Gentlemen Broncos (2009)

Napoleon Dynamite creator generates a quirkier and slightly less sympathetic character within Gentlemen Broncos. Still a super fun film though. He even managed to add some existing star power to the film (Sam Rockwell, Mike White).

Benjamin is a home-schooled senior who helps his nightgown designer mom. Ben also writes sci-fi and enters his latest novel into a writing competition. A guest judge and hero of Ben's steals the script, adapts it slightly and presents it as his own book and is published.

The tension in the film is great. The just awful characters who usurp Benjamin's book are so colourful and deadpan that viewers can not predict outcomes. The intermittent scenes from the book are downright hilarious - Sam Rockwell sewing on his man parts!
