A Strange Comedy for Kids...
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE is a hit with kids across the nation. After I learned that my ex-art teacher went to college with the director, I decided to try it out. I'm glad I did, becuase now I understand all of those weird "liger" and "vote for pedro" t-shirts at the store. But it really wasn't amazing. It had some funny parts, but it wasn't great.
Violence is minor, mild, and it consists of bullies holding Napoleon in a head-lock in the school hallways. There aren't any real curse words used, but "flippin'", "what the frick", and "freakin'" are used several times each. Sex consists of a sleazy salesman trying to sell cheap breast enhancers to women. Napoleon sticks up for his friends, but I wouldn't rely on him for much.
There are some funny parts, but Napoleon Dynamite mostly comes across as somewhat of a waste of time.
