Is it just me, or is Napoleon Dynamite kinda boring?

I stopped the movie at the "fall off the skateboard" scene. 10 minutes, maybe? : P

We suffered through it and really didn't get it. But I understand that if you're 15, it's a great movie.

It's the most overrated film of the last five years.

I mean, it's okay, but it's not that okay.

I will speak in defense of Napoleon Dynamite! Yes, it's overrated but that's not the film's fault. It's definitely a one trick pony but intentionally so. This single minded aesthetic gives it dreariness and a strange realism despite the over the top performances. My favorite thing about it though is how innocent it is. It's this bleak, post modern high school coming of age movie but there's really no sex in it and hardly even any foul language. So somehow, it manages to be sweet and utterly depressing at the same time. I have to admire that.
