Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Jon Heder was paid $1,000 to play Napoleon Dynamite. The movie grossed over $40,000,000 in the United States.
  • When Kip is on the computer near the beginning of the film, all of the words he is saying were improvised by Aaron Ruell. If listened to closely, one can hear him singing a little bit right as Grandma comes in.
  • Movie Goof (continuity error): When Kip goes bowling he knocks down all but one of the pins. In the next shot you can see a 7-10 split visible in his lane over his shoulder.
  • The opening title sequence was partially re shot due to some of the executives at Fox Searchlight not liking the look of the actors hands who place the food into the shot. They flew out a "hand model" to re shoot some of the shots with the director.
