    Well it sounded like it might be good, but I just didn't find it convincing at all. It wasn't well researched and it doesn't flow well. I generally love documentaries, but this one was boring.

    Looking over the user reviews, it's not hard to realize that everybody who believes in ID gave it an 8 or above, everybody who doesn't gave it a 3 or below...Every doc. is made with one-sided intentions; every doc. is hated by the ones who disagree--loved by the ones who agree--judging this film purely on its merit, gotta say, it wasn't that bad.

    While roving interviewer Ben Stein extracts some choice soundbites from scientists on both sides of the creation-vs.-evolution debate, the film's flippant approach undermines the seriousness of its discourse, trading less in facts than in emotional appeals.

    Bizarre and hysterical.
  3. Regardless of your personal views, Expelled's heavy-handed bias (a visit to Darwin's home gets the same eerie music as a tour of Dachau) is exasperating.
