Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If the world is going to hell in any number of handbaskets -- as Judge so acutely demonstrates that it is -- you might as well hitch a ride in his."
‑ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Judge has a gift for delivering brutal satire in the trappings of low comedy and for making heroes out of ordinary people whose humanity makes them suspect in a world where every inch of space, including mental, is mediated."
‑ Carina Chocano, Los Angeles Times
"This demented look at destructive mass consumption barely approaches feature length. Still, Mike Judge dots each appealingly cheap scene with spastic sight gags and offers fiendishly hilarious, frighteningly plausible examples of cultural decay."
‑ Nick Rogers,
"You have to love a movie that imagines a dystopic future in which the U.S. President is a former wrestler and porn star named Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"Idiocracy is an unabashedly elitist film that includes fart jokes."
‑ Jette Kernion, Cinematical
"The movie is bracing for its bile but ultimately more frustrating than funny."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"It's a low-boil affair from the Office Space auteur that wears out its dumb-and-dumbest playbook early on."
‑ Robert Abele, L.A. Weekly
"Even if some of the gags about dumb people start becoming tiresome, it's linked to a sensation of discomfort that should make us legitimately worry about the direction we're headed in."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, Window to the Movies
"I look forward to a time when I can safely laugh at Idiocracy, but that time may not come any time soon."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"An intermittently amusing -- and sometimes lazy -- satire that plays like a so-so episode of Futurama."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Working on a sprawling canvas, Judge fills the screen with visual jokes, throwaway gags, and incisive commentary on the ubiquity of advertising."
‑ Nathan Rabin, AV Club
"Often stingingly funny -- and an undeserving resident of the summer's-end movie dumping ground."
‑ Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter
"So-so attempt at revisiting Sleeper. Unfortunately Mike Judge is no Woody Allen, nor is Woody Allen himself nowadays."
‑ Louis Proyect,
"It's a movie now, but in ten years it will be a historical documentary..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Idiocracy's utter lack of promotion is now something of a minor legend, and it remains perplexing given the film's obvious charms."
‑ Rumsey Taylor, Not Coming to a Theater Near You
