Consensus: Religulous is funny and offensive in equal measure, and aims less to change hearts and minds than to inspire conversation.

Time Out

Over-extended but nonetheless thought provoking and humorous documentary.

Religulous has an unholy fervor that should start many bonfires.

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.

Maher is essentially and professionally a comic, and the measure of this movie is not just the thoughts it provokes but the laughs it generates.

I think this is an important movie, challenging, many beliefs that many of us seem unwilling to talk about. Mainly, though, you'll laugh...a lot.

Maher sets out not after answers but cheap laughs that preach, so to speak, to the converted.
