Written and hosted by Bill Mahler, the documentary styled feature is directed by Larry Charles. You may not know Larry Charles. He is the same person who directed 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan' (2006) and also directed 'Bruno' (2009) both starring Sacha Baron Cohen. So you know where 'Religulous' is going. (Am watching Bruno soon too)

Of course Bill Mahler does not have the outrageous comic nature of Sacha but still does a commendable job in taking you through his revelation (pun intended, watch this feature and you will know why) of today's world religions. He meets various religious leaders, priests and takes you on a journey of faith. The feature is entertaining for the dry humor style that Bill maintains. Underlying that humor some serious questions are asked and it finally leads to a climax by which time you have gotten a view of the immense impact (adverse) that religions have has had on humankind.

Is it worth watching ? On a quiet Sunday afternoon, yes.
