A long time ago, I read a review of Idiocracy in Variety. The review, as I recall, was positive, and the premise sounded funny. So I was surprised when the movie didn’t get wide release. Having just watched it last night, I can say that (a) the movie is absolutely hilarious and (b) it should have gotten a wider release. This will be a cult classic, I imagine. There are so many clever sight gags I almost want to watch it again. If you feel overwhelmed by NASCAR-Metalhead-White Trash culture, this is the antidote.
