** WordOfGod actually changed their mind about that recently on [[https://twitter.com/etanjc/status/702545314733895680 Twitter]], saying that recend events such as the massive accidental poisoning of water and plants for money, high votes for a racist and elitist Trump and general success of sharing half-truths among the population makes them agree with the fans now that [[NightmareFuel their movie ''might'' turn into a documentary]].

* AccidentallyAccurate: How the election cycle is portrayed. At least [[WordOfGod screenplay writer Etan Cohen]] is starting to [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/idiocracy-writer-film-came-true_us_56ce7692e4b03260bf75856e think it has.]]

* HilariousInHindsight: Terry Crews as the President gets everyone's attention by firing a gun. How does he do this later in ''TheExpendables?'' [[{{BFG}} WITH AN EVEN BIGGER GUN.]]

** In the 2016 Presidential Election, a troll registered "Deez Nuts" as an independent candidate and got a reputable firm, Public Policy Polling, to poll it. In North Carolina, between Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Deez Nuts, Deez Nuts had a respectable 9% of the vote--but still behind the proven future President Not Sure, at 12%.

* NightmareFuel: Though the premise is ridiculous, and there are those out there who take it too seriously, there remains the simple fact that human stupidity destroying society is a believable, scary thought!

*** In the case of the guitars, this is what the Army is now teaching in Basic training. Note all of the band is in matching camoflauge, and is supposed to be the modern military. Guitar playing is probably all they do now, so they do that one thing well. To be fair, they play the same riff over and over.....
* NightmareFuel: Comedy though it may be, the dystopia this movie portrays is disturbingly similar to how many people feel every day. Sometimes one can't help but wonder.
** As noted above on [[http://xkcd.com/603/ xkcd]], the "many people who feel that way" have been around for countless generations, each time assuming that they are superior to the next generation.

* SpiritualLicensee: Considered to be the best film adaptation of ''TheMarchingMorons'' ever made.
* TechnologyMarchesOn: Video games. ''Nobody'' in the future plays them. At all.
** The absence of any satirical commentary on gaming is somewhat glaring, and likely speaks to Creator/MikeJudge having [[TwoDecadesBehind grown up]] prior to the [[The8bitEraOfConsoleVideoGames home console boom]].
