Aroview: Destined for cult status, this plays like a high school comedy made by its alienated students, with its quirky in-jokes and non-sequiturs aimed squarely over the heads of the crowd.
Pitching its 'comedy of indifference' between the do-it-yourself kitsch of John Waters and the fragmented off-beats of Wes Anderson (RUSHMORE), this has an 80s pop soundtrack and stylings ala DONNIE DARKO, with which it also shares its outsider sentiment. But it ekes out laughs where there rightly shouldn't be, especially in the quibbling banter between sneering uber-nerd N. Dynamite and his fey, equally snarky sibling.

4 stars (Very Good) The life of Napoleon Dynamite, a hopelessly inept high school misfit whose only friend is the new Hispanic student, Pedro. It looks a lot like the 80's, but with the Internet. Loved the ending - very original and heaps of fun.~GenXGirl
