    Ha! It's kinda funny...my boyfriend and I went to see it in the movies when it came out, and we hated it, so we walked out half way through. THEN when it started playing on cable, we watched it again, and loved it! It's hillarious!!!!

    You have to watch it atleast twice to real get it I think. The first time I saw it, I hated it but then i watched it a couple more times and saw the funny in it although I am still not a big fan of it. But I can see where people find it funny.

    Yeah, it's pretty much the sweetest movie I've ever seen.
     
  7. I thought it was a great movie on a low budget. As far as buying the dvd, I probably will in the distant future. :)

    I've heard that this movie is only funny if you know someone like this. Is this true?

    Watch it again. As I said before, it's better the second time around. Just the fact that it's like the randomist movie ever, makes it more funny! :mamoru:

  11. It makes it more funny if you know someone like this, but even if you don't, it's still pretty funny just at random times throughout the movie.

    I'm going to go against the current and say this is the worst movie I have ever seen.

    Yeh I get it, he's really unconventional, he has a llama for a pet, he buys "time machines" from the internet that shock his balls yeh yeh yeh
     
  15. Any reason why in particular you're saying the movie just sucked all out for any reason? Just out of curiosity.

    you have to first watch it without trying to go against the grain for the sake of it, and then watch it twice because everyone thought it was dumb the first time

    You definately have to watch this movie 2-3 times to get it. The first time I saw it I thought it was the dumbest movie I have ever seen. Now I have seen it a couple more times and think it is still dumb but really funny.

    I saw it 4 times in the theaters before all this hub bub surrounded it...which is well deserving.

    I liked "Napoleon Dynamite". I didn't find it very funny though. I thought there were some poignant scenes, and I could relate to it because I knew a lot of people in high school that were much like the characters in the film. But if you never knew people like that, I suppose they could be seen as being weird for the sake of being weird.

    "Garden State" was similar though, and I hated that movie, so I guess I can see why some people would feel the same about ND. Either you get and click with the weirdness or you don't. But then again, I've heard of more than a few people that hated ND at first but grew to love it after seeing it again. Strange.

    Anyone think that they will be making a sequel after the success of the DVD sales?
