Geek or Chic?

Is Napoleon Dynamite cool anymore? We can't tell. First our hipster friends were all telling us we had to see the quirky, independent comedy from Idaho (of all places). Then we started seeing high school kids in "Vote for Pedro" T-shirts. Then bobbleheads of the title character were on sale at Target, which, despite its vintage-flavored ad campaign, will never be cool. The film went from word-of-mouth sensation to cultural giant so quickly, we're no longer sure if it's okay to like it. Either way, River Oaks Theatre shows a midnight screening of it today. Go to see a newly minted cult classic or to snicker at a film that is so 2004.
