Hilarious, though you may want to purchase elsewhe

by Sad customer on 12/23/2008

This movie is hilarious and Luke Wilson does a good job as playing an average Joe. Do consider purchasing this from buy.com's 3rd party vendors if possible as buy.com is unreliable in getting you what you ordered. I found out first hand receiving some 5 pack of 40's movies and returning that to have them re-ship me 1/3 of my order. And so, I paid the price of 3 movies to get only one. Thanks buy.com. I'll never shop here again. Read More

Editors Note
Note Mike Judge (BEAVIS & BUTTHEAD, OFFICE SPACE) makes his second directorial foray into live-action comedy with IDIOCRACY. When a none-too-bright fighter pilot (Luke Wilson) volunteers for a military experiment that propels him 1000 years into the future, he finds himself in a dumbed-down society in which he is the smartest member.
Reviews
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "There are several moments in Judge and Etan Cohen's script so hysterically funny, and the satire on display is so rudely on-target at times, that IDIOCRACY demands attention." 10/01/2006 p.41
Entertainment Weekly "It's sort of BRAVE NEW WORLD crossed with BRITNEY & KEVIN: CHAOTIC..." -- Grade: B 01/19/2007 p.65
Rolling Stone 3 stars out of 4 -- "It's the stuff cult legends are made of..." 02/08/2007 p.80

ReviewSource Los Angeles Times
Review Judge has a gift for delivering brutal satire in the trappings of low comedy and for making heroes out of ordinary people whose humanity makes them suspect in a world where every inch of space, including mental, is mediated..."Idiocracy" is Judge's pitch-black, bleakly hilarious vision of an American future so bespoiled by rapacious corporations and so dumbed-down by junk culture that the president of the United States is a three-time "Smackdown!" champion and former super porn-star...The plot, naturally, is silly and not exactly bound by logic. But it's Judge's gimlet-eyed knack for nightmarish extrapolation that makes "Idiocracy" a cathartic delight.

Review The thought of the U.S. being run and populated by morons and lugheads 500 years from now doesn't seem that far off given our current circumstances, which is why Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" is absolutely a satire for its time. What Judge is less sure of here than in his previous, perfectly pitched live-action comedy "Office Space," is how to build a complete movie around his key ideas...Judge is terrific on the movie's big strokes, and its needling of how truly bad things can get when dumb folks have power, but his script and direction struggle with the details and individual scenes tend to fall considerably short of their comic potential.
