The title's line comes from something comedian Bill Maher says in regards to one of his most controversial subjects and boy he's not kidding. The appropriately titled act has the comedian in top form as he goes after George Bush, terrorists, various politicians and of course religion. I think it's fair to say that you're either going to be a fan of Maher or you're not. There are many comedians out there who can appeal to a wide variety of people but Maher isn't one of them. In one of the best sketches, Maher warns people who are about to walk out that he's going to be taking on religion. Some of his best moments come from this as he gives his reasons on why religion is fake and why he does nothing but make for harm and evil. Again, those who don't share Maher's views are going to be pulling their hair out listening to him and I'm sure many would like to punch him in the face. Even though I don't agree with Maher on everything, there's just no question that he's got a certain style that works wonderfully well and especially when it comes to topics like religion and politics. The film here manages to be quite funny from start to finish, although I'd fall a little short saying this is among the comedians best specials. Still, there's enough going on here to make it worth viewing for fans.
