1. Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
PG | 96 min | Comedy
A listless and alienated teenager decides to help his new friend win the class presidency in their small western high school, while he must deal with his bizarre family life back home.
Votes: 187,299 | Gross: $44.54M
A charming, quirky, and often funny comedy.
2. Nacho Libre (2006)
PG | 92 min | Comedy, Family, Sport
Berated all his life by those around him, a monk follows his dream and dons a mask to moonlight as a Luchador (Mexican wrestler).
Votes: 76,724 | Gross: $80.20M
At times hilarious, but other times offensive, Director Jared Hess is unable to recapture the collective charisma of his Napoleon characters, instead relying on a one-joke concept that runs out of steam. Sure to entertain the adolescents, however.
3. Gentlemen Broncos (2009)
PG-13 | 90 min | Adventure, Comedy, Sci-Fi
A teenager attends a fantasy writers' convention where he discovers his idea has been stolen by an established novelist.
Votes: 10,444 | Gross: $0.11M
Unselfconsciously juvenile and overwhelmingly quirky, Gentlemen Broncos offers a lot of potty humor but isn't terribly funny.
4. Don Verdean (2015)
PG-13 | 90 min | Adventure, Comedy, Drama
A self-professed biblical archaeologist who has fallen on hard times starts to bend the truth in order to continue inspiring the faithful.
There is little that is worse than satire that tiptoes around its subject, as if risking offense were a sin.
5. Masterminds (I) (2016)
PG-13 | 95 min | Comedy, Crime
A guard at an armored car company in the Southern U.S. organizes one of the biggest bank heists in American history. Based on the October 1997 Loomis Fargo robbery.
Votes: 46,398 | Gross: $17.36M
Masterminds' great cast and stranger-than-fiction true story are largely wasted on a scattershot comedy with a handful of funny moments and far too much wackiness.
