“Napoleon Dynamite” is an odd deadpan comedy. I remember the first couple of times I caught it on TV I didn’t know what to make of it. Then one day I saw it through to the end and it made me laugh though I didn’t know if I liked it exactly. It has a distinct tone and is self-aware but so sure. My pal Jay Jaffe loves it and every time I catch the movie on TV I can hear Jay laughing and that makes me happy.
Anyhow, it’s worth watching for this scene alone (and a nice job by the director in framing this scene so we can see Napoleon’s entire body):
