Idiocracy

I found out about this movie from friends in San Francisco who were upset that it wasn’t being released in their city. So of course I had to go see it; here was something you could do in LA that you couldn’t do in SF! Idiocracy is pretty funny, especially when you realize how adeptly it dishes up the very potty humor and lowbrow entertainment that it is simultaneously skewering. But what was so offensive that Fox decided not to back the movie’s release? Someonegreenlighted the project, so why not try to recover some money from it after it’s been made? Or could it be the limited release was a way to garner attention and build up demand for a film that would otherwise float under the radar?
