napolean dynamite

brilliant character-led movie with seemingly no point, no direction, no reason; other than poking a little fun at slightly odd people.
do we watch it and question our own idiosyncrasies, those of our family and friends?
do we learn to embrace the social outcasts we see around us?
do we see it as a lesson and reach out to someone new?
no, we have a right ol' laugh at the ultimate geek and his weirdo brother. this isn't about lessons, this is about comedy.
very funny indeed, i love jon heder's performance where everything he does, every movement and delivery is irritating and idiotic. i'm even laughing at the opening shot, before he's even done anything. excellent.
