Borat-director Charles this time follows Bill Maher, the irreverent American chat-show host, as he interviews believers around the world. The anti-religious editing and invective may be skewed, but the outcome is very funny, from chatting to ‘Jesus’ at the Florida Holy Land Experience to sharing unexpected laughs with a couple of Vatican priests who don’t think much of the Old Testament.

Maher is essentially and professionally a comic, and the measure of this movie is not just the thoughts it provokes but the laughs it generates.
