While he gets points for addressing the debate, the way in which Stein goes about it undermines his efforts to be even-handed and...

Los Angeles Times

As a work of nonfiction filmmaking it is a sham and as agitprop it is too flimsy to strike any serious blows.

Bizarre and hysterical.

Great movie that helps open debate about Evolution vs. Intelligent Design

By moviefn
Without being pretentious, Ben Stein interviews top proponents for Evolutionary theory and top ranking scientists who propose Intelligent Design. He exposes how one idea is suppressed in the media...

Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed

By gottruth?
I got a "sneak peek" to see the movie early - and WOW - it exceeded my expectations! I believe it's best suited for anyone over age 10 -- and adults who are history buffs will love it. ...

An Excellent Point

See it in theaters! The Movie industry needs to see that people will pay for a movie like this.

By pmay1245
