RELIGULOUS (USA)
SHOWING SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2009
4:00 pm Grand Reo Theatre, Vanderhoof
Rated PG, 101 Minutes
Director: Larry Charles with Bill Maher

From the acclaimed creative and comedic minds of Larry David (Seinfeld, Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Bill Maher (Politically Incorrect, Real Time with Bill Maher), Religulous takes on the last sacred cow in American society, with an aim to bring a hammer of hard skepticism to the gossamer vault of faith. Premiering as a Special Presentation at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival®, the film is a hilarious documentary designed to unsettle organized religion and all it represents.

Criss-crossing the globe, Maher travels from Jerusalem to Vatican City to Salt Lake City, interviewing people about God and their own beliefs. In his typical troublemaking fashion, the man does not hold back, and his irreverent wit and blinding logic produce wild reactions from representatives of nearly every major faith.

When this taboo subject inevitably collides with political views, it becomes increasingly difficult to distinguish between lighthearted comedy and sober sincerity. In the end, nothing is sacred and no one is safe – not Catholics, Protestants, Hasidic Jews, Jews for Jesus, Jesus impersonators, Scientologists, Muslims, Satanists, Creationists or anyone who believes in anything.

The team of Maher and Charles works as beautifully as God and Moses, laying down tough questions and wicked satire on what remains the world’s most controversial topic. United in heresy, these two men continue their practice of making hysterically scathing social critiques disguised as popular entertainment.
