YMMV: Napoleon Dynamite

Film

  • Fountain of Memes: Everything Napoleon says. "Gosh!" "Frickin' idiot!" "I like your sleeves." "Fine!"
  • 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. [1]
  • 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, which is part of the appeal, as well as part of the problem.
  • Watch It for the Meme: Or at least, the lines all your friends have been repeating ad nauseum.
