Religulous


Religulous

Rated:None
Director:Larry Charles
Cast:Bill Maher
Release Date:2008
Genre:Comedy, Documentary

By Joe MacLeod | Posted 10/9/2008

Director Larry Charles (HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan) teams with smug, smarmy, douche-tool comedian Bill Maher (HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher) and scores a direct hit to the funny bone by way of the superiority complex with this straightforward collection of discussions and interviews ostensibly about "doubt," in re: religion, as in: It's All Bullshit, widening into (funny) cheap-shot 60 Minutes-style video editing and comedic longueurs at the expense of interview subjects who run the gamut of sincerity in putting faith before intellect. Revelation/this just in: We're all doomed.
