Ben Stizzle

An Encyclopedia Britannica author has written a review of "Expelled" on his blog.

With that, I think I will not mention the movie any longer. Richard Dawkins has said it is boring and incredibly stupid, and honestly, I don't think it will do well at the box office. My advice is: If you must see it, wait until it comes out on DVD and rent it. We don't want Ben getting rich off of this.

Julia Sweeney wrote a Hilarious Blog Post about him:

"Ben Stein once did a Groundling show, an improv show, that I was a part of. I found him to be spectacularly ill-informed and narcissistic and weirdly devoted to his schtick and worst of all, hacky. He didn’t listen to his fellow performers and played everything outward to his friends in the audience who laughed (fake, forced) at every single thing he did. When he became known as a “thinker” – when his public persona became the “smart guy” I was astounded. So this type of film does not come as any surprise."
