The movie I’ve been writing about for months, Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, opened today.
Los Angeles Times headline today:

From the story…

As host and co-writer of Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed… 63-year-old [actor Ben] Stein… purports to expose a conspiracy against the intelligent design movement, arguing that “Big Science” is stifling academic freedom by keeping any discussion of God out of the classroom.

Expelled, with production and marketing budgets in the single-digit millions, is expected to make no dent at the box-office despite the widest documentary release ever, at more than 1,000 theaters. But it could dwarf forecasts with even a fraction of the faith-based crowd that turned Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ into a cultural phenomenon in 2004….
Walt Ruloff, the movie’s executive producer… said the film could top the $23.9-million opening for Michael Moore’s polemic against President Bush, Fahrenheit 9/11, the best launch ever for a documentary.
That seems unlikely to Projector, a practitioner of the science — or is it pseudo-science? — of box-office forecasting. But it would be welcome, if only because the paper’s shocked editors would surely put the weekend wrap-up story on Page One….

I’m flying to DC this afternoon and going straight from the airport with my daughter to see Expelled. It mentions the connection between Darwinism, eugenics, and Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. That should be enticement enough for any pro-lifer!
