YMMV: Napoleon Dynamite
- Fountain of Memes: The whole damn script has appeared on a t-shirt at some point.
- Hype Backlash: Some have found the film to simply be boring and awkward (even though that's sort of the point).
- Love It or Hate It: Netflix's recommendation system, which is generally quite accurate, just can't predict how people will rate this movie
- Nerds Are Sexy: Napoleon developed a huge bevy of fangirls. Enough that some newspapers and magazines ran articles about the phenomenon.
- So Bad, It's Good: Done intentionally, to mixed results.
- Watch It for the Meme: Or at least, the lines all your friends have been repeating ad nauseum.
- Jerkass Woobie: Uncle Rico. In the Animated Adaptation he is despised by pretty much by everyone. At the end of one episode is revealed that he is a very sad and lonely guy.
- So Bad, It's Good: In a manner similar to the movie it was based on.
