I guess I don't get it.

My girlfriend came over with her kids the other night and brought "Napoleon Dynamite" for us to watch while the kids watched Spongebob. We had both heard that the movie was SOOOO great! SOOOO funny! Let's WATCH IT, we said. It couldn't have sucked more. I think I have a pretty good sense of humor. I can even empathize with types of humor I personally don't find funny (such as Tom Green). I "get" why other people might like things I don't like. This movie did not fall under this category. I really couldn't find one single redeeming quality of this "film". About ten minutes into it, my friend and I looked at each other and agreed that it had better start getting funny a-sap! Um, nope. Never happened. I don't really have a point, other than to say that that was two hours of my life I will NEVER get back. Please, learn from my mistakes.

We're going to take another shot in the dark later this week and try "Harold and Kumar go to White Castle". We've heard that one was good, too. It may be more up my alley than "Napoleon" was. I could use a good laugh these days so I'm more willing to go out on a limb than usual. I'll let you know how it goes. I would make the trek to our local comedy club, but since they allow smoking, the smell alone just might kill me. Plus, stand-up tends to be just a smidge funnier when you've had a cocktail or two. Perhaps I'll keep that in my post-baby bag of tricks. Cheers!

I really like Harold and Kumar go to White Castle. some bits are a bit ridiculous and drag on but overall its a good laugh!
I know it's probably too late to save you, but Harold and Kumar is not that funny. You could watch the trailer a couple of time and save yourself an hour and a half. As far as Napolean Dynamite goes, if you hadn't heard it was hilarious you may have liked it more. It was the same way with me when I saw it. It's funnier to think about his dumb ass after having seen it though. "Can I have your tots?"
