I watched Mike Judge's new movie, Idiocracy, yestereday. It comes out on DVD on the 9th. Really funny. Check it out! It's about Luke Wilson who plays and 'Average Joe' who partakes in an army experiment for human hibarnation. He was only supposed to be in it for a year, but unbeknowest to him thing's went wrong and he wakes up in 2505. And he finds society is so dumbed down via commercialization and what-not that he is now the smartest man alive and must save the world.
Watched this tonight. Pretty funny premise. Although it was populated with basically four or five running jokes, the humor sustained. Luke Wilson did his usual straight-man routine--mildly incredulous, happily bored. I'm not sure how well this would have done in theaters, but I thought it was funny and would recommend it.
