    Yes, but probably not worth buying...

    i swear this movie is stalking me

    at lunch with a friend today, she suggested that i watch napoleon dynamite tonight. so on the way home, i called up another friend of mine and before i could ask if he wanted to come over and watch it, he said "dude, ive got napoleon dynamite, and if you haven't seen it, you really really need to. come over here." everyone has been talking about this movie today, and now this thread?! i'm starting to get a little freaked out, haha.

    anyway, yea, the movie was one of the stupidest things i've ever seen. total lack of plot, no exciting events, nothing you'd see in a major movie. the acting was ....unique, to say the least. but napoleon dynamite was one of the funniest movies i've ever seen. it's genious. definate must-see.

    "dang, you got shocks, pegs....lucky! you ever take it off any sweet jumps?"

    as a side note, i bought a zippo lighter while killing time at walmart tonight. i can't stop playing with it. it's too cool. just so you know.

    Go Zen! Zippos are INDESPENSABLE! Along with my mag light and my ruger p89 and my Buck #119....... yeah that's about it. NECCESARY RJ BELT ITEMS!

    Go Zippo!

    Here's a nice trick, if your hands are cold, light the zippo and hold it so it flames the lid, then close it and enjoy.

    I wouldn't rent it. i didn't think it was funny at all, but stupid fits it better. But, everybody seems to think it was funny, so maybe its just me.

    I am usually totally into the DUMB HUMOR type of movies, but I made it about 30 minutes into that waste of 4 bucks and just shut it off. I couldn't even watch the whole thing.

    It all depends, I live with a Napoleon Dynomite (step son):D So some might not get the humor, I also could watch every indy movie ever made before watching some Hollywood blockbuster feed the masses type film....I loved it...

    Shut up Kip you frickin idiot....Gawd...:grin:

    I second RJ's motion you watch Pulp Fiction before your allowed to see anything else!

    I haven't seen Nap. Dynamite, I haven't rushed out to get it/see it...looks a lil sophomoric, but maybe thats the point?:confused:

    i think napoleon dynamite is flippin awesome! some people get the humor, some people dont. i love good indie movies. much better than a hollywood flick with a zillion dollar budget.

    besides, we both know im training to become a cage fighter :D
