Poor Man's Napoleon Dynamite

2/10
Author: rkampel from London, England
24 November 2011

This movie tries to be quirky by ripping off the more successful Napoleon Dynamite. Lovable geek: check. Retro feel: check. Hammond synth soundtrack: check. The main difference however, is that the acting is really bad (the main character acts like a cross between Zoolander and Napoleon's Pedro), there is no discernible plot, the lines are too repetitive (how many times must he say he hates people) and characters are just too superficial.

I'm at a loss as to how the critics seem to love this movie, including the one who "didn't get" Napoleon Dynamite. I guess for once the bad movie ratings really do it justice.

I connected with this movie in one way: it made me hate people - everyone in it!!
