Film review: ‘Idiocracy’

56d0a-idiocracyWhen the government recruits two average people (Maya Rudolph and Luke Wilson) from modern society for a time travel experiment, something goes awry, and they are transported to the year 2505, where things have changed quite a bit.

Smart people, who put a lot of thought into having children, have been outnumbered by the Jerry Springer guest population, who haven’t put much thought into anything, including basic hygiene and waste management. As a result, the world is now populated by stupid people, and the two “average” people who were sent to the future are the smartest people on Earth.

The science fiction concept from Mike Judge of “Beavis and Butthead” fame is interesting because it seems like there’s a sad possibility it could pan out, but the movie could have benefited from a stronger screenplay and supporting cast. It’s worth a laugh or two.
