6. NAPOLEON DYNAMITE (2004)

Audiences ate up this quirky story of a high school outsider like a big bowl of llama food. Director Jared Hess went on to make NACHO LIBRE and GENTLEMEN BRONCOS and Napoleon himself, Jon Heder, became a comedic leading man. Now they’ve reunited for Napoleon Dynamite, the cartoon series. Overall, a pretty sweet deal.
