  • movie Description
  • The movie revolves around the solitary, listless teenager, Napoleon Dynamite, and his less than impassioned quest to help Pedro win the class presidency at their small western high school. Napoleon's home life is bizzare to say the least and his ability to deal with the opposite sex is limited, so despite Napoleon's apparent inability to express any type of enthusiasm, the film sparks many laughs.
