Nice little backhand slap at the 'dumbing down of America' by Mike Judge as purely average Joe America Luke Wilson accidentally gets sent to the future where our country's collective IQ is, oh, somewhere in the (low) 30's. The first half-hour is truly inspired, but falls apart shortly thereafter when it switches to bad CGI and loses focus - I've read in the past about production troubles (of what kind I don't recall), so it could be a bad case of Studio Interference ... or the basic problem of not being able to present anything more than a clever concept. Terry Crews, one of my favorite character actors, upstages everyone as the motorcycle-riding, machine gun-wielding President of the United States.
