I won't bother with that film for a kind of a crazy reason, but an important reason to me. The title.
Napoleon Dynamite was one of the many incarnations of Elvis Costello many years ago. When he played small, unannounced shows he would appear as Napoleon Dynamite and the Royal Guard, or the Impostor, or The Emotional Toothpaste..that kind of thing. Well the hacks who wrote the film swiped the "Napoleon Dynamite" moniker from E. C. and didn't give the guy credit. In fact, they "claim" they had never heard the name before and had no knowledge Elvis Costello used it as. Sounds way, way, way to fishy to me!
I won't support people who steal, be it property or ideas.
