Crop And Save
Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
I wanted to shoot myself in the head
UGH! I hated this film! I read people's reviews saying "Don't look for a deeper mean, enjoy the jokes" How? They were awful, they weren't funny. I think I MAY have laughed twice in the whole film! Sure the characters are realistic, we all knew someone like these guys in High School, but that doesn't mean it's funny.(Unless you mocked people like them in High School) Now, I live in Oregon and am LDS, I went to the same school and same church Jon Header did (I didn't know him personally though) so maybe the crap was really over done in my circle of friends. But when my now husband and I went and saw this we almost died from lack of brain activity! It was simply awful.
For those few who may not have seen it, it's about a young man who is, to be nice let's say social awkward, his friends who are a bit of social outcasts(they wouldn't have been popular in my school), one of whom is running for class president, and their lives at a particular time is high school. It continues through their "adventures" with about as much humor and enjoyment and a sack of dung. I will admit a scene still makes me laugh, Pedro and the piñata, but that is about it.
Overall, don't waste your time, or if you choose to, be warned.
