Maybe I'm crazy, but I just saw this movie and thought it was AWESOME. (by philshibano)
I'm not sure why there are no articles or posters or anything about this film because I just saw it and thought it was AWESOME. I guess it's not for everyone because it's basically Kafka's "The Trial" meets "Beevis and Butt-Head", which is a pretty tough combination to swallow. Still, I thought it was great. If you're going to see it because you want a sequel to Office Space you're probably going to be disappointed. But if you want to see one of the most brutal, acid-tongued, and hilariously honest looks at where our society is headed you're in <more>
for a treat. I just saw the 8pm show opening night in Los Angeles and there were only 12 people in the theater, which means the film will probably be gone in a week. That's really a shame because, in its own way, Idiocracy is one of the best satires to come along in quite a while. But then again it's basically making fun of the people who make up about 99% of the movie-going audience so I guess it's no wonder the studio panicked and tried to dump it.
A wonderful film - one of my favorites! (by sohngg)
This movie is "the" stupid comedy of the year, and quite possibly the best thing from Mike Judge since "Office Space". If you are a Mike Judge fan, or enjoy shows like Futurama, then you are doing yourself a grave disservice by skipping over this little known, limited release. Although the DVD touts very few "bonus features", this film is certainly funny enough to make up for it's perceived "lack of value".This movie is about an army grunt by the name of Joe Bowers played by Luke Wilson who is part of a top secret Army experiment designed to <more>
preserve Army personnel in peace time so that they can be thawed in war time to fight for our country. However, things take an interesting turn as the general in charge of the operation is busted in a prostitution ring and the experiment is all but forgotten. Bowers, and his sidekick Rita played by Maya Rudolph both find themselves awake in the year 2505, where through the course of natural selection, the population of America has grown increasingly stupid. Now Joe and Rita have to find their way to a time machine to get back to the year 2005 with the help of Frito played by Dax Shepard .What I really enjoyed about this movie was Mike Judge's comedic satire on the course of US History over the last 50 years, and how mankind progresses over the subsequent 500 years. This is most evidenced by the advertising in the movie, which has become a staple of the American culture. With shows like South Park in the mainstream media, it's easy to see how conclusions could be drawn that in the future, profanity has become a marketing tool. This is portrayed in the film humorously with subtle things such as "Fudd-Ruckers" changing their name to "Butt-F###ers", and a billboard which displays the advertisement "If you don't smoke Tarryltons... F### You!". I also cannot stop laughing at Carls Jr.'s role in this future, with their slogan "F### you... I'm eating", and their automated kiosks self-advertising their "Extra Big-A## Tacos". with more molecules ! This film contained everything I go to the movies for. Excellent, sharp, witty comedy, as well as an engrossing plot make this DVD one for the ages. Be warned, however. If you are not a fan of Mike Judge, did not care for "Beavis and Butthead", or do not have a sense of humor, then this movie probably isn't a good match for you. Otherwise, I would say this is probably the funniest movie to come out of 2506... I mean 2006.
A Wonderful Film by Mike Judge. (by ReverendNathan)
I absolutely loved Office Space, so when I saw his next work on IMDb I believe in 2003, when it was just named 'Untitled Mike Judge Project' , I flipped my lid. Summer of 2004 came, and it was the same idle page on the Internet. Had Mike given up? Finally, three Summers later the movie is out, and I am stoked to see it. Only one problem; where is it playing? Before Friday, no one had information on this movie... all I knew was a head's up that it was playing at the Arclight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. Now it appears there are a few more theaters that came out of the woodwork and <more>
have the flick.So, it isn't Office Space in terms of the style of comedy. But it isn't much like Bevis in Butthead or King of the Hills in terms of comedy style, either. What I noticed was an overwhelming amount of comedy going on without any commentary; there is definitely an attention to detail within scenery, characters, and even proportions. There was so much to see, that I need to go back to see it again.Sure enough, it won't quite appeal to everyone, so let me put it this way: If you like any of Mike's work, go and see this.
Iddiocracy - Two D's for a double dose of comedy (by motherfather)
This movie was quite a pleasant surprise. I had anticipated it for a long time, and was afraid going in that it couldn't possibly live up to my expectations.It exceeded them.I adored this movie.Hilarious from start to finish stay until after the end credits! , it is absolutely remarkable how a movie about dumb and annoying characters can be so intelligent, witty, and engaging.With it's obvious matte paintings, the movie's future Earth recalls the Planet of the Apes series and other Sci-Fi movies of that era.In fact, this movie is essentially Planet of the Apes, but with people <more>
who are the mental equivalent of apes.It moves at a fairly brisk pace, and Luke Wilson carries the movie quite well, with a character that recalls the one he played in "Bottle Rocket." There's even a not-so-subtle nod to "Bottle Rocket" in an early scene .Maya Rudoulph is also surprisingly good as a former "painter" who was frozen as well.Despite all its strengths, "Idiocracy" has the distinct feel of a movie that was taken away from the director/editor before it could be fine-tuned.I cannot for the life of me understand why a movie this funny would just be dumped into a few theaters with no advanced screenings, no trailers, no marketing whatsoever.It's as if the studio decided they were not going to spend any more on it and just walked away.Or maybe they thought the movie had the makings of a cult classic, and the only way for it to become a true cult classic was to set it up to fail? Whatever the case, it is a shame, because Mike Judge and this film in particular deserve better.I predict this movie will have real legs on DVD, and word of mouth will propel it to the success it deserves.Perhaps the Fox Executives saw themselves in the characters, were confused, and thought it was a documentary?
Loved it, one of the funniest movies in 2006 (by Russman-3)
Shame on Fox for dumping this movie. It was a total riot and I only hope that it will find a second life on DVD and cable.This is a hilarious satire. It takes the "What if" situation to an extreme and it doesn't pull any punches or kicks to the groin . It makes you think... what is to become of this empire once we've gotten totally to lazy and stupid? Everyone gets hit in this one esp. a number of major corporations, and even Fox News takes a punch which is probably why the movie never had a proper release - other than the marketing department over thinking the campaign and <more>
not knowing how to market it "so we'll just give up!" Some may find the movie sophomoric, due to the groin kicking, and farting, but the movie is much more than that. You either get what Mike Judge is saying, or you don't. Most of the negative reviews I've read seem to come from people who just don't get it or are film snobs.It'll probably play for one week in the selected markets so if you miss it, keep an eye out for the DVD, it'll be worth the rental and I will eventually have it in my collection.Good Job Mike Judge, it's a shame that you got screwed, but you made me laugh out loud and I look forward to the next movie you do.
This movie is actually an autobiographical depiction of the Trump presidency so far. Terry Crews does a great job as Trump although Crews' portrayal comes across as much too competent in comparison to the real life Trump. The world has been reduced to impulsive shallow people who only care about money and sex and self promotion. Enter the 2 stars, Maya Rudolf and Wilson who are well below average intelligence as part of a botched scientific experiment. At first they are ridiculed and persecuted by Trump and his followers because they use logic and they believe in science. Compared to <more>
Trump supporters they are actually geniuses. When Wilson tries to convince Trump that crops will grow if they use water from toilets instead of gator aid Trump and his followers mock him because they think water is only used for flushing toilets. Trump decides to do a public execution of Wilson in a modern day version of his reality show called "Your Fired". In this version of the show he uses actual fire to kill his rivals. This movie is a very accurate representation of Trump's rise to power. I don't get why it is not part of the documentary genre but I guess that's because it's hard to believe that someone like Donald Trump could rise from a reality TV star to actually garnering enough votes to become the leader of the free world.Trump nearly destroys the civilized world and only then do his followers realize a very stupid man and woman from the past can use their high school level understanding of science to save the world.This is a hilarious movie that depicts what can happen if you stop thinking for yourself.
This is the beginning of a marketing mystery (by michaelplewa)
There's no other word for it...Fox dumped this out, with NO marketing of any kind. Nobody in the country, other than those who have been looking forward to this film, know anything about it. All the red flags have flown. It has to be a mess, it can't be anywhere near as good as Office Space, right? Wrong. Though Office Space it ain't, this film definitely has satirical bite and wit. It's a misfire on certain levels, but who's to blame is left to mystery.Based on what is currently showing in theatres, I can say IDIOCRACY is a good movie. It's funny, sometimes <more>
laugh-out-loud funny. It's effective, sometimes ingenious. What it isn't as far as I can tell, is finished. We will see something come of this film again, whether it's an extended cut or reshoots. Alone it can be hilarious. It's ballsy at times.Leaving the theatre, looking around at the mall, I was surrounded by advertisements and billboards, commercialism and stupidity. It's not quite as damning a dystopia as 1984, but this movie paints an ugly future for our culture. And there doesn't seem to be much anybody can do about it. Anyway, go see this if you can and try to find out what happened that it was so specifically buried.
Just how stupid does this movie have to be for people to get the point? (by imdbjeff)
Let me start by saying that if you're expecting subtle humour, you're in the wrong theatre. It's low-brow and heavy-hitting. But he's not out to tickle your funny bone. He's got the sledgehammer out and he's drawn a bead on the side of your head. But fear not. As movies go, this is a fairly gentle education. Oh, also, heavy on the swearing, but once again, Mike Judge, not Fred Rogers.Was this movie called 'intelliocracy'? F*** no. The gem, the essence that is Mike Judge is that he has the ability to make people laugh at themselves. Beavis and Butthead was most <more>
popular with teen-aged boys, the very people at which it incessantly poked fun.With that in mind, I don't think the humour in this movie is aimed at the super intelligent. Maybe you are all too smart to get it. But he's not aiming at you. He's aiming at your average Joe. And he's got a message: get your act together and for god's sake, study botany! It is a little disjointed and the narrator gets to be a little irritating after a while, but once again, this movie is meant for people who need a lot of narration ;- It's funny. It has a message that it wants to make sure that we all understand.I question the casting of Luke Wilson in the role of a man with a 100 IQ. Sometimes, he's not able to play down what's he got, like, a 104? to the level of his character. Slightly forced at times.Kudos on Dax Shepard in this one. I remember seeing him in Zathura and thinking, "This guys looks like an idiot." In this movie, he makes a great idiot. Maybe I'm psychic.It took a while to warm up to Maya Rudolph, but I gave her a little leeway. After all, she did have to play straight man to an entire planet. But once she got a little screen time, she made a solid contribution.Terry Crews played the same psychotic, aggressive character he's played many times before, but he makes a first-rate president none the less.Another bonus is that the place was practically empty. Counting my girlfriend and I, there were literally six people in the theatre. We could've had a barbecue pit and a mariachi band. So, no annoying people talking, as appears to be the norm in the 'talking-to-the-tv' age.All in all, a good premise and a competent delivery, given the intended goal. Lots of laughs sprinkled throughout.What made this movie scary was the fact that when we walked out of the theatre, it was sort of like the movie was still playing. We saw a lot of idiocy in the people immediately around us, maybe made more apparent by the dose we got in the theatre....They're all pods, all of them!
I've never seen a movie get a worse release then this. And that's a shame, as this is the funniest film of the year! You would think an ad with the line "From the director of "Office Space"" would be enough to warrant a big release! But there are no ads, no posters, no website , I doubt the stars even knew it came out this weekend. What is 20th Century Fox thinking? Mike Judge's Sci-Fi comedy is set in 2505 but it could come true in about 10 years if things continue as they are. Luke Wilson and Maya Rudolph get frozen in a top secret army experiment and wake <more>
up in a future full of consumer zombie inbred retards. The film reminds me of Woody Allen's "Sleeper" ,"RoboCop", "Planet of the Apes", "Blade Runner" and "Network" and the late great "Futurama". Try to see it before Fox burns all the prints!
