Film Synopsis: The directorial debut of filmmaker Jared Hess, who also co-wrote the screenplay, Napoleon Dynamite is a quirky, offbeat comedy set in the small Idaho town of Preston. Jon Heder stars in the titular role, a carrot-topped oddball with a decidedly eccentric family that includes his llama-loving, dune-buggy enthusiast grandmother. The story centers on the local high school’s race for class president. Using some nontraditional means, Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro (Efrem Ramirez) run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer (Haylie Duff). Also starring The Drew Carey Show’s Diedrich Bader, Napoleon Dynamite premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival. - Matthew Tobey, Rovi
"Jon Heder in the magnificent Napoleon Dynamite, is one of the most winning movie creations in years."- Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"A little movie with a lot of heart and a lot of laughs."- Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"An epic, magisterially observed pastiche on all-American geekhood, flooring the competition with a petulant shove."- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"It's charming. It's hilarious. It is perhaps the most beautifully crafted, lovingly rendered portrait of extreme geekitude ever to grace the screen. It's Napoleon Dynamite. "- Melissa Levine, Dallas Observer
"For older and more reflective viewers, it’s a quirky, fresh slice-of-life more inviting than a tater-tot pyramid. "- Marrit Ingman, Austin Chronicle
