Originally released in 2004, the film Napoleon Dynamite was a surprise hit comedy and has since acquired a cult following. Jon Heder stars in the role of the title character.
Selections found on this 'Electric Liger Blue' Vinyl double LP soundtrack includes "I Want Candy" by Bow Wow Wow, music by John Swihart, and of course, the signature tune to which Napoleon dances to in front of his classmates, Jamiroquai's "Canned Heat".
From Preston, Idaho comes Napoleon Dynamite (Jon Heder), a new kind of hero complete with a tight red 'fro,' some sweet moon boots, and skills that can't be topped. Napoleon lives with his Grandma (Sandy Martin) and his 30-year-old, unemployed brother Kip (Aaron Ruell), who spends his days looking for love in internet chat rooms. When Grandma hits the road on her quad runner, Napoleon and Kips' meddling Uncle Rico (Jon Gries) comes to town to stay with them and ruin their lives.
Napoleon is left to his own devices to impress the chicks at school and help his new best friend Pedro (Efren Ramirez) win the election for Student Body President against the stuck-up Summer (Haylie Duff); all the while making sure to feed Grandma's pet llama Tina, and avoiding association with Uncle Rico and the herbal breast enhancers he sells door to door. Napoleon and Pedro put their skills to good use, but it is a surprise talent that leads the two to triumph in the end.
