This demented look at destructive mass consumption barely approaches feature length. Still, Mike Judge dots each appealingly cheap scene with spastic sight gags and offers fiendishly hilarious, frighteningly plausible examples of cultural decay.

If the world is going to hell in any number of handbaskets -- as Judge so acutely demonstrates that it is -- you might as well hitch a ride in his.

Even if some of the gags about dumb people start becoming tiresome, it's linked to a sensation of discomfort that should make us legitimately worry about the direction we're headed in.

So-so attempt at revisiting Sleeper. Unfortunately Mike Judge is no Woody Allen, nor is Woody Allen himself nowadays.

You have to love a movie that imagines a dystopic future in which the U.S. President is a former wrestler and porn star named Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho.

I look forward to a time when I can safely laugh at Idiocracy, but that time may not come any time soon.

It's a movie now, but in ten years it will be a historical documentary...

Idiocracy is an unabashedly elitist film that includes fart jokes.

An intermittently amusing -- and sometimes lazy -- satire that plays like a so-so episode of Futurama.

Idiocracy's utter lack of promotion is now something of a minor legend, and it remains perplexing given the film's obvious charms.

A cautionary, sci-fi comedy which envisions a miserable dystopia half a millenia in the future where humanity has degenerated instead of advanced.

We may look back at this film in 500 years and realize that Mike Judge was better able to predict the future than Arthur C. Clarke did with 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Forget the fact that you've never heard of this movie. It's one of the funniest movies of 2006.

...seems more like 'Selected Scenes from 'Idiocracy'' than it does an actual film. Still, there are some genuine laughs to be had here, and Judge's vision of a future dominated entirely by morons is memorably bizarre.

[E]ven more trenchant, more damning, more -- hell, I'll say it -- revolutionary than Office Space.

The film stinks.

By refusing to distance itself from its targets, Mike Judge's brand of satire risks being mistaken for what it's satirizing.

A curiosa premissa rende algumas boas piadas, mas, depois de algum tempo, estas acabam se tornando repetitivas e a narrativa perde o ritmo.

Wilson and Rudolph don't seem very convinced that they're in a funny movie, either, so why even bother signing on?
