In the future, intelligence is extinct

From Mike Judge, one of the creative minds behind Beavis and Butt-Head, King Of The Hill and Office Space, comes an outrageous sci-fi comedy that'll make you think twice about the future of mankind.

Meet Joe Bowers (Luke Wilson). He's not the sharpest tool in the shed. But when a government hibernation experiment goes awry, Bowers awakens in the year 2505 to find a society so dumbed-down by mass commercialism and mindless TV programming that he's become the smartest guy on the planet. Now it's up to an average Joe to get human evolution back on track!

Filled with razor-sharp sarcasm and outrageous sight gags, Idiocracy will make you laugh out loud whether you're an absolute genius or a complete idiot!

 Frightening Truthful

| | See all GixxerDrei's reviews (47)

The scary par is that this film explains, in a very realistic and plausible way, how the entire population of 2505 became absolutely retarded. With no natural predators, the evolution of the human species does not necessarily favor the quickest, smartest, and strongest people for progression of genes... just the people who breed the most. Unfortunately, those people happen to be welfare-sucking, trailer trash idiots who breed like rabbits. This abundant reproduction of the stupid people has caused an adverse effect on societal growth and now Joe and Rita are the two smartest human beings on the face of the planet. If it helps, imagine the entire population as just a hybrid of rednecks, jocks, cholos and hoochies. Seeing this nightmarish dystopia, Joe learns of and attempts to track down a time machine to see if he and Rita can get back to when they came from, and that's basically the whole plot.

Sadly, I don't think it will take the 500 years as depicted, but probably only about 50. I already see the shocking rise of "mild retardation" in the general populace, media and culture. People who like classical music and art are ridiculed instead of respected. The lowest common denominator seems to rule, especially in Hollywood and on TV (eg, "Jackass the Movie" and any reality show where they make you eat something disgusting or humiliate yourself for money)

So this film could be seen as a future premonition of what the human race will end up like:(

 Unfortunate to have to tell people this message

The film did not need to be heavily marketed as it will gradually build a massive cult following which adds to its greatness. The filming is carefully crafted as to not out shine (and therefore add to) the frighteningly important messages this film has to offer as well as to reach the neanderthal mentality of the young generation so they don't miss the messages. As a teacher I have used this on a number of classes as a spectacular tool to reach and change the mentality by logically frightening them away from where the future of the massess seems to be heading - the more young people that watch this, the better (provided it is narrated by an intelligent person).

At last the director of the brilliant Office Space and creator of King Of The Hill makes another feature film. And then Fox pictures do their best to kill it with no publicity. The subject matter of mocking corporate America didn't help. Not in quite the same class as Office Space (thanks to studio enforced alterations) but still destined to build up a cult following. Some scenes like the family tree at the start and the briefing on Upgrayyed are staggeringly funny. One day I hope we'll get a better DVD presenting the film as Judge envisioned

 If you liked Office Space€s humour, watch this

First time I tried watching it, could not get into it, switched off after 20 mins.
Big mistake, coz this movie gets really good after that.
Very Satirical and dumb at the same time is very hard to do.
A bit over the top at times, but always funny.

Love this film,is it a deeply intellectual critique of modern American life , or just a sit down and laugh till your eyes bleed comedy. A true comedy classic and at this price you can't go wrong...If I had two buckets I would give it 10 out of 10 ,as I only have one bucket I will give it one bucket a laundry basket and a bag of toast,you can't give more than that.Top Marks.
