Synopsis


Napoleon Dynamite
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. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

    Huge fan of this film. I ran across it while looking for another blu-ray (and my chapstick b/c my lips hurt real bad!) It was on sale for $5.99 so I had to buy it! Gosh! The transfer is pretty sweet...it's got shocks, pegs, lucky! But, on a serious note, here's the breakdown: I already have it on DVD so I can make the comparison. I have a 4k blu ray player, 4k tv and arc audio setup with high quality hdmi cables. Blu-ray turns out to be only a small improvement in audio and video quality upscaled to 4k from blu-ray vs DVD. A little more crisp and vibrant, audio is a little better, but not blow your mind better. Just decently better. I prolly could've lived with the upscaled to near 4k DVD quality, but for $5.99, it's worth the source upgrade. Also, something interesting to note is that all blu-rays I have on the back of the case it will say 1080p somewhere. On the back of the Napoleon blu-ray case it just says "blu ray disc, the ultimate high definition experience." No mention of a 1080p spec which is a little strange...

    Napoleon Dynamite takes you back to '82 where Uncle Rico is able to "throw a pigskin a quarter o' mile", Pedro makes all your wildest dreams come true, and Grandma takes a little spill at the sand dunes! This movie has great skills! And girls only want guys with great skills! From Napoleon's dance to Kip's new love, Lafawnduh, no one can say that this film is lacking. Though the true value lies in friendship. Napoleon and Pedro, Uncle Rico and Kip, Deb and Napoleon, and even Summer Wheatly and Trisha (who don't need whatever Uncle Rico is selling. Unlike Lance who is a strong young pup and should buy the tupperware for his wife, even if only to get the mini sailboat.). When YOU take a look at this edition of the classic movie Napoleon Dynamite, you should say "I want that!" So grab a copy of your own today because you know Napoleon won't give you any of his tots! Gosh! Freaking idiot!

    If you're not familiar with this film, be aware that it is one oddball kind of film. With that said, you will see characters that are enduring, and sweet. I find myself grinning every time I watch it. The disk looked fantastic. It has a commentary by the writer/director and the main star, which I have yet to listen to. It also has assorted other features like the "wedding at the cemetery". It comes with both Blu-ray and DVD discs. You can either view it widescreen or 4 x 3 on the Blu-ray, I'm not sure about the DVD. So if you're a fan of this film, I think you would enjoy purchasing this disk. I purchased it for I believe eight dollars at Best Buy. Which I think is a very good deal.

    No matter how many times I've watched this whacked-out trip to Idaho, there will always be some ridiculous visual or line or exchange that will send me over the edge. While sort of aping on Wes Anderson's style through-out, NAPOLEON is almost more of a spoof than a rip-off & contains a glowing core of good-feeling happiness, as opposed to disaffected emotional trauma as much of Mr. Anderson's flicks harbor. This gem came outta left field, and through a rare mega-burst of advertising (at least for a picture this small), it became a super-hit. A must-have for every movie collection. Peace out.

    Almost impossible not to laugh at this one

    The first time I watched this was after so many people had told me how funny it was. I thought it looked stupid so when I finally did see it, I tried my hardest not to laugh. I think I lasted about two minutes. Some of the comedy is genius while some is really adolescent but still very funny. The visual humor can take a lot of the credit as well. If you love smart comedy that's presented in a brilliantly stupid way, this picture is for you. If you just take life a little too seriously, you may wanna pass on this one and choose one about Napoleon the French emperor.

    Odd, but Funny!

    Napoleon Dynamite struck me as one of those movies that would be in the theater for a weekend and then gone. However, while it didn't do incredible business at the box-office, it did just enough to get people talking, which in turn ended up making it one of the biggest dvd hit releases of the year when it arrived to home video. Odd and strange, yet lighthearted, this is a recommended film. For those who already have the previous dvd version, investing in this new dvd is probably not necessary, unless you're dying to see the new extras on this release.

    Still holds up very well. Got to watch it with my 9 year old daughter (only 'inappropriate' part really is Uncle Rico selling his enhancements). Pretty goofy and awkward dialogue. She loved it, even though some of it was above her level of humor (some kids don't like the awkward exchanges and don't yet know the turmoil of High School...le sigh). Still great to pop in once in a while. I have a fondness for 80's school movies and this fits right in.

    This movie is one of those types to watch when you just don't know what you want to watch and find it sitting on your shelf and think to yourself "oh, I haven't watched this in 3-5 years." I wouldn't pay more than $6 for this bluray so I picked it out of the $5 bin at Best Buy when nothing else was in the bin but even worse movies. It's still wrapped and I haven't watched it yet so I cannot provide a review on the quality
