It was awesome in the theaters! How can you not laugh at say that trucker church with the guy singing loudly into a megaphone and has the worst voice possible.

Plus when Bill tells them, but hey you guys are smart so why is blind faith a good thing?

Laughing about non stop.

How about the guy who says, well the bible doesn't say this but it means to say this.

Religulous' box office:$13.5m vs.$2.5m budget.

And your link agrees with me.

I saw it too, and once was enough. I expected something intelligent...food for thought at least, but the film wasn't informative or even educational. Maher purposely avoided serious questions about the origin and destiny of humankind preferring instead to target inarticulare religious extremists to make himself look good.

The movie was one long endless sneer with Maher constantly interrupting the people he interviewed. He even made fun of his late Catholic mother for cripes sake! To her credit, she wasn't impressed with his irreverent blather, probably because she heard it one time too many. If Maher accomplished anything with his low budget whine, it was to showcase the intolerance of his own disbelief.

It seems the Bible needs a lot of corrections. It always makes me laugh how religionists try to escape from what the Bible actually says.

I've missed out on seeing Religulous and Expelled. Didn't the latter expel PZ but allow Dawkins in due to fundie error? And hadn't both been officially invited?

The only fact you established is that you don't know the difference between a good film and bad one. But since profit is the criteria you use to determine the merit of a film, Maher's disaster didn't even make the list of the 10 most profitable low budget movies of all time. LOL!

I refuse to watch either one since both movies were made by idiots. Now Jesus Camp , I think that was the name of it, was truly horrifying.

What other screen name do I use, tardfuck?

You were caught using the inside secrets screen name. Sorry but you messed up.

Speaking of which tell us again about Maher's catholic Mom? Who uh died? And oh how Bill was rude to during the interview?

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahah a!

You never even saw the movie that is painfully obvious.

You are indeed the strongest argument for late term abortions.

Um, "budget disaster" and "profitable" are contradictory. If there is a profit, it is not a "budget disaster."

You just demonstrated that you don't understand how economics works. A million dollars back when Night of the Living Dead was made would have you set for life, today ... you'll make it a year at most. Sheesh.

I haven't seen Religulous, mainly because I thought it would be chock full of ugly people like you.

I made no comment on quality. Taste is subjective, anyway.

bb said Religulous was a flop.
I stated it grossed $13.5m vs $2.5m budget and that it was the highest grossing documentary of 2008.

I didn't claim Religulous was one of the most profitable films ever so I didn't click on your link because it adds nothing.

You're lying for jesus again...
