Bill Maher's "Religulous" not for the Religious

I watched Bill Maher's documentary,  Religulous.  I must admit I was disappointed. He has an interesting point of view and he did raise some legitimate questions. However, he got confused between comedy and documentary and did not do either well. I suspect that was the plan since he used the same guy that directed the film Borat to direct this film.  Certainly we could have expected a more meaningful discussion. Obviously,  he had trouble getting legitimate religious scholars to speak to him, which led to the "out there" evolution of the project.  Weird is the only word for the Holy Land Theme Park in Orlando and his discussion with the guy who played Jesus.  So if Bill Maher was trying to be taken seriously, I think he failed. The link below is to an LA times bloggers review of the movie.
