Napoleon Dynamite
Indie film about teenage dork celebrates the youthful underdog.

Eagle vs Shark
Like Napoleon Dynamite, Eagle vs Shark is a little wisp of a movie, a lightweight feature loaded with montage and hung on the multidimensional performance of Loren Horsley as Lily.

Hot Rod
Cross Napoleon Dynamite's endearing optimism with Ben Stiller's total commitment to his goofy characters, and you'll wind up with a character something like Andy Samberg's hapless stuntman.

Austenland
Keri Russell plays a woman who vacations in a Jane Austen fantasy camp, but the film is lacking in sense and sensibility.

School for Scoundrels
Although it stars Billy Bob Thornton and Napoleon Dynamite's Jon Heder and is jam-packed with multitalented comedians and stars, School for Scoundrels is just not funny.
