Movie Summary

Director:
Nathan Frankowski
Released:
2008
Rating:
PG
Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed is a 2008 documentary that seeks to prove that scientists and other researchers have valid points concerning where the creation of humankind came from. Ben Stein takes us through this documentary as he travels the world on his quest to prove that educators, who have been ostracized by some critics, are not false when daring to suggest that intelligent design may have had a hand in humankind. Stein believes that anyone who dares to question the idea that adaptation is responsible for the development of Earth's organisms is held to ridicule. He seeks to prove this by speaking to supporters of different theories from around the world, questioning the role of television and media in making assertions and the sudden taboo towards the fact that there could be a higher power that is responsible for everything that happens to us. In the process, Stein gets answers to the question of whether life is the result of accidental chance or a set design.moreless

    Expelled is an unprincipled propaganda piece that insults believers and nonbelievers alike.

    Los Angeles Times

    As a work of nonfiction filmmaking it is a sham and as agitprop it is too flimsy to strike any serious blows.
