Via Hemant, Steel City Skeptics is collecting <100 word reviews of Religulous. Here's mine:
The basic mistake of Religulous is overestimating how interesting Bill Maher is when he doesn’t have a stand up routine prepared. The movie’s producers got some great interviewees lined up, from a Puerto Rican guy who had gotten a lot of people to believe that he was the second coming to Dutch politician Geert Wilders, who wants to limit Muslim immigration to the Netherlands. However, instead of cautiously prompting the interviewees, letting the crazy ones hang themselves, and slipping in the occasional outrageous remark, Maher tries to dominate every conversation. And he’s kinda boring.
