"Napoleon Dynamite"

Although I enjoyed the film, it never occurred to me that it might convey a Christian[!] message [or any message at all]:

Napoleon Dynamite is a humorous but touching critique of the inevitable loneliness and meaninglessness of individualism when it is stripped of the context of genuine community. Its message is consistent with a Christian moral anthropology, that human beings are not intended to "fly solo," but made to live in a community marked by the vulnerability and sacrifice of love. [the review]
