“I was with another thirty-something mom in a theater full of teenage kids, and they’re laughing their butts off. And we’re sitting there going, `Am I that old? I don’t get it,’” Meyer said. “I kind of was like, wow, I feel bad. I didn’t get this.
“And then I went home, and the next day, I started quoting it, and I’m snickering to myself all day. `Tina, you fat lard,’” Meyer said, quoting a favorite “Napoleon Dynamite” line. “It was like this weird delayed reaction. And the funny lasts longer than a regular joke. It’s funny forever.”

WILD ABOUT DAN, NOT SO MUCH ABOUT HARRY
Dane DeHaan, one of Daniel Radcliffe’s co-stars in the Sundance premiere “Kill Your Darlings,” shared a deep, dark secret with the “Harry Potter” star at the festival: DeHaan’s just now getting around to catching the flicks about the young wizard.
“Dan, I never told you,” DeHaan confessed in an interview Saturday alongside Radcliffe. “I started watching them when we got finished filming” on “Kill Your Darlings.”
Radcliffe asked how many DeHaan had watched and was disheartened that his co-star so far had just caught the first few, when the “Potter” star was a kid still learning his craft.
“Oh, no, you’ve only done the early ones. Why are you doing them?” said Radcliffe, who stars as a young Allen Ginsberg in “Kill Your Darlings.”
DeHaan promised that he eventually would watch all the “Harry Potter” films but said his real admiration was for the actor playing the Hogwarts hero.
“I’m a Dan fan,” DeHaan said.
