Napoleon Dynamite

I just watched Napoleon Dynamite. I was expecting the usual crappy teen movie (a genre I kind of like anyway) but it turned out to be a genuinely entertaining film.

The film has a plot so thin it’s barely there but the real interest is in the characters. The eponymous Napoleon Dynamite, played by Jon Heder, is a study in supreme nerdiness. In fact most of the main characters are painfully awkward.

It seems to have got mixed reviews but if you like quirky humour and you were even slightly nerdy in school I recommend giving it a go.
It also has a great soundtrack. Here’s a sample courtesy of Seeqpod:
