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

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.

The Passion of the Maher
June 27, 2009
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.
April 3, 2009
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.
April 3, 2009
Smart, hilarious and thoroughly entertaining.

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.
April 3, 2009
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.

Worth seeing to make your own judgment.
