idiocracy is one my favorite movies, even though it is pretty retarted.
everyday i see that movie coming to reality more and more, just look at the news, thier always talking about american idol or other stupid show like that instead of stuff that really matters.
but on a side note, i love the part of the movie where he breaks out of jail one of the funniest parts of the whole movie

I think what is more likely to happen is that the human species will split, upper class perfect humans and poor retarded humans. The wealthy will bread with the wealthy and have access to all the latest and greatest technology creating super babies. The poor will live in filth and won't have access to anything so they will take a turn for the worse and end up like wolf kids. Once robots become more intelligent and efficient there will be no need for slaves or poor people, they will be cast out of the cities and left to rot.

That movie is depressing. It's much more valuable as a futurist documentary than it is as a simple comedy to be laughed at.
That movie is pure truth.
A case can be made for the separation of classes being that a dumb, subservient class of inbreds would exist simultaneously with an educated "ruling" class though the numbers all point to the sub class being leaps and bounds larger than the educated class. By simple force of numbers they will over time drag down/damage/destroy and otherwise eliminate the educated class.
The lowest common denominator always wins out in the end.
