Idiocracy is a comedy film from 20th Century Fox that was written by Mike Judge and Etan Cohen, and directed by Mike Judge. Corporal Joe Bauers (Luke Wilson) is average in every way. When he is asked to join a prostitute (Maya Rudolph) in a year-long hibernation experiment, he jumps at the chance to be of use. Unfortunately, the project is forgotten while they are slumbering and Joe and Maya accidentally awake 500 years in the future. As Joe begins to meet the people in this world, he realizes that society has lost a great deal of its intelligence. Most of the people he encounters are easily tricked and seem to have very low IQs. Joe is quickly arrested for not paying a hospital bill and is required to take an IQ test. Although he is easily able to outsmart the security officers at the jail to escape, Joe is tracked down by the President (Terry Crews) since his test proved that Joe is the smartest man alive. The President needs Joe's help to save society from food shortages, bad economy, and other problems. Will Joe be able to use his average intelligence to solve America's issues, or will their stupidity reign supreme?moreless
