Genres are: Comedy, here is the storyline: A listless and alienated teenager decides to help his new friend win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home. He is in quite a few scenes. All the schools I attended had somebody like Napoleon: nerdy for certain, often weirdly hostile, but pretty nice if you managed to get to know them. Oh, and might as well watch the wedding at the end. Napoleon's home life is odd: he and his 32-year-old brother Kip live in the Middle of Nowhere, Idaho, with their grandmother and her llama, Tina.
If they like the movie, we tell them we were in it. Anyway it has been a great adventure. Napoleon seemed like he had just experienced a lobotomy throughout most of the movie. As with his real-life counterparts, he can be hard to figure out. This site is absolutely legal and contain only links to other sites on the Internet: youtube. But this time he makes two new friends, glamor shot photographer Deb and Mexican transplant Pedro Sanchez. I had the intention of getting up and finding something better to do after 15 minutes in like going to bed , but it was sort of like watching a train wreck and I was tired enough that the good judgement portion of my brain apparently had already checked out for the evening.
Most of the pranks and etc. But more often they're good, and by the end of the movie, you understand what he's all about. Who said 15 year olds aren't fun? I live in Preston, Idaho and I am a neighbor to Jared Hess. Yet he's always true to himself, sometimes with bad results.

It has been a fun experience especially when we travel and people find out we were in the movie. You'll see how things turned out and get to experience the overall cringe factor that the movie exudes all at once! Lyle, the man who killed the cow lives less that a mile away and I still take family and friends to meet him. My grandson attended most of the filming hoping to be seen in the movie. A couple of days before the last day of filming I was invited to be the secretary in the high school scene. It will also make you wince, laugh, clap, and maybe even dance for happiness. If they didn't like it we just move on. Overall, the movie was just really kind of sad and depressing.
The director, in other words, doesn't try to tell us what to think--and that's what makes Napoleon Dynamite refreshingly, wonderfully different from pretty much any other teen movie you've ever seen. I watched the filming of this movie during the month of July the summer it was filmed in Preston. I live across the street from the Llama, Tina and we have had a lot of people stop in to talk about the movie. But if you have even a little weirdo in your personality--and unless you're Summer Wheatley, you do--you might like Napoleon. Ended up renting and watching it because my daughter's boyfriend wanted to watch it.
The dialogue is stilted for effect, it seems , the humor is subtle, and Napoleon's actions are often puzzling. Most people will either love or hate this movie. . My payback for this moment of bonding was to have the lines repeated back to me for weeks on the way to school, the way home from school, at dinner, through the bathroom door, and get responses in the Napoleon style whenever I asked him to do anything. Here's hoping that this style of storytelling will continue to grow in popularity and produce more classic movies. If you insist on watching it, save yourself some time and just skip towards the end when he does his dance routine after Pedro's speech, as that's pretty much the best part. I guess that's understandable for people who are more used to codified teen films like Ferris Bueller's Day Off, where Ferris's perspective dominates so much that he even tells the audience when to go home.
The best part of the storytelling, for me anyway, was how the events of the movie just unfold, without judgment or explanation. The neutral perspective may be what caused many critics, including the late Roger Ebert, to pan the film. At last, his life starts to change for the better--even after Grandma gets in an accident and creepy Uncle Rico comes to stay while she recovers. If you ever wondered what it'd be like to be that guy or girl , Napoleon Dynamite will show you. All of the major characters suffered some sort of significant dysfunction. . .
