Who would have thought that a movie with no real plot could be so good...
OK, I have seen a lot of negative reviews on this movie. It made me
leery of even seeing it. I work at a video store so I get to see movies
before their street release date. There were a few naysayers at work,
but I rented it anyway. This was a rental well spent. This is the first
movie I have seen in some time that doesn't have swear words or sex in
any form so it is OK for any age. If you are or ever were just a little
bit geeky, Napoleon is the hero for you. This movie is much funnier to
a gen-x'er. There are a lot of things that you won't "get" if you
weren't a part of the 80's. All in all, I think that it is a great way
to spend an evening. I am looking forward to seeing more from this
