I've always said that there is an awful lot of truth in this movie. Line two.

I agree it's actually a really good movie and even though it's comedy there's a lot of good depictions on where we're probably headed as a society blah blah blah But anyways!.... My top 2 favorite parts lol...


a) Luke Wilson: So, you an artist or something? ... You do paintings.. or uh?..

Maya: Yeah... paintin's

Luke: ....What do you paint mostly?

Maya Rudolph: "I don't know, people and fruit and sh*t."

The way she says it...Die laughing every time.... She's awesome...

b) And the part where that brain dead looking guy is holding something (like some normal every day item I don't remember what the object was) and he's like analyzing it like it's an alien with that brain dead looking grin on his face.... and then suddenly he turns his head and looks really quick out of nowhere... Oh my God I just die every time at that part!... uncontrollable laughing kind of dying... priceless!

Ah, "Idiocracy". Indeed, this movie does feel very prophetic and, while it's obviously comedy, in a way, it almost feels like a horror movie when you're living, wide awake to the rapidly changing world that's unfolding around you and becoming this very movie that you're watching. I've been saying it for awhile now, Mike Judge is one of, if not THE, premiere social satirists of our time. He's been at it for, what, two decades? The dude is sharp as a tack, and that intelligence and insight just bleeds out of every TV series or movie he does. If there were any justice in this world, "King of the Hill" would still be on and much more appreciated than it was, while "Family Guy" would have never seen the light of day on television, let alone be brought out of cancellation TWICE. Bunch of talentless, no-class hacks behind those copy/paste shows, I swear to God. Anyway, I'll spare the rant and just say, yes, "Idiocracy" #1 movie-status. If you havent seen it, go get it, watch it and love it.

EDIT: By the way, I've been wondering what movie I should be giving the old re-watch lately and have been having a hell of a time deciding. Now I know what I'll be watching right now. It's been about 2-3 years since last I watched. Thanks OP.

Hmm, I'm not sure it's prophetic as I think we're pretty much already there...

It's a great film but there's nothing prophetic about it. Society is going the other way. The general populace is better educated than at any other time in history.

Welcome to Costco, I love you.

Great movie for sure. I know it's not an accurate reflection of our future, but rather an exaggeration. What I found funny in the movie is that even the government has gone "full retard".

In a realistic scenario, the population would be total brain dead zombies while the elites would be intelligent, healthy people.

I love that movie but I don't recall that aspect of the future being depicted.


Then how about the present:

Though there was no ruling class per-say, there was a single corporation called brawndo, that bought out the FDA and made brawndo replace water.

Gaz, Yeah the film is without a doubt prophetic, in regards to the stupidity that just keeps on growing here in America. I still found it very difficult to sit through, but it made it's point.

Sometimes I just wonder why they spend so much time and money on making such crappy films such as Idiocracy. I think I might watch it again though cause you always catch things that you may have missed the first time around. I do have to be in the mood for movies such as this.

The President was classic though. He was like a mixture of that dude from the movie 'The Warriors' and Humongous from 'The Road Warrior'. ~$heopleNation

The masses were never clever. If we read history, we will find many examples, from ancient times.

For example, once upon a time people accepted having no property at all and that everything is owned by the king.

People accept religions, despite the absolute lack of evidence.

Oh I love that film. The decaying infrastructure that nobody cares about, The conglomerate mega corp stores that loom like lone monoliths from the garbage covered landscape. The mega wrestling porn star politicians surrounded by depraved "advisors" whose only concern is their next sexual encounter and how cool they are.

Add in the ID tattoo system, habitual drug abuse, and the sham trial "justice". I think they covered it quite well.

In the future that is...


PS: the only thing I had a problem with is that the premise of Dumb makes dumber is somewhat misleading. I believe that people are being programmed to be more ignorant by the "system" today. This is purposeful, not a result of "dumb" people breeding like rabbits. And that little "downplay" by the powers that be is part of the dumb down process as well.

I also liked the part where his lawyer explained he went to law school in the Costco store.

It's a cool movie but it's nothing too original.
Pretty much exactly the same thing as Futurama, and that show has been out for a longggg time.

One of the funniest movies ever made about humanity in my opinion.
