A dynamite movie?

Yesterday my husband and I watched "Napoleon Dynamite". It's the story about a teenage boy growing up in Preston, Idaho. The people I know who have seen it are divided on whether it is the funniest movie ever or really stupid.

At first, I thought it was OK. It's a movie that has a plot, but the plot isn't the point of the movie. As I watched it, I kept expecting something dramatic would happen, but it never did. But as I looked back on the movie, I kept remembering funny quotes or funny scenes and laughing about it.

My verdict: I think it is a lot like "Monte Python and the Holy Grail" in the sense that it isn't that funny when you are watching it, but it is really funny to remember and quote afterwards.
