The beloved indie classic "Napoleon Dynamite" was made almost 15 years ago.  Since then much has changed; but the characters, as enduring as they are endearing, stay in our hearts.  
Appealing to the inner-teenager in each of us, the story, and more importantly the dialogue, makes “Napoleon Dynamite” one of the most quoted movies of our time.
