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.

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.

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.

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.

Often funny, frequently unfair, mostly simplistic, at times offensively unethical and ultimately limited.

It was much more thought-provoking than I was expecting, but his blatant bias made me feel that he was no less a fundamentalist than the religious people he was criticising.

Over-extended but nonetheless thought provoking and humorous documentary.

Fortunately for filmgoers, the sight of Bill Maher laying the smacketh down on God is, to quote Homer Simpson, truly "sacrilicious".

Maher crucifies the kooks. What he singularly fails to do, though, is engage with anyone sensible. By mocking the loonies he squanders the precious high ground. A real pity.

Shooting fish in a barrel is the order of the day in comedian Bill Maher's faintly tiresome attack on religion.

A refreshingly courageous and long overdue lecture that is equally enlightening, entertaining and provocative.
