As usual, New DVD Tuesday is a day late, but here it is anyway.

Idiocracy - It's no Office Space (then again, what is?), but this wry satire of anti-intellectualism and pop culture directed by Mike Judge is well worth watching. Luke Wilson stars as a barely average Joe who wakes up 500 years in the future to discover he's the smartest man alive. Maya Rudolph and Dax Shepard co-star, but the scene stealer award belongs to Terry Crews, who plays a former professional wrestler turned President of the United States.

Since you probably didn't see this movie during its blink-and-you'll-miss-it theatrical run, now's your chance to catch it on DVD. The disc features both the R-rated and unrated versions of Idiocracy, but sadly lacks a director's commentary.
