With it's mix of dialogue, indie pop, 80s pop hits, and John Swihart's score, the soundtrack to the hit movie Napoleon Dynamite seems like it should be superb.... but it really isn't.

While I enjoy the movie, and the dialogue is quite funny, I've heard enough annoying people quote the movie non-stop that I really don't need to hear "Whatever I feel like!" or "This is pretty much the worst video ever made!" ever again unless I'm actually watching the movie. And the score, while it fits well in the movie, is quite boring to listen to on CD.

While there are a few great 80s pop hits on the album (When In Rome's "The Promise" and Alphaville's "Forever Young" to name a few), there aren't enough to hold my attention. As an extra rip-off, instead of including the Cyndi Lauper version of "Time After Time" from the movie, the soundtrack contains a version by Sparklemotion which is sure to put anyone to sleep.

And as far as the indie pop goes, it's not bad... But it's not that good either.
