Eagle Vs. Shark

Rated R 87 minutes 2007

The shock waves from Napoleon Dynamite (2004) have already been absorbed by the movie industry -- director Jared Hess signed with Paramount for the lackluster Nacho Libre and star Jon Heder has been sucked into the multiplex-comedy assembly line -- but this New Zealand import is the first outside project I've seen try to replicate Napoleon's deadpan geek humor. Like Nacho Libre, it proves that lightning never strikes twice in the same place. Loren Horsley, who co-wrote the story with director Taika Waititi, is adorable as a shy fast-food cashier infatuated with a churlish electronics store clerk (Jemaine Clement), but the movie's idea of funny is giving the two lovers identical moles bordering their upper lips.
