Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

Posted 26/02/2007 by Edward Davies in Comedy

Starring : Jon Heder, Jon Gries, Efren Ramirez, Aaron Ruell, Tina Majorino
Director : Jared Hess
Running Time : 91mins

Perpetual loner Napoleon Dynamite (Heder) decides to help one of his few friends, Pedro (Ramirez), to become school president in a series of increasingly silly plans just so he can make the school a better place than it would be under president contender Summer Wheatley (Haylie Duff).

Basically I thought this film was a little too over-hyped for it’s own good. I was expecting a masterpiece of cinematic beauty to grace my screen, instead I got a very slow and slightly boring film. Despite some interesting characters, and a great dance scene towards the end, nothing really happens throughout the film. It feels like it would work better as a series of three minute sketches rather than a 90 minute film.

Verdict : 5/10
