Movie Review of Expelled

Directed by one Nathan Frankowski, "Expelled" is a sloppy, all-over-the-place, poorly made (and not just a little boring) "expose" of the scientific community. It’s not very exciting. But it does show that Stein, who’s carved out a career selling eye drops in commercials and amusing us on sitcoms, is either completely nuts or so avaricious that he’s abandoned all good sense to make a buck.
That's pretty harsh.
What the producers of this film would love, love, love is a controversy. That’s because it’s being marketed by the same people who brought us "The Passion of the Christ." They’re hoping someone will latch onto an anti-Semitism theme here, since there’s a visit to a concentration camp and the raised idea — apparently typical of the intelligent design community — that somehow the theory of evolution is so evil that it caused the Holocaust. Alas, this is such a warped premise that no one’s biting.
Hey...a movie reviewer who gets it! Could this be from a skeptic site? Freethought media? An atheist network? Perhaps you'll be shocked to find that this came from FoxNews. I know I was. This is one of those Twilight Zone moments where reality has been tossed on its head.

Kudos for the great review but FoxNews - you're starting to scare me with this new example of fairness and balancedness.
