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

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

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.

There's about 15 minutes' worth of laughs here; the problem is that the film is 84 minutes long.

Idiocracy ultimately sputters out, managing to go only so far as an engine built on buffoonery without adequate brains can handle.

It's a low-boil affair from the Office Space auteur that wears out its dumb-and-dumbest playbook early on.

The movie is bracing for its bile but ultimately more frustrating than funny.

So puerile and gross that though the movie wants to say something about the dumbing down of America, it winds up not so much commentary as part of the problem.

A couple of good laughs, but mostly a big mess.

The film is completely unique and its sci-fi bent is fully realized in a way that some sci-fi films fail to capture.

Hmm, it's tough to figure out if this is Judge's joking way of figuring out who's the more evolved lowlife of the future.

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

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

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

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

Even if the film contains the single biggest laugh I've had this year at the movies, Idiocracy is a terribly muddled affair.

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

From start to finish this film is sharp, clever, and downright funny.
