"Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed," a flimsy attempt to discredit Darwinist theory as the cornerstone of modern biology, reps such a missed opportunity. While roving interviewer Ben Stein extracts some choice soundbites from scientists on both sides of the creation-vs.-evolution debate, the film's flippant approach undermines the seriousness of its discourse, trading less in facts than in emotional appeals. A probable punching bag for film critics and evolution proponents alike,"
To add to the film's slapstick tribulations, besides two plagiarism cases, there has been a slip up involving Intelligent design stalwart Maciej Giertych, comedian Ben Stein's Polish second banana in the effort to blame Hitler on Darwin. Ben is presumably just kidding in this Expelled website PR image, but the German Press Agency reports the party run by Giertych's son organized a real live neo-nazi swastika torch parade in 2004. Videoed boogeying at the event, which Poland's Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski condemned as "scandalous", was Giertych's PA. Now that's show business !
Maybe they should skip the release and go directly to the prequel--
