As a teen, everyone knew a guy like Napoleon Dynamite. Embarrassing families and awkward adolescence — that’s the “real deal” of growing up.


“Nunchuck skills… bowhunting skills… computer hacking skills… Girls only want boyfriends who have great skills!”

The evening promises to be a hilarious celebration of the amazing comedy classic that made Napoleon Dynamite, LaFawnduh and Pedro household names. Jon Heder (Napoleon), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Gries (Uncle Rico) have plenty of behind-the-scenes scoop on the film we all love. As the conversation goes from silly to super funny, one thing’s for sure — audiences gets their money’s worth.

The indie comedy created by BYU students Jared and Jerusha Hess tells the story of an awkward teen living in Idaho. Produced for just $400,000 in 2004, the film has earned more than $44 million. The movie has received three MTV Movie Awards and was named 14th on Bravo's list of “100 Funniest Movies.”

This is a can’t-miss event: a fan-favorite film screening, moderated conversation and audience Q&A. “Napoleon” might even do his famous dance moves.
