Comedy at its best.

This film is pure propaganda. I actually went to a Scientology "church" here in Orlando and sat through this film. Every single person in the film was an actor, trying to convince us of the "greatness" of this cult. The problem was not the actors themselves but rather the horrible job they did in acting and giving testimonies. If I wanted to here testimonies from people I want to hear actual accounts. Imagine watching 60 Minutes and not getting real interviews but watching actors (and real bad ones) tell the stories, this is exactly what it is like. Another problem is that there is part of the film where about 20-30 people are interviewed all actors, arranging from all walks of life also very politically correct and they all said "I am happier" or some form of that thought. It was pure propaganda and brain washing. A very weak minded or depressed person or a person with very low self esteem would fall into their lies. The icing on the cake was at the end when the man doing the whole film approached the camera and said "If you do not agree with this you are simply stupid." WOW! That was the last straw. For 40 minutes I sat in there and watched it and was totally insulted. My intelligence was insulted the most, there is no way to believe that L Ron Hubbard discovered the governments "grand plot" to bend our minds and control us and that he is the one who discovered this (by the way he was a fiction novel writer before he created this "religion". Anyway... this film should be in the comedy section. If you want a few laughs check it out. But beware if you are depressed, self conscience or have low self esteem watch it with someone who will be able to expose the lies.
