Idiocracy  MAR 07 2007  rating: 4.0 stars

This is a movie that looks like a home run but ends up being a mishit single just over the shortstop into shallow left field. The concept is fantastic -- that of a future world populated by brand-driven idiots -- and the satire in that direction is solid, but the plot is weak and acts like an anchor on the rest of the movie. Not the great followup to Office Space that everyone was expecting for Mike Judge, but still worth a look for the concept and the graphic design.
