I have seen a lot of interesting stuff surrounding Bill Maher’s upcoming documentary Religulous, which takes a look at the role religion plays around the world in a satirical way. A lot of what I have seen looks pretty good, a little tongue in cheek, and quite interesting. However, this new clip makes me wonder why exactly they chose to release this look at the film. I don’t really find it funny. I get the point, but it makes me want to see the movie less rather than more.
Sure, the fact that the store owner says that the “Koran is the only book where women are given equal rights” is a bit silly, but the rest of it seems to be more mocking than anything else.
Give it a peek and see what you think. Religulous hits theaters on October 3.
