Idiocracy is Mike Judge’s new live action movie. Well, I say “new”; I gather it was pretty much finished in 2004, and since then he has been battling with 20th Century Fox to get it released. Right now, it’s showing in a handful of cities, probably a contractual obligation release before it gets shuffled off to DVD or buried outright. One of the cities is Austin, so we went to see it last night.
Airport security apparently demanded that a woman drink her own breast milk to prove that she wasn’t planning to use it to take over the plane in some kind of terrorist act of lactation. Maybe they’ve been watching too many Austin Powers movies and thought she was a fembot. “Excuse me, Ms. Tanner, are those things loaded?”
