The Smartest Dumb Comedy Ever Made
Napoleon Dynamite (yes, that’s his real name) is an outcast student in Preston, Idaho. But he befriends some other outcasts and in their own strange way they may just make themselves known. There may not be a definite plot, but it would be something like that.
I am calling this film “the smartest dumb comedy ever made” because the humor is all really stupid — one-liners, absurd events and situations… with characters that really are not your typical movie heroes. But it’s clear the people behind the film are not dumb at all. There’s a hidden gem in this film.
The problem may be that the smartness is not on the surface. The first time I saw the film, I thought it was lame. The second time, I loved it. The third time, loved it more. I showed it to a friend once, who disliked it, but I wonder if she tried it again… and saw the genius. (Some might argue that “Freddy Got Fingered” is similar… I’m not going to try that here.)
