Napoleon Dynamite - please explain!!

HHassist's picture

My hubby and I are watching Napoleon Dynamite right now. Well, he's falling asleep on the couch and I'm Googling movie reviews while we're counting down the minutes left before the movie ends.

I know a few of you mentioned that you think this movie is hysterical. What are we missing?!?! We both like comedies and we both have a good sense of humour, I think. But we just don't get it -- why does everyone think this movie is so funny?! All the reviews I found say that it's hilarious, the best movie ever, hysterically funny..... I don't think either of has has laughed once yet :(

Can someone please explain what we're missing??

26 minutes left...

There was one sort-of funny part close to the end, but that was the only time either of us laughed. I don't know what it is about the movie, but it really bothered me -- I didn't like the music or the characters or the storyline (or more like the lack of a storyline!!)

Maybe people who don't get it aren't hip enough -- or, maybe the problem is that we're way beyond hip!! :D

At any rate, my hubby and I both agree that I'm not allowed to select movies anymore ;)
