I see the origin of N.D. in this, but I've gotta say, WHAT THE FLIP WAS *THIS* ABOUT?
7 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen Napoleon Dynamite lots of times, and finally learned where I could see Peluca. So I checked it out. I mean, I can see where they got the idea for Napoleon Dynamite for this. Same personality in each character, just different names. Also, the whole "Pedro shaving his head" thing and Napoleon throwing that toy out the window and making it jump around and all. But I must say, Jared Hess must have gone from desperation to domination. Also, maybe if this was longer and had more detail in what Seth, Gayle and Pedro, maybe, just maybe, I'd like it better, despite it being in b/w. The Defiant Ones, was in b/w, yet still a great movie, the same for Schindler's List, but if you watched it in a different DeLuxe format, it could be in color.
