FOX's Idiocracy


I'm so pissed off at FOX for dumping Mike Judge's Idiocracy like this... seven cities, but no NYC? WTF? Hopefully the thing will play well and expand to here, though the total lack of any trailers or even posters at this point seems especially... not good.

But they are releasing it, even if it is in such an asshole-ish way, so there is some hope, I guess, that I'll get to see it. Someday.

The review at AICN that I linked to just above is rapturous...

"And now that I've seen it, I know for a fact that FOX is fucking retarded. They made the same mistake with OFFICE SPACE eight years ago, and they didn't learn a thing. Mike Judge deserves better, because he's put together another brilliant cult comedy that will turn audiences hoarse with laughter, while weaving in dangerously clever satire that's spookily on target..."

Sigh. And I'm tired of using the same two images for posts about this film, since that's all there is, so I made the above one. Ain't it adorable?

I find it sort of ironic that a movie about a dumbed down planet is being massacred by a bunch of idiots who don't know how to do their job (market and release movies)
