Trivia

  • The title is a reference to the Ben Folds Five song "One Angry Dwarf and 200 Solemn Faces." Nick Palmer choose the title not only because the song is about a teenager who has problems with girls, and is always getting beaten up, but because the song was something of an anthem to him in high school, and considering the film is based on his high school life, it only seemed appropriate.

Quotes

Russell Fenton: Alright Russell, you've spent the last 17 years of your life dicking around, taking whatever life gave you and just waiting for something good to come along. It's time to put an end to that. It's time to be a man. It's time to get some goddamn confidence! You need to go out there, and ask that girl to the party. And then, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, a new Russell Fenton will emerge to take the women of the world by storm! Go get 'em, you fuckin' pimp!

One Angry Dwarf is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen, Nick Palmer has truly caught on film what teenage life is really like!
21 June 2002 | by (california) – See all my reviews

One Angry Dwarf makes me laugh more and more every time I see it! Anyone can appreciate what Russel is going through because we have all been in that awkward teenage time when nothing turns out the way it should! I would recommend One Angry Dwarf to anyone who wants to re-live life as a hormonal teen through a very lovable but confused Russel Fenton.
