No Intelligence Allowed

Friday, April 18, 2008
So Ben Stein's new movie "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" comes out tonight.

I haven't decided if I'll see it or not.

From what I've read online and talking to a few people who have seen screenings of it, it sounds like this is like the Michael Moore for the opposite end of the political spectrum: occasional facts with lots of careful editing to prove a point. I suspect some people will end up worshiping Ben Stein just as some people seem to worship Michael Moore, but fortunately the rest of the population is intelligent enough to see both as pure schlock. At least I hope they're intelligent enough - sometimes I have my doubts.

Perhaps it will be worth a rental. But only after it's moved out of the New Releases section.
