DVD: Film: IDIOCRACY (comedy, fiction)
Share this:

In 2005, Mike Judge’s comedy Idiocracy depicted a future America ruled by trash culture and a blowhard celebrity president. Sound familiar? The movie begins when the overeducated start having fewer children while the undereducated have more. Enter Joe (Luke Wilson), a military librarian with no family and even less ambition. The Pentagon chooses him for a top-secret hibernation project due to his extreme “average-ness.” They select Rita (SNL‘s Maya Rudolph), a prostitute, for the same reason. When the experiment goes haywire, the two emerge 500 years later–rather than one. Now it’s 2505 and they’re the brightest people in the over-polluted land. Everyone else is, basically, Beavis and Butt-head. Yes, the satire couldn’t be less subtle, but the premise gives Judge license to make as much fun of junk food pop culture as dystopian classics like 1984 and Planet of the Apes. Wilson wisely plays it straight, even if the actors who surround him sometimes succumb to excess. And the effects may be cheesy, but that just adds to the fun. Idiocracy features former footballer Terry Crews (Everybody Hates Chris) as President Camacho and Dax Shepard (Punk’d) as Joe’s futuristic friend Frito.
