It's a shame [Maher] hasn't tackled more intellectually formidable adversaries, and it's a shame that in going for easy laughs he's only preaching to the converted.

It's disappointing given Maher's known comic potential and his regularly televised socio-political insights.

"Why can't we all just get along?" [Maher] asks at one point. Maybe he should have turned that question back on himself.

It's hugely amusing to see an argument so cheerfully loaded, so barefacedly one-sided, and so frankly determined to bully the other side into silence.

As Bill Maher demolishes one soft target after another, his smugness wears thin.

Bill Maher admittedly dresses a one-sided anti-religion diatribe in documentary linens and the hypocrites he finds make great punchlines. But he also addresses the historically proven truth of faith perverted for power and the danger posed to us all.

Rather disconcertingly, the film builds towards a vision of the apocalypse, the destructive fate that religious conflicts have in store for us -- a version of the future any hellfire preacher would be proud of.

Borat/Bruno meets Michael Moore in this funny and thought provoking attack on religion.

So if you are not already on-side with [Maher's] particular leanings, the pickings in Religulous are very slim indeed.

The Passion of the Maher
August 30, 2009
Instead of confronting real problems radiating from the world's major religions Mr. Maher and Mr. Charles opt for Borat redux, making fun of silly little yokels.

Ever the clever quipper, Bill Maher tackles religious dogma and ritual%u2013and Bibles tales%u2013in this documentary of irreverence. The film is witty and pointedly critical%u2013but it's no revelation.

Ultimately, the movie is an impotent howl into the wind.

Wants to be a wakeup call in a room where the people are willing to sleep just a little too deeply.
April 9, 2009
I'm all for a documentary about the mass hysteria of our warring creeds, but stand-up satirist Bill Maher turns out to be the wrong man to make it.
April 9, 2009
Maher has gone for easy targets. He comes up with the odd funny gag, but you get the feeling that he is as dogmatic about his doubt as the believers are about their faith.
April 9, 2009
Often funny, frequently unfair, mostly simplistic, at times offensively unethical and ultimately limited.
