"[T]hose with a taste for irreverent humor and clear-eyed analysis will find it funny, enlightening and disturbing."USA Today "[T]he movie has the same loose, on-the-road structure as BORAT. Much of Mr. Maher's film is extremely funny in a similarly irreverent, offhanded way."New York Times "He's a bombs-away provocateur, and in RELIGULOUS, Maher's blasphemous detonation of all things holy and scriptural, he doesn't really pretend to play fair. He's like Lenny Bruce with an inquiring mind and a video camera." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly 3 stars out of 5 -- "Bill Maher would have been burned at the stake if his hellishly hilarious and surprisingly thoughtful satire on organized religion had played the Inquisition."Rolling Stone "Maher has an appealing enough presence that the movie ceaselessly entertains....It's engaging and often quite fun to sympathize with Maher's agenda."Premiere0.3502215
