That guy got hit in the balls. This was awesome.

The only people who think this movie is underrated are college freshmen who are excessively proud of their own ability to kind of pronounce "Nietzsche". This is not even funny on a "guy getting hit in the balls" level.
Bonus star for provoking a minor shitstorm concerning existentialism and nut shots. And Daleks.
I wouldn't buy a dalek shirt, but I would buy a shirt with a picture of you getting hit in the balls with a copy of "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" while you stand in line in the community college cafeteria.
If the movie could only kept up the pace of the first 10 minutes, it would have had staying power. And, for the most part, the sight gags are superb throughout. It just seemed clear that Judge was dipping in the trash heap for most the giggles from there on in, and the film lacked any genuine warmth for any character, only cruelty.

This movie's great
Two stars just for the shitstorm this clip is starting to turn into.
Bonus star for all the related videos. Ah, Break.com, will you ever grow up?
Go away! Batin'!

Idiocracy is a little overrated IMO
There's such a thing as smart dumb. Gracie Allen was a genius because her dumb act was delivery system for amazing flights of creative abstract reasoning. At his best, Homer Simpson does the same thing.
Mike Judge doesn't do smart dumb. Bevis and Butthead say funny things, but they don't play that kind of advanced logic. they say stuff like: "I am Asshiolio, I need Teepee for my bunghole." over and over and over.
It's funny, but without the smart dumb dialogue, I found Idiocracy to be somewaht disappointing.
