This movie was really stupid. But it was also really funny? And low-key a pretty smart script?
Also can be added to the list of movies that couldn’t get made today.
I remember being introduced to this movie when I saw Vice at the Alamo drafthouse back when that first came out. They showed a clip from this in their preshow special. It piqued my interest but I still never got to it til now.
This might be because this just didn’t age that great, but a lot of the jokes just fell flat to me. But where I got enjoyment was the whole general intelligence being on a rapid decline shtick. For example, the opening on natural selection was hilarious.
Also, I think the time travel part of this movie low key inspired Tenet (lol jk).
As much as I wasn’t super into this, shout out Mike Judge for creating Office Space 7 years prior. Fricken hilarious movie.
