"Luckily, the American public (and this includes the 60 million Republican-leaning voters Zucker was aiming for) see through the charade of AN AMERICAN CAROL and are staying home. Or seeing RELIGULOUS."

Your link didn't even say Religulous was a flop!

So, no, by your standards, the bible is evil.

Obtuseness seems to be an atheist trait. Take it up with the website that listed Religulous as one of ten weekend box office dogs.

Religulous was great.

I saw it in the theater. The audience gave it a standing ovation.

I've watched it twice more on Netflix.

I have already proven you a lying cu*t.

Religulous' box office:$13.5m vs.$2.5m budget.
An American Carol's box office:$7m vs.$20m budget.

And your link agrees with me.

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.

You did nothing but prove your willingness to defend a low budget disaster based on profit alone.

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.
Religion = superstition

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!
