For a “Napoleon Dynamite”-derived exercise in geek chic, “Eagle vs. Shark” does all right for itself. Never mind that writer-director Taika Cohen is one “liger” reference short of outright plagiarism.

“I find it laughable that Bill Clinton will co-chair the National Institute on Civility. We are to be guided on proper political decorum by the man who was disbarred by the state of Arkansas for committing perjury. Will civility apply to both sides of the political spectrum?
