"I'm a Christian -- I believe that somebody had to create Charles Darwin!"

I always like an opportunity to hear Dennis Miller. He's great for his high intelligence, quick wit, and refusal to buy into politically correct hypocrisy.

I've wondered how this proudly patriotic, middle-aged man can be as successful as he is in Hollywood. It's probably because, along with all the above, he's a good-looking devil and supremely likable.

In this pretty-good concert flick you'll hear Miller skewering all manner of sacred cows, from "messiah-to-pariah" Obama and "Pelosi Galore" to curlicue light bulbs, gay marriage, global warming, and environmental initiatives such as limiting one's toilet paper to one square.

He's especially good at making fun of his California stomping grounds: 1) "If Horace Greeley were alive today he would tell people back east, 'Stay put -- you don't even want to know what's going on out there!' " 2) "We are losing jobs like a child's party clown with Tourette's syndrome." 3) "It's so touchy feely out here I swear to God the (earthquake) survivors will stay alive by eating only the corpses of vegetarians."

Miller isn't above ridiculing things that almost everyone agrees are OK, like 12-step programs, God ("I know that my God finds me incredibly funny and that is why I chose him as my God"), and moderate Islam.

Like every comedian, he sometimes misfires. When it comes to Michael Moore he'll stoop to a fat joke. And there are lots of Bill Clinton sex quips that are sounding a little stale by now.

Miller also goes into a long-winded reminiscence with name-droppings of Frank Sinatra and Don Rickles that is sentimental and self-indulgent. These maunderings felt more like filler.

In all, though, this film is well-worth an hour's viewing.
