Review of Expelled the Movie

I have encountered the first review of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed by someone who has seen the entire film. It is basically a hatchet job by someone who does not understand intelligent design and who writes pretty badly. Given the nearly complete negativity of the review, this stood out:

One of the few funny parts of the film, though, is Stein's interview with British philosopher of science Richard Dawkins. Dawkins' best-selling book The God Delusion is a clarion call for atheism, making him a bete-noire of the religious right. Ben Stein, marshalling the intellectual resources of Ferris Bueller's boring teacher, gets the better of him. Dawkins comes out of it looking pretty silly.

Update: Links to most of my posts relating to Ben Stein and this film can be found here.
