Plot Summary

From the rural town of Preston, Idaho, comes Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder). With a red 'fro, his moon boots, and illegal government ninja moves, he is a new kind of hero. His family consists of fragile brother Kip (Aaron Ruell), who's seeking his soulmate in online chat rooms; Uncle Rico (Jon Gries), who is stuck in his "glory" days of high school football; and Grandma (Sandy Martin), who enjoys going out to the dunes on her quad-runner. Napoleon spends his days drawing magical beasts, working on his computer hacking skills to impress the chicks, and begrudgingly feeding his Grandma's pet llama. When his friend Pedro (Efren Ramirez) decides to run for class president, it is Napoleon to the rescue to help him triumph over adversity.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: For most of its length this delivers a steady stream of uncomfortable gut laughs. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Napoleon Dynamite may be forcefully weird and intermittently humorous, and you might not know what the heck to make of it, but there's nothing shocking about its screenplay. – Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Jul 24, 2007

Fresh: The movie merits a low-wattage recommendation even though it's short on things to say. – Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: May be the most condescending comedy ever to imagine itself being too cool for the room. – Terry Lawson, Detroit Free Press, Jun 24, 2010

Napoean Dynamite!!

NonsStop stupidty funnyness Buy It, cuz your gonna wanna watch it again...... and again yes if you agree

Napoleon is Dynamite!!!

Seriously, this movie is very funny and well done. Actor Jon Heder is very promising. His other good movie is "School For Scoundrels". Get them both. But Apple, why the option for "renting" movies and not purchasing them. Why can't we have both choices? Wake up, Apple!

best movie ever

you need to let us buy this movie!!! let us buy it! i want to buy it!
