Napoleon Dynamite released one year ago today

Posted on June 11, 2005 at 11:30 PM

I wasn't fortunate enough to see Napoleon Dynamite in the theater and only saw it for the first time about 6 months later. I received it on DVD as apart of one of those white elephant gift exchanges. The main reason why I didn't see it sooner was because the CEO wasn't too keen on it as she didn't think the trailer was all that funny. After all, running a corporation as large as doesn't afford one the kind of time where you can see any movie out there. You have to pick and choose the movies you want to see carefully, because if it's a stinker it could be 3 months before you get a chance to see something else.

For those of you who have seen the movie, you know it's always a wise move to vote for Pedro:

kadavy as Pedro

For the rest of you who don't have a clue as to who Pedro is or why you should vote for him, buy the movie so you too can know what all the cool kids are talking about.

Without a doubt one of the best comedies every. Actually, the only people I know who hate it are people who don't make the nicest friends.

We saw it opening night in the theatre. The first showing was sold out and we were like "huh?" We didn't know MTV had been promoting it. The 4 of us were going because we heard the director was a BYU film school grad and we all either went there or had friends who did. When we went to the later showing, we were surrounded by teenagers. It was kind of nice. All of us being over 30, we were invisible to the crowd. LOL

So have you memorized it yet?

Hey, Renee. I caught you a delicious bass.

No, I don't have the whole movie memorized quite yet, but there definitley are a lot of quotable lines.

My favorite Nappy D sites are the various Napopelon Dynamite Soundboards that have popped up all over the internet.
