It is hard to believe that “Napoleon Dynamite” is already celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year. I was never a huge fan of the film. I liked it but I really don’t love it. This latest Blu-ray release comes in a fuzzy, collectible, liger-fur Blu-ray + DVD Comb Pack. Personally, I feel like this is a major double-dip with nothing new to offer because the combo pack. Either way like it or not, this film has quite the cult following For all the fans that are obsessed with this film.

Official Premise: Napoleon Dynamite is a new kind of hero, complete with a tight ‘fro, sweet moon boots, and skills that can’t be topped. Napoleon spends his days drawing mythical beasts, duking it out with his brother Kip and avoiding his scheming Uncle Rico. When two new friends enter Napoleon’s life — shy Deb and mustachioed Pedro, the trio launches a campaign to elect Pedro for class president and make the student body’s wildest dreams come true. But if Pedro is to beat stuck-up Summer, Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon

The special features on this release are lacking and missing quite a bit of extras from the previous Blu-ray release.. There is a commentary track from Director/Co-Writer Jared Hess, actor Jon Heder and Producer Jeremy Coon. There is also five deleted scenes with commentary by the same three guys. There is a featurette called “The Making of the Wedding of the Century”. Lastly there is a Still Gallery and Easter Egg – Fan Club Piece included. If you have the 2009 Blu-ray, I would stick with that one for sure!
