The whole film has a drab, somnambulant rhythm. Intentional or not, this is part of its genius.

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.

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

Working on a sprawling canvas, Judge fills the screen with visual jokes, throwaway gags, and incisive commentary on the ubiquity of advertising.

Judge has a gift for delivering brutal satire in the trappings of low comedy and for making heroes out of ordinary people whose humanity makes them suspect in a world where every inch of space, including mental, is mediated.

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

Often stingingly funny -- and an undeserving resident of the summer's-end movie dumping ground.

Mike Judge's Idiocracy is absolutely a satire for its time. What Judge is less sure of here than in his previous, perfectly pitched live-action comedy Office Space, is how to build a complete movie around his key ideas.
