Napoleon Dynamite Dodge Ball
Mike came over last night for Movie night and we watched Napoleon Dynamite and Dodge Ball. Both of these movies are about lovable losers who overcome their disadvantages to succeed. While they are both comedies, Napoleon Dynamite is the quirkier of the two, with characters who come across as depressed and somewhat retarded. The funniest part of Napoleon Dynamite to me was the amazing resemblance between the character of Uncle Rico and my brother, David. Weird character, weird brother. Dodge Ball is a bit more mainstream and formulaic. I recommend both of them if you are in the mood for some light comedy in a "revenge of the nerds" type film.
