Is it just me, or is Nappy Dynomite so popular because he perfectly represents 16-year-olds from the early nineties? I mean the plastic, homemade lanyards, the whole "flippin'" and "gosh!" over-usage. It was so believable, it was like "A day in the life of a teenage nerd." I was listening to the commentary, and every five seconds, the guy who wrote it would go, "oh this is something my brothers and I used to do," just as I was beginning to think "where did he think of this, I know people who did this, I am someone who did this!"

Yes Doomy I know what you talkin about girl!

Valley is very right.....I love this movie! My whole gang of friends and I have a Napoleon following......I've made many a people watch the clips from the movie on that site.....they're so fun to watch over and over. What i've come to learn though....is people really either hate it strongly....or have a strong affection for it!

It just came to DVD last week.....I haven't bought it as of yet. But plan on it! so are there other great extras I should know about?

"I see you're drinking 1% milk. Is that because you think you're fat? Because you're not. You could probably be drinking whole milk."

What are you drawing?
A liger.
What's a liger?
It's pretty much my favorite animal. It's like a lion and a tiger mixed... bred for its skills in magic.

Oh Gosh, I hope so. My sister had me watch it, but we had to take it back (we had rented it) before I got to see all the "Flippin' Features," I only got to see a little bit of the commentary. I love how when they talk about drawings, it's all about the shading. "It's prob'ly the best shading I've ever done."

I just watched the commentary...Doomy! It was hillarouis! I loved the part about how Napoleon's moon boots belonged to someones Uncle and how as a child they all wore theirs way into the spring...The whole commentary felt like reading one of our flashbacks here on the Rewind.
I was cracking up once again at the masterpiece that is Napoleon Dynamite but with excellent commentary!!!! [Big Grin]

"Pedro offers you his protection."

and serouisly how funny was La Fawnduh and Kip at the picnic table.......I can't help but laugh so loud at them.....soooooo cute! Her smile his winking......haaaaa!

i saw it this morning, thanks to my bro for buying it yesterday. the movie was enjoyable because i cracked up at so many pointless scenes, the dialogue was hilarious, omg the wardrobe, and most of all, napoleon's voice.

"SWEET" movie.

Just watched it and I thought it was pretty funny. The quirky characters were hilarious. Recommend it to all to put on their must see lists. This includes you Isis and Rocksteady.

Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

Just saw this movie tonight loved it!!!

UNCLE RICO Napoleon, you know we can't afford the fun pack. What, do you think money grows on trees in this family? Take it back! And get some Pampers for you and your brother while you're at it.

I know I mentioned this in a post over on the 80's board but if you guys liked Napoleon, see the movie Wellcome to the Dollhouse. It came out in the mid 90's. I had never seen anything like it in my life. It's the EXACT kind of humour Napoleon has. You'll love it. It's beyond hilarious [Big Grin] .
