Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The film is based off of a short film 'Jared Hess' made in 2002 with Jon Heder. Almost everything from the short film made it into the feature film. For instance, there is a scene where Napoleon and Pedro are at a state fair drinking milk in the feature film. In the short film there is a line of dialog spoken mentioning taste testing milk.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Napoleon is about to throw the "Vote for Summer" button, the girl coming down the stairs disappears, then reappears as Napoleon throws the button.
  • The name "Napoleon Dynamite" is a pseudonym used by Elvis Costello for his 1986 album, "Blood and Chocolate". Executive producer Jeremy Coon has stated that the similarity is a coincidence and that the producers were unaware of Costello's usage of the name until the film was in production.
  • Jon Heder's big dance scene was the last scene scheduled and film ran out while shooting it. The sequence was edited together from less than 10 minutes of his dancing.
