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.

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.

Wants to be a wakeup call in a room where the people are willing to sleep just a little too deeply.

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.

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

Religulous isn't all it could have been: Maher spends too much of his interactions with believers of various stripe scoring easy points off the mad and stupid.

Maher's theories will get up the nose of believers of almost every creed, but his strategy of mocking easy targets will shake few temples worldwide.

It's a rare film that can simultaneously crack you up and send a chill down your spine. Worth seeing - even for believers.

The serious food for thought gets lost amid the one-stop snacking.
