Have you ever had one of those roundabout conversations with your significant other? They want to watch a movie with you (usually I'm watching 'em myself 'cause I yell at the screen a lot) but they don't know the name of the movie?
"I want to watch this movie - it's supposed to be funny."
"What's the name?"
"I don't know - you probably don't want to watch it anyway."
"Sure I do, what's it called?"
"Nah, I think it has that guy you hate in it, you won't watch it."
"We'll watch it right now, what's it called?"
"I... I don't remember. You won't watch it anyway."
"We'll. Watch. It. NOW. What is it called?"
"You don't like the guy in it. Never mind."
|Oh, THAT guy - yeah, I hate him.|
"The guy you don't like with the nose and blonde hair."
"What's the name of the movie?" (Steam is coming off my head now)
"I think it's... well it's... Idiocramacy?"
"I told you that you won't watch it."
"Is that the name?"
<Half an hour later>
"Look, we will see it RIGHT NOW if you tell me the title."
|OMG people over 3 million results now? STOP IT!|
"Google ow my balls."
"See? You don't want to watch it."
<Makes sure there are no sharp objects nearby> "You want me to Google ow my balls."
"Ooookay. (Googles ow my balls, get 1,610,000 results, no lie and the very first entry is called Idiocracy) Geez Louise what the hell?"
"That movie right there?"
"You don't want to watch it 'cause it has that guy you hate."
<Two hours later>
"We WILL watch this movie, SHUT UP!"
|Oh him? He's okay.|
Owen plays an Army librarian named Joe who is absolutely average in every way. The Army decides to conduct an experiment using him and a prostitute named Rita they borrowed from her pimp named Upgrayedd to be in pods in stasis for a year to see if it was possible (?!?). The whole experiment (after the two are put in pods) is forgotten and trashed when the officer in charge decides he likes the whole prostitution thing a little too much.
|Our future leaders... don't you just want to die?|
|We're not that far off unfortunately - after all, there is this movie...|
|Looks normal to me...|
|Do you want fries with that?|
|Way to pigeonhole yourself, Justin.|
|Whoops, how did THIS get in here?|
Trouble is, he doesn't know what that is. Do you? They, like, totally protect our environment and junk. Oh man, my head is starting to hurt - I feel like Charlie in Flowers For Algernon. What is that? Pick up a book once in a while, would ya?
|I would've guessed that it would have been a Wal Mart...|
Joe decides to use his position to force the farmers to use water on their crops. Since the corporation that owns the sports drink (again wouldn't someone have to be smart enough to... ah to hell with it) loses tons of money they lay off half the population and Joe is blamed, since plants don't just grow overnight. It was (slightly) amusing to see them pumping the water from their toilets though.
|The hubby liked this one...|
|Relax, this is their salute...|
If you watch all the credits (or at least fast forward to the end) you see there is a third pod (please don't ask, I don't have a clue) that bursts open and out comes Upgrayedd the pimp, ready to search for his ho'.
|This is about right...|
Update 6/25/14: I found an article that compares the world today with the movie... and it's not good. Not good at all. I don't want to copy the guy so here's the link to the article:
