I haven’t written a lot here about Expelled: No Intelligence. It’ll be a crappy movie, and all the PR in the world won’t change that. All the whining about PZ Myers, and criticism of his desire to see the movie he’s featured in won’t make the movie any better. Plus, I’m helping develop NCSE’s response to Expelled, and I don’t want to tip our hand.
That said, I will predict that Mike Huckabee’s endorsement will not save the movie. By all accounts it is boring, and everything I’ve seen from the producers and writers has been laced through with inaccuracies. I doubt the movie is any better.
Plus, Ben Stein is totally played out. As a friend recently said “I thought everyone knew that beneath the MTV-hop thing was a fucking troglodyte.”
