I have a strange fondness for Napoleon Dynamite.
Maybe it reminds me of how awkward I was in high school, or perhaps it has something to do with Deb’s puffy sleeves. (I have a picture of me in high school with some wicked puffy sleeves on my prom dress…and the hair-wall…Bodacious!)
And who can forget the touching moment when Nacho Libre looks at Chancho with feeling and says, “Chancho, when you are a man…sometimes you wear stretchy pants…in your room…It is for fun.”
Jared & Jerusha Hess have done it again.
Gentlemen Broncos is coming to a theater near you (October 2009).
The first time I watched this hilarious preview, milk spewed out from my nose. It was that good. Take a look.
Being a writer and attending many conferences, I couldn’t help but fall down in laughter when Jemaine Clement, who plays Ronald Chevalier, quotes the line that I’m sure will be quoted for many years to come:
“I assuming you love to write fantasy fiction, except the character names in your stories are suffering. Need thou not be afraid. We can add –onius, -ainus, or…-anous, to just about anything and it becomes magical.”
I wish I would have had this information before writing that YA fantasy fiction. I could have changed my character names to Deronius and Kathainus.
Maybe I can just change my name to Carolonius. It sounds so magical.
