Forgot that Mike Judge's "Idiocracy" came out on DVD yesterday - picked that up and Kim and I watched it last night. This movie has a long, sordid history mostly involving the fact that FOX had trouble figuring out how to create a 30/60 second spot that got across the concept of the movie. It was released in something like seven cities last year after nearly two years of sitting in a vault somewhere. So with all that, it's hard to say I didn't have expectations going in, but rather...what those expectations exactly WERE.
Anyway, if you liked "Office Space" AND "Beavis and Butt-head" AND Luke Wilson AND Mya Rudolph, you'll probably find this a safe pick and a pleasant way to while away 87 minutes and $19.99 on the DVD.
Low-budget special effects. ABSOLUTELY HORRIFIC acting. Truck-sized plot holes. A wacked-out twist near the end. No nudity. Ehhh. (I've seen worse ways to spend an evening, but this wasn't anything special in my book.
