A cynical attempt to sucker Christian conservatives into thinking they're losing the 'intelligent design' debate because of academic 'prejudice.'

This film is cheerfully ignorant, manipulative, slanted, cherry-picks quotations, draws unwarranted conclusions, makes outrageous juxtapositions, segues between quotes that are not about the same thing, tells bald-faced lies, etc.
April 18, 2008
The movie itself is an example of design by faith and emotion rather than intelligence, defined as rationality grounded in proof.

Expelled may prove to be as controversial as the producers hope, but the reactions will be more entertaining and elucidating than the film itself.

Might there be a way to get to God through science? It's a fascinating notion and I wish the slickly produced Expelled investigated it more thoroughly.

Stein's credibility is blown on this poorly constructed diatribe, and you'd be smart to save your bucks.

For a film about American freedom of expression and the necessity for open dialogue, it's hard to imagine Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed being more one-sided, narrow-minded, and intellectually dishonest.

I don't say the film is crap because I disagree with it. I say it's crap because it disagrees with itself. It teems with contradictions, false dichotomies, and specious reasoning.

The man made famous by Ferris Bueller, however, quickly wades into waters far too deep for him.
April 18, 2008
Stein's schlumpy presence is disarming, though his know-it-all nature is at odds with his free-speech posing.

Regardless of your personal views, Expelled's heavy-handed bias (a visit to Darwin's home gets the same eerie music as a tour of Dachau) is exasperating.

The movie is unpersuasive, but it's amusing...

Don't expect any serious debate here about God and evolution. This documentary is like watching a paranoiac making fun of a hysteric.

A the point where the film starts exploiting the Holocaust to score cheap shots.. there's no laughter left, only pure, unbridled disgust.

Stein spends the first half of the movie setting himself a trap, and the second half squirming in it.

This is propaganda, a political rant disguised as a serious commentary on stifled freedom of inquiry.

To grant Expelled any credibility beyond the opening minutes requires nothing short of a leap of faith.

Expelled is a classic bait-and-switch, presenting itself as a plea for freedom in the scientific marketplace of ideas, while actually delivering a grossly unfair, contradictory, and ultimately repugnant attack on Darwinists.
