Idiocracy

Tags: ,

Iodiocracy starring Luke Wilson is a movie that can be summed up with two words: Prophetic and Vulgar.

In the context of the film, both make perfect sense, though. The general idea is that Wilson’s character is accidentally sent through time to the year 2500. There, he finds out that the average human IQ has dropped steadily to the point that Wilson, a totally average person, is now the smartest man on the planet.

The future is filled with idiots, vulgar speech made up of street slang and gibberish English, etc. The President of the United States is a former professional wrestler who got his office because he knew a few 2-syllable words, and he rides around D.C. on a huge, limousine sized Harley Davidson.

Long story short, the movie is funny, somewhat entertaining, and shockingly prophetic. It predicts that the dumbing down of people will continue and shows the eventual result of that.

If you don’t mind a lot of trash talk and a fairly straight-forward, but still humorous plot line, then this movie is good for you. Honestly, though, you won’t miss much if you skip it.
