Discussing the obvious...
20 October 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The topic of this film is stupidity. What is stupidity? Why do people become or choose stupidity? Why are films so stupid or marketed for the stupid? How do we all behave or think stupidly? These topics and many more are explored in this odd little documentary.

The fact that there are a LOT of stupid people out there is certainly not news. So because of this, you wonder if this film is simply 'preaching to the choir', so to speak. Okay so we know that there are LOTS of stupid people...but what can you do about it? After all, stupid people don't care that they are stupid or have no idea that they are stupid--plus non-stupid people can't legally kill them, so I just don't see a point to the discussion or this film. In addition, some of the film's experts, to me, seem like very well-educated idiots. So what's the point? Well, after seeing the film, I am not really sure there is one.

Mildly diverting but certainly not particularly good or well made or insightful. And a film that's easy to skip or watch if you've got nothing better to do. I did, however, appreciate how the film pointed out that MOST Hollywood types are poorly educated...yet so many seem to think they are brilliant and have important things to say (amen!). I also liked the interview with the founder of the "Bert is Evil" website was interviewed--but it really had little to do with stupidity. Otherwise...meh.
