Featuring: Steve-O Bill Maher Noam Chomsky George W. Bush
Stupidity embarks on an exhaustive search into its meaning, and the implications of a culture that is obsessed and saturated with stupefying culture. Stupidity careens at warp speed through sound bites on topics from television news and reality shows, to internet sites and popular films.
Featuring opinions and comments from some of today's most recognizable figures, cultural critics, authors and academics, including John Cleese, Noam Chomsky, Selma Hayek, and Bill Maher, Stupidity reveals that, despite our culture's extensive access to knowledge and information, humans continue to choose stupidity.
Now you can "get stupid" in the comfort of your home with the new Stupidity DVD.

The film is deliberately provocative. It is left-leaning and it is unashamedly anti-Bush. It was released in 2003, undoubtedly to coincide with and perhaps even influence the presidential re-election.Read more ›
The origins of words like "idiot" and "moron" are explored; footage of drunk people acting stupid is shown; the harm our stupidity is causing to our planet is noted; the dumbing down of the public by business interests is briefly discussed; and that's it. It was somewhat entertaining, so I wouldn't call it a waste of time. But it's not a "must see" or "must own" film either.
A truly poor film.
I'm giving it two stars only because the topic is interesting, but the movie really deserves one star.
