Napoleon Dynamite's his name ... don't wear it out. From the rural town of Preston, Idaho, comes one of the most memorable screen characters in recent memory. With a tight red 'fro, some sweet moon boots, and illegal government ninja moves, he is a new kind of hero. His family consists of fragile brother Kip, who's seeking his soulmate in online chat rooms; Uncle Rico, who is stuck in his 'glory' days of high school football; and Grandma, who enjoys going out to the dunes on her quad-runner. When his friend Pedro decides to run for class president, they must rely on their knowledge of cows, pinatas, and a surprise special talent if they are to defeat the stuck-up Summer Wheatley.
