Tonight, I watched what has to be one of the dumbest movies ever. Before I say what movie it is, I have to say - I was really looking forward to seeing it. I heard it was hysterically funny....and I like to laugh. Despite how sick I am, I thought it might be good medicine. I'd been waiting for the chance to watch it, and tonight was that night.
Not only was this movie not hysterically funny, I was absolutely dumbfounded how everyone in the movie was "challenged". Maybe that was the humor??? Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of "MTV humor" like everyone else; I loved South Park, JackAss, Viva La Bam, etc... but this??? I watched it about half way through and I got a chuckle or two, but truly only watched because I almost felt like I was the only one in the world who wasn't getting the humor, and I can't be the only one!?!?! I almost felt pressured to think it was a riot, when I just didn't "feel the love" for it.
Napoleon Dynamite just doesnt' do it for me. There are some great one liners in it, and a few quirky moments...but truly not the "great movie" it had been hyped up to be.
After about half the movie, I asked my husband to shut it off; flipping through the channels we found "The Godfather Saga".
Now that, my friends....is a great movie.
