Napoleon Dynamite.

Napoleon Dynamite (2004) -- The same bland joke over and over, which I suppose is fine if you like the joke, but by 2004 the idea of comedy via 80s retro (the "Wolf T-Shirt" brand of comedy) is really outdated, which makes sense when you consider that this is an MTV movie and they're always about five or six years behind anyway. Besides the style jokes, this is just another movie about a nerd, and not one of the funny ones. D
