WHERE SCIENCE MEETS SCIENCE FICTION

Idiocracy(2006)

Idiocracy poster

To test its top-secret Human Hibernation Project, the Pentagon picks the most average Americans it can find - an Army private and a prostitute - and sends them to the year 2505 after a series of freak events. But when they arrive, they find a civilization so dumbed-down that they're the smartest people around.
