I saw this movie last night and I'm bothered by it. The premise of Idiocracy is that smart people are overly responsible and have few to none children (partly because they put kids off too long due to career pressures) while stupid people have tons of children, thus in 500 years, the dumbing down of society has manifested itself in reality.

I remember being taught the evils of overpopulation. I've looked at the financial aspects of having kids. I've seen people around me who wait until they're 40 to begin trying, only to find they can't have kids now. I've got to say, there is more than a bit of truth in this movie. This movie should be required viewing for all college students.
