|Expelled should be Expunged|

soliddeal2002: As a HUGE Ben Stein fan, I was saddened by his obvious attempt at Moore cloning. His one sided portrayal of Intellegent Design (ID) and it's supposed juxtaposition with Darwinist Evolution is full of hype, silly music, and dramatic pauses, but entirely lacks in substance, credibility, and factual basis. Too often the movie attempts to link incongruous events. One example is a clip where Planned Parenthood is "linked" with the Nazi Party of the 20's, 30's and 40's. Mr. Stein is right wing I understand. But rather than be another bloated bookend on the other side of the Micheal Moore ridiculousness, he would have been much better served to have displayed an argument FOR his viewpoint and support of ID rather than spending 95% of the movie's time trying (poorly so) to rip apart evolution. The 2 rating was given as this is my first post to this site and I feel there are slightly worse movies to come.
