"Religulous" doesn't answer too many questions, just affirms doubts

Content-wise, it's best for high-schoolers struggling with the concept of religion, though Maher, in that smug attitude of his, is hilarious but completely one-sided. Any argument the religious people bring up he shoots down with hardly a refutation. That said he does show the ignorance of some of the zealots. If I had to go with labels, I'd consider myself agnostic, so naturally I sided with Maher more than the interviewees, so I may have liked it more than some. Content-wise: CSM is wrong in the language, there's only some really strong stuff scattered here and there, but there's a bizarre pornographic/sacrilegious image thrown in there that makes this purely 17+.

This film is an incredibly powerful look at the impact religion has on our world and how it will ultimately lead to its destruction if people don't stop and come to their senses. It is also very funny, with many of the laughs coming in the form of editing throughout Bill Maher's interviews with various religious figures, which only highlights the stupidity of the interview subjects. Rarely have I seen a documentary film that both scares and enlightens me and consistently cracks me up at the same time. This film should be seen by every teen and adult, no matter what your religious views are. You might learn something.

Finally: An intelligent, reasonable look at religion and why we believe it

If you are religious, then this movie will not only deeply offend you, but it might even make you question your faith, no matter how devout you are. I personally think the film is just supporting the thought of being rational, and thinking in a mature, logical sense instead of with superstition.

It's fine. No biggie.

I'd let a 12 year old watch it, but then again I'm only 16.
It's not particularly intelligent, and probably shouldn't be as provocative as it is in this country. Maher asks obvious questions of religious people and even some religious authorities. He takes some cheap shots, but there are also a few genuinely enlightening moments.
