From the ashes of filmmaker Jared Hess' hilarious short film Peluca comes this tale of tots, moon boots, and one of the most unlikely screen heroes ever to step before the cameras as 20th Century Fox brings the breakout indie hit Napoleon Dynamite to DVD. Viewable in either 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen or 1.33:1 pan-and-scan, the image looks great as wood paneling and drab carpeting fill the frame with a startlingly authentic Midwestern malaise rarely captured on film. Colors are evenly balanced, and there is little evidence of digital artifacting or edge enhancement. Audio is presented in English Dolby Digital 5.1 and Spanish Dolby Digital Surround with optional English, Spanish, and French subtitles. An audio commentary with director Hess, producer Jeremy Coon, and actor Jon Heder is fairly lightweight, with the trio frequently joking and offering fun trivia about the film rather than focusing on technical details. Optional commentary is also provided on the pre-Napoleon Dynamite short film Peluca, and it's fun to see the lead character's origins in the entertaining student film. A hilarious gallery of still images highlights some of the quirky details seen all too briefly in the actual feature, and viewers are offered the opportunity to see Napoleon in action on the kickball field in a collection of deleted scenes. For those who just can't get enough, the filmmakers have taken a trip back to Preston to film "The Wedding of the Century," and viewers are offered the opportunity to join them as they reunite to film an additional scene. The cast is obviously having a great time coming together again, and the feature provides an excellent opportunity for the actors to reveal what appealed to them about the characters and the script. Napoleon Dynamite fans will certainly find much to enjoy on this fantastic 20th Century Fox release.

I had the other blu-ray version, but saw this one on the value rack with the liger slipcover, and I had to have it since I'm a huge fan of this film. It's the same blu-ray version, but with different print on the disc, and some other goodies including the DVD. If you get a chance you should watch it with your soul mate. Peace.

When you watch this movie, it feels like nothing happens throughout, but this movie definitely leaves an impact as it's humor is so simple yet so real and funny.
