Ben Stein movie takes in $3.2M on opening weekend

It's not exactly in the same box-office league as "Spiderman" or "Pirates of the Caribbean" but Ben Stein's "Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed" took in $3.2 million on its opening weekend.

That's pretty good for a documentary, especially one that received little publicity in the mainstream media.

Remember when far left films like Michael Moore's "Sicko" or Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth" were released? They received front-page coverage in major newspapers and featured spots on television programs. The liberal-dominated media ignored Stein's film, but audiences still found it.

just saw Expelled; the fact that Ben Stein isn't trying to win any popularity contests helps to validate his message... i gather that his goal is to promote free thought, especially more thinking about the worldviews that drive American academia
