My Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
Release Date: September 1, 2006
Plot Outline: An “average American”, is chosen for a top-secret hibernation program. The program is shut down and he is forgotten. He wakes up 500 years in the future to a dumbed down world. He wakes up to be the smartest man in the world.
Luke Wilson was absolutely perfect for this role. I cannot picture anyone else for this part. I LOVED this movie. It is extremely clever and just overall hilarious. There are times when you have to pay close attention to catch all of the clever little jokes. They are continuous throughout the film. Careful, or you will miss some.
Idiocracy was extremely comical and clever. I was very, very impressed by it but, it makes you think about the future of humanity. Be prepared to be afraid. Some of the jokes in the film are based on real life events or shows that are already in existence. It makes you realize that as technological and advanced the human race is, we are becoming a dumbed down society.
One thing I also really liked was the narration. It fades in and out to the point where it blends right into the movie. It just flows and fits right in.
Everyone must see this movie! It is definitely one of my favorites. I was so very impressed by it in every way. Ridiculously clever and hilarious. Go see it ASAP. You will forever be quoting this movie and referencing the funny jokes and situations.
