It's one of those that people seem to either love. . . or wonder at how other people love it so much. :P

I personally love it. I think it's that sort of Pythonesque brand of humor, where if you need your jokes to have a point, then you probably won't get it. . . but if you're amused by things that are random (and methinks this includes everyone here), you should enjoy it. :D

I was going to say that could haev beena Python sketch - I see Palin or Cleese delivering it.

John Cleese - I read the other day that he is retiring from performing to concentrate on teaching young comedy actors :cry:

Shame :(

Napoleon Dynamite is definitely odd, but in a great way. It takes place in Idaho--which is near my neck of the woods--and the terrain is very similar to SE Washington.

I think you'll like the movie, Saturn. The storyline is an expansion of a film school project and it retains that "film school/indie" feel. The guys who play Napoleon and his brother are hillarious. I think my favorite plot line in the movie is Napoleon's brother's (can't remember his name!) on-line love affair. Oh, and the sign language performance club that Napoleon belongs to--the scene with them performing. . .was it True Colors by Cyndi Lauper? . . .was great.

My mate has seen it and says it's well worth watching. I'll give it a look.

It's one of the best comedies ever made, I think...understated and damn funny...and I mean damn funny.

Well, I wouldn't say *that*, but it is great. Talking of comedies, I have recently had the pleasure of discovering the great art of Silent comedy through the genius that is Harold Lloyd. Frankly, I've fallen in love (sigh) :lol: His comedic timing and acrobatic stunts are absolutely stellar. Few people today even know who Harold Lloyd is--but in the 20's, he was more popular than Chaplain and Keaton and one look at his silent films will show you why! I highly recommend his works--many of which are now on DVD.

Have you never seen Pride & Prejudice?? Mr. Darcy *never* smiles outwardly. The very idea! :shock: :lol: He just exudes a kind of Romantically tortured smothered passion that is quite attractive. ;)

It's a great avatar, isn't it? I found it on line somewhere and I feel so embarrassed that I can't remember who created it in order to give that person credit :oops:

Not true! He does at the very end after he and Elizabeth are married (very important)!
