The movie attempts to show religions in a ridiculous light, and mostly it succeeds, but the producers didn’t take a straightforward approach.
Bill Maher admits that he and the film’s producers used a fake name for their film to put people whom they interviewed off guard.
“We never, ever, used my name. We never told anybody it was me who was going to do the interviews. We even had a fake title for the film. We called it ‘A Spiritual Journey.’
That’s dishonest and they should be ashamed of themselves.
