Idiocracy (2006)

I decided to suggest this movie for more than one reason, but I won’t be enumerating them, because yes, they are obvious. This movie left me thinking, since it differs in a weird way. It does start as a comedy, but as it goes by, somewhere along the way, it changes. I really enjoyed it and watched it more than once. This is a adventure, sci-fi comedy.

Officer Collins has been spearheading one of the US Army’s most secretive experiments to date: the Human Hibernation Project. If successful, the project would store its subjects indefinitely until they are needed most. Their first test subject – Joe Bowers – was not chosen for his superiority. Instead, he’s chosen because he’s the most average guy in the armed services. But scandal erupts after the experiment takes place, the base is closed, and the president disavows any knowledge of the project. Unfortunately Joe doesn’t wake up in a year, he wakes up in 500 years! But during that time human evolution has taken a dramatic down turn. After waking up, Joe takes a prison-assigned IQ test and finds that he’s the smartest guy alive…
