"Idiocracy" is a fantastically silly film that, unfortunately, seems to be getting more and more documentary-like as anti-science fringe theorists enter the mainstream at a worrying rate.
The concept of "Idiocracy" is pretty much what we selected for the best quote. Stupid people have out-bred the intelligent ones, and the human race has become abnormally dumb, electing an incoherent reality TV star as president and opposing even the most non-invasive methods to prevent the spread of a deadly virus.
Wait, that second part doesn't sound right.
In the movie, people 500 years in the future have elected Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camancho (Terry Crews) as president, a machine-gun wielding, pro-wrestler type figure who is trying to fix the world's crumbling economy and food shortages. He can't, of course, so he hires Joe Bauers (Luke Wilson), a U.S. Army corporal from 2005.
The film absolutely flopped at the box office because 20th Century Fox put just about zero dollars behind marketing — including no ads or trailers — did not screen the film for critics and crippled it with a severely limited theatrical release (even the movie's budget is still somewhat of a mystery). But you can't stop a good movie from gaining an audience, as this one did.
