Seriously, watch this movie. Then watch Artie Lange's Beer League. Then watch both again with a little bit of the Protector on the side. Don't let a chick you've been obsessing over for years who's practically engaged bring a copy of the Notebook over. If she does remedy your newfound resentment of reality by watching Idiocracy again.

Sorry got a little off-track there :D.

If you haven't heard this movie is like a sci-fi comedy that combines the idea of freezing someone so they can live in the future with the idea that dumb people are breeding circles around smart people (which I don't totally agree with but it makes for a damn funny movie). Basically the future society of man is so dumbed down that it can barely function. "Ow, my balls!" is the number one show on tv. every franchise of today has survived by incorporating porn and prostitution into their game-plan (Starbucks is one of the dirtiest things you can say) and the House of Representatives has become the House of Representin'.

President Cumacho absolutely stole the show.

I look forward to renting this movie. I'm sorry that Fox didn't give Judge the distribution on this that he should have gotten.

I'm sorry but I've got to disagree about The Notebook. Sure it's a chick flick but looking at Rachel McAdams is hardly punishment other than hiding your drool from the watchful hawkeye of your girlfriend.

Welcome aboard Florist!

Oh it wasn't that the Notebook was bad, or that Rachel McAdams wasn't hot, it was that the damn movie was really twisting the knife of how moon-eyed I am over this friend of mine. Whatever, I seem to have made my way out of that jungle again for now.]

Edit: P.S. it really makes me wonder whether Boondock Saints went straight to video because some jackass decided it was unmarketable. How many movies that break the mold have been left behind over the years?

The concept behind this movie is fantastic and even a little bit scarey.

Living in a less well-to-do suburb of London I see proof of society's dumbing down every day. I can barely understand most of the kids that hang on my street and talking like a uneducated halfwit seems to be the done thing for them. On the bus a few weeks back I overheard a pregnant girl loudly and proudly exclaiming (with a dramatic look-at-me sigh) to her friend that this would be her second baby before her 18th birthday.

Idiocy, it seems, is getting more and more popular every year :eek:
