Audience Reviews for Peluca


Short film from the folks that made "Napoleon Dynamite," that serves as the basis for the feature film. A lot of the elements that were expanded upon in the feature are here...just on an even lower budget and compacted for a much shorter running time. Worth seeing the genesis of the ideas if you are a "Dynamite" fan.

It doesn't capture the same essence as the full length Napoleon Dynamite film does, but it is still a step in the right direction that spawned a masterpiece.

Peluca sounds like the name of a llama species to me than a film title about a nerdy-looking guy, but I approved of the name and liked this for its black-and-white picture quality. Just to let you know, my friends, Peluca is the short film that inspired the cult hit Napoleon Dynamite. It's about the day in the life of the super extraordinary nerd executive named Seth - and not Napoleon? - who lives in the small town of Preston, Idaho. He wants to rock the world with his illegal government ninja moves and his sweet fanny pack..."Gosh!". Directed by Jared Hess and starring the 'fro-haired Jon Heder in the leading role. I'm surprised there is a Pedro here, but he doesn't have a spoken accent or participate in a school election. Even the Burt Bacharach instrumental soundtrack makes the background scenes very good! Aside from them all, it's a great short. :)
