Looking for a good movie to rent this weekend? You can't go wrong with Napoleon Dynamite. Napoleon's not the most popular kid in school (not by a long shot), he's not the most stylish, and he doesn't have any sweet skills (not really). But he does have something big going for him: Good friends. And if there's one thing about good friends, it's that they have your back no matter what--whether its encouraging you to ask that popular girl to the dance or helping you to fend off a nunchuck-wielding ninja. So when his best friend Pedro decides to run against the snobby Summer in the race for class president, Napoleon is all about helping his buddy win--and, in the process, make his classmates' "wildest dreams come true." Even if it means he's got to unleash his secret weapon.
When Napoleon Dynamite hit the movie scene nearly 10 years ago, it was huge! Remember all those people walking around wearing "Vote for Pedro" shirts? But if you missed it the first time around, it's definitely worth watching. And if you've seen it, it's well worth reliving the hilarity a second (or third) time. So kick off your moon boots, cook up some 'tots,' and enjoy! --AJB
