Bob Cechacek’s review published on Letterboxd:
My favorite comedy movie of all times. Most people will not understand how can anyone find any of it funny, small percentage will love it. Everything about the movie is hilarious.
Most cult movies could be made so much better with minor tweaks, but I can’t think of anything that ought to be changed in Napoleon Dynamite – the movie is perfect as it is.
Movies with a similarly absurd and unhumorously hilarious and deadpan delivery of lines are probably Kevin Smith’s Clerks 1 & 2, US version of The Office (Jim’s character) at times.
Napoleon complimenting on his love-interest’s physical attributes: “I see you’re drinking 1% [milk]. Is that ’cause you think you’re fat? ’Cause you’re not. You could drink whole if you wanted to.”
