I have new respect for Roger Ebert after learning that he is in the 30% minority of reviewers who thought Napoleon Dynamite was a big flaming pile of dog doo. The movie ought to be titled "Napoleon Dynamite: No Joke is Too Obvious." I think one reviewer summed it up nicely with: "Lots of laughs for those who enjoy [sic] sight of bottom dwellers doing stupid things." My friend, Adam, commented that it's like a long advertisement for hate crimes. In the words of Napoleon himself, "This is pretty much the worst video ever made."
