Office Space and Idiocracy both undeservedly flopped? - 21/8/2008 8:27:09 AM

While Office Space is a really funny movie it does sag a bit towards the end and as for Idiocracy, its just not very good and most importantly not very funny.

But this does have a better cast than Idiocracy and I think that was one of the key problems with that film.

There is no doubting that Mike Judge has good ideas but maybe he should be selling the scripts instead of directing movies.

But the premise sounds interesting so maybe this will be the film where he gets it right.

We will see...

As much as I love Mike Judge and in particular Office Space, i gotta say Idiocracy just didn't work for me. I can see where he was going with it but the end result was just flat out unfunny. Hopefully this will be a return to form for him. Colour me also excited.

Office Space is a hidden gem. However, Idiocracy was a rather poor film attempting to extend one joke to one and a half hours and failing more often than not. It quite deservedly flopped. Hopefully Judge has learnt from this and makes it a bit more substantial next time.

Office Space was great, though yeah did dry up on laughs towards the end. Idocracy had some moments that really made me laugh such as anything with the president but overall was weak.

Nothing will touch Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill. Two Classic shows right there.

It had many fantastic scenes, including the Cjief Justice being called Beef Supreme, and one of the best lines I've heard in a movie. Dumb Man "I like sex and I like money", second Dumb Man "I like sex, and I likemoney! We should become best friends" :)
