Stupidity is a lack of intelligence, understanding, reason, wit, or sense.
This film is a humorous examination of stupidity in contemporary American culture, covering: the effects of television and mass media on the American intellect; the "dumbing down" of American culture; the popularity of Steve-O and Jackass; role of religion in willful stupidity; the identification of many Americans with George W. Bush; the evolution of such concepts as "idiot" and "moron." This film is an exploration into the nature of stupidity in Western society and its history of our perception of it.
