Idiocracy

Idiocracy

Directed: Mike Judge
Starring: Luke Wilson, Maya Rudolph

Mike Judge directs his follow-up to Office Space where Luke Wilson plays a dumb fighter pilot that volunteers for an experiment that sends him 1000 years in the future. He finds out that society has become stupider and he’s the smartest man alive.

I’m so sad. I love Mike Judge. Why does this movie suck so much? It tries to be a satire about how society is dumbing down, but its jokes aren’t satirical. They are jokes that even Beavis and Butthead would be ashamed to laugh at since they are on the level of first graders. I found myself grimacing most of the movie and I didn’t even want to finish watching it, since I just didn’t care. We did finish watching it, but it didn’t get any better. I could talk about the plot, but why bother? Just don’t bother watching it ever.
