7/10
Sci-Fi . Comedy . Science Fiction . Adventure
 

To test its top-secret Human Hibernation Project, the Pentagon picks the most average Americans it can find - an Army private and a prostitute - and sends them to the year 2505 after a series of freak events. But when they arrive, they find a civilization so dumbed-down that they're the smartest people around.

    There's a good chance that Judge's smartly lowbrow Idiocracy will be mistaken for what it's satirizing, but good satire always runs the risk -- of being misunderestimated.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Pete Vonder Haar

    It elicits so many laughs, in fact, that you have to wonder just what Judge did to piss off the suits at Fox so much that they would willingly torpedo one of the only genuinely hilarious movies to come out this year.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Carina Chocano

    The plot, naturally, is silly and not exactly bound by logic. But it's Judge's gimlet-eyed knack for nightmarish extrapolation that makes Idiocracy a cathartic delight.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Idiocracy, is often stingingly funny -- and an undeserving resident of the summer's-end movie dumping ground.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    The delivery in Idiocracy is frequently flat, but it's vision is dead-on.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Robert Koehler

    A satire for its time. What Judge is less sure of here than in his previous, perfectly pitched live-action comedy "Office Space," is how to build a complete movie around his key ideas.

    Variety Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    If you crave a lively and funny trek through the farcical possibilities of unchecked dimwit power, Judge is still your guy. Just go rent "Beavis and Butt-Head Do America" instead.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    Judge races through some of his most provocative ideas in the opening minutes and ignores his story's many logical inconsistencies; the movie is bracing for its bile but ultimately more frustrating than funny.
