Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

Directed by
Jared Hess

Jared Hess's 2004 high-school comedy has become a cult movie, but it's hardly a classic. Its quirky, offbeat style and some memorable quotes has spawned a legion of die-hard fans and generated huge merchandise sales (such as the "Vote For Pedro" T-shirts), but it lacks consistent laughs. And the lack of a tangible plot makes it hard to see where it's all leading to.

Jon Heder stars as the eponymous Napoleon Dynamite, who is on the lowest rung of the nerd ladder - even his best friend Pedro Sanchez beats him to a date for the high-school dance. But when Pedro asks Napoleon to be his campaign manager for the school election, how can he refuse? Napoleon's home life is equally strange: his brother Kip, whose waking hours are spent online in chat rooms, and his uncle Rico, who is stuck in 1982, are his only relatives.
