A great cast, but not nearly as funny as I thought it was going to be. You definately see Mike Judge's, "Beavis and Butthead" mind-set here, as opposed to his "Office Space" one.

Even though I love Luke Wilson, I could not bear the lameness of this juvenile flick.

Very insightful look at where we as a society could wind up... Mike Judge has definitely hit the nail on the head with this satirical look at where we seem to be going as a society.

Directed by Mike Judge in 2006, this stupid comedy delves into the dumbtopia.
If you think you're stupid enough, this flick is for you.
If you'd like to waste your time, this is just for you.
If you'd like to see a stupid world, you for sure must see this film.
If you wanna laugh your head off to death, this is a must-see.
In any road I laughed my head off to become the dumbest person in the whole world.

This movie is very funny, but given the current state of the world, also very scary.

Just ok.

Mike Judge has a gift for delivering brutal satire in the trappings of low comedy.
Though director Judge was given very little money to make this film and was deterred from getting a proper release from 20th Century Fox, there's plenty to be excited about in this comedic look at pure chaos. Looking at the degeneration of the American populace in the next one thousand years, Judge writes with a flourish, an excess of profanities, and a thoughtful look to the future.
There are so many complexities to the levels of understanding of the future and the way in which it is represented, that this film, for all its dullard sensibilities and lewd language, is as thought provoking as any film about dystopias and the erosion of our societal standards.

A 20 minute sketch that just wouldn't end. The jokes were bland, and it really had nothing more to say other than "people are getting dumber". It wasn't clever in any of the ways they showed it, and it was so completely boring. It's a real shame since there are a lot of talented people involved in this project... and Dax Shepard. Maybe that should've been a red flag. He's a nice guy, but I'm not sure he's been in a good film.

What a stupid movie with lame jokes and stupid satire.

Excellent satirical comedy that takes direct aim at contemporary society.

IDIOCRACY has become sort of a cult classic. Personally I found it funny. I think if you liked, say, OFFICE SPACE, you'll enjoy it.

Narrator: As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent. But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. How did this happen? Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence. With no natural predators to thin the herd, it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most, and left the intelligent to become an endangered species.
