such an idiot
Finally saw Napolean Dynamite this weekend, and I finally understand how it's a "love it or hate it" kind of movie.
We loved it, but it left us drained afterwards. Absolutely hilarious, but there isn't a single non life-draining character in the whole movie. Pedro is by far the very worst. If a character was a temperature, he would be absolute zero. I'm not sure if it's possible to emote any less and still be alive.
We actually had to throw in some animation just to wake us back up afterwards. It sucked our energy dry. The only thing I'd change is the ending that allows the Uncle to redeem himself. He's a non-redeeming character. He doesn't get redemption. But then, when your movie's made by Mormons, I guess everyone gets a happy ending?
