthrust from Hollywood fare is searching for meaning in all the wrong places. It's just a quirky movie with a lot of weird, improbable characters that's a riot to watch... because they're weird, improbable characters.

Pretty simple.

Thats cus your from Lousianna...

If you know anything about Idaho, the movie is hillarious...I went to school 45 mins from Idaho and let me tell.....GOSH....that movie was right on!

The funniest part was when they showed dude wearing a Ricks College shirt....LMAO everyont and their brother out there at one time when to Ricks or Snow College....god that was funny.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 9:42:41 PM EDT
Tried to watch it. Turned it off after 45 minutes. My estimations of those individuals in my life who incessantly spout the one-liners from that film were instantly degraded in my worldview.

And I am a person who rented and watched all of Hellraiser 5 and also that crappy Austrailian zombie movie with the busty chick shooting aliens with triple shotguns. Not as cool as it sounds.

Heh, no, I wasn't looking for anything but entertainment for an evening....I just figured that after an hour of watching, there had to be some earth-shattering reason for ANYONE to sit through that much crap and STILL think it was a good movie.

Nah, just moved to Louisiana from western Colorado three months ago....spent much time in Idaho, and almost moved there.

No offense, but if you're the type of person who thinks that wearing a shirt with writing on it is hilarious, then maybe that explains your affinity for this movie.

Link Posted: 1/6/2006 10:06:03 PM EDT
I thought it was pretty funny movie, even though it was mainly a collection of oddball people.

Too many movies nowadays rely on special effects--that are "easy" to do with computers now. It's just not impressive anymore.

No, actually all my shirts are solid white...I even cut the collar tags off to avoid all semblance of the english language and the possibility of finding humor of any kind....

Umm...it was not simply that a shirt had "writting" on it...it was, and I thought I made this clear, the fact that a guy in the movie was wearing a shirt that said "Ricks College". And there were many many people I met who went there.

The think that really cracks me up though are Quicksilver, Rusty, and Ezekial shirts....fing funny.

You know what they say about opinions. I'm sure there are movies that you love that are viewed as completely rediculous as well.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 11:35:33 PM EDT
It's just a lo-fi, silly little film about uber-white-bread folk. It was bound to disappoint if you listened to any of the hype about it. Go into it expecting nothing, and it is enjoyable enough.

But I understand where all the haters are coming from. I kind of feel the same way about any film with Will Ferrell in it. I'm still waiting for the funny parts at the end credits.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 11:44:19 PM EDT
You can think this movie sucks....until you watch "Neighbors" with Dan Aykroyd in it. Dumbest, most inane, stupid fucking piece of shit ever created.

Just saw it tonight, browsing through Comcast's On Demand Free crap.

Idiotic.

I felt exactly the same way you did. Till I started quoting it's classic one liners a couple weeks later.

Quite possibly the dumbest film ever made. I've sat through films by Roger Corman, Doris Wishman, Albert Pyun, some of the worst directors ever. Napoleon Dynamite was far, far worse than anything they ever made. It will probably spawn a whole batch of similarly idiotic films. I hate MTV and Hollywood.
