Dynamite is not "The Bomb", it is a bomb!

Last night my husband and I watch the movie Napoleon Dynamite. For those of you who don't know this movie listen up because I can save you $4.00 at your local video store. For those of you who are already familiar with the movie, all I can say is I'm sorry.

I'm sorry that last year when Tim and I were actually in Preston Idaho we had an opportunity to see this movie for free. That way I could have let you all know and saved you even more money. We decided not to see it because we thought it would be a low budget crappy movie with poor acting, but with all of the rave reviews (from people I know and respect) and awards, I finally decided to rent it.

I've been told that I need to see it more than once to enjoy it, but considering that was 2 hours of my life that I will never get back, I don't think I'm going to watched it again. I must be completely out of it. I imagine this movie is like smoking. How you ask? You have to try it enough to push past the disgusting after taste to enjoy it, by then you are addicted. Its not good for you and neither is this movie.

I'm sorry for being so harsh because although I didn't like it, one good thing is no nudity or profanity.

You are right...and I am so glad that someone else other than me thought it was a waste of my precious time. *sigh*

Cute smoking analogy. I did, unfortunately, think that the dance scene with Alphaville's "Forever Young" playing, and the 3 of them looking into the throng was brilliant. As for cow-shooting and steak-throwing - I can get that anywhere.

PS I don't think your posts are too personal, just daringly so. ;)

Whatever Bjorn! You raved about that movie, your free t-shirt and bought the movie. I agree it is a cult classic sort of movie. The fun comes from quoting the movie into everyday life-like: "Luckky"

First time I thought whats the big deal, there was the odd speck of delight and laughter, but overall it was okay. Now when I watch with little expectation it becomes even more humourous. I still love Jamiroqui and Napoleon performing their acid-jazz funk together on stage

Alyson,
I hated Napolean Dynamite -- actually, I loath Napolean Dynamite. I watched it 1 and a half times. I think I almost laughed. Anyway, I like your blog -- betcha didn't know I was actually reading it, did ya?
