Religulous (2008)

Religulous (2008) — This movie is funny and thought-provoking if you don’t take issue with its content (which many are sure to).  While I’m not in total agreement with Mr. Maher’s thesis he makes compelling arguments but really what’s important is that he made me laugh.  When Bill Maher gets into rant-mode he annoys me but he actually manages to hold off for most of the movie and instead focus more on his strength: witty and biting social criticism.  I do take some issue with the end of the movie where Maher preached militant atheism with the same fervor as the very religions he is lambasting.  It reminds me somewhat of the episode of South Park where Cartman travels to the future where atheism has become a religion in itself (3 warring religions, actually).
