Idiocracy for the Ages

I saw Idiocracy in the theaters and several times since, as it is one of the funniest damn movies I've ever seen. Sadly, most people actually haven't seen it because Fox 'dumped' the movie in a few theaters and let it die.

Why? It didn't test well. At first, I thought that was a bullshit answer for why it got dumped because everyone I know who HAS seen it thinks it's awesome, so how could it had tested poorly? Then I realized that it basically calls 80+ percent of the country idiots and the movie beats that to death with every single example it could think of from fast food to reality TV to fart jokes.

It didn't test well because the audience truly didn't think it was funny. Because that's their reality NOW. Not even 500 years from now.

We are DOOMED as a civilization. Or country anyway.
