It's such a fine line between clever and stupid, and this Spinal Tap-caliber cult item maintains a perfect balance.

Gold places his fond comedy in the '80s with all the cinematic skill of early MTV.

The rhythm's off in this goofy tale of an air-drumming underdog.

It's not the rough edges that bother here; it's the desperate attempt to capture Napoleon Dynamite's success by relying on oddball characters and off-the-wall scenarios.

Your enjoyment of Adventures of Power will be proportional to your tolerance for the one-joke phenomenon of air drumming.

So would-be hip it hurts, Adventures of Power is barely watchable, despite the presence of such pros as Michael McKean and Jane Lynch.

Forgive the film its Napoleon Dynamite overquirk; a loving god is watching all, genuflected to on bedroom-wall posters and seen in the film's final five minutes -- and if you're not a Rush fan, this is not your movie.

The film -- despite some successful goofs and a defiantly dorky Phil Collins tribute -- can't quite win for trying.

With its quirky costume and production design choices, self-indulgent pic gives Wes Anderson haters an easy new target.
