The film was shelved good and hard after its initial release, and it's not difficult to see why. It's just a little too close to genuine reality.

Here we are, watching TPTB water the crops with Brawndo EVERY SINGLE DAY and a substantial chunk of the populace actively wondering why the rest of us are freaking out.

The whole film has a drab, somnambulant rhythm. Intentional or not, this is part of its genius.
April 14, 2016
The film is completely unique and its sci-fi bent is fully realized in a way that some sci-fi films fail to capture.

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.
August 18, 2008
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.
November 5, 2007
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...
January 24, 2007
Idiocracy is an unabashedly elitist film that includes fart jokes.

January 18, 2007
An intermittently amusing -- and sometimes lazy -- satire that plays like a so-so episode of Futurama.

January 16, 2007
Idiocracy's utter lack of promotion is now something of a minor legend, and it remains perplexing given the film's obvious charms.
January 12, 2007
A cautionary, sci-fi comedy which envisions a miserable dystopia half a millenia in the future where humanity has degenerated instead of advanced.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

[E]ven more trenchant, more damning, more -- hell, I'll say it -- revolutionary than Office Space.
January 9, 2007
The film stinks.
