Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

Though the je-ne-sais-quoi bizarreness of Jon Heder is a mysteriously-fascinating showcase of deadpan to watch as our red ‘fro, moon-booted geek navigates Idaho HS, the style is an extreme hate-or-love prospect – bordering on the former for us by how monotonous and blasé it all is. 4/10.

Plot Synopsis: In small-town Preston, Idaho, awkward teen Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder) has trouble fitting in. After his grandmother is injured in an accident, his life is made even worse when his strangely nostalgic uncle, Rico (Jon Gries), shows up to keep an eye on him. With no safe haven at home or at school, Napoleon befriends the new kid, Pedro (Efren Ramirez), a morose Hispanic boy who speaks little English. Together the two launch a campaign to run for class president.
