Everyone’s going to show this movie in their science classes, right?
(via Funny or Die)
Texas will have to cut some “State’s Rights” time off the curriculum to make room for this one!
Kinda funny. But what’s REALLY funny are the “teach the controversy” shirts at wearscience.com. (There was a banner ad on your page.)
“And naturally I select you” “Behold the rise of man“
I’m laughing so hard right now.
Funny or die? I vote die. Potential there but wasted.

I didn’t think the bit at the end about making fun of species extinction due to the hand of man was funny. But I liked the rest of it.
I’ve had a dislike for Dana Carvey ever since his execrable Master of Disguise. What a horrible film.
I showed it yesterday to my personal teenagers, who loved it and to 2 science teachers who also loved it. They wouldn’t show it in class, though, because of the lines about “his origin of species” and “the rise of man.”
I think this is atheist humor for atheists. Lots of Christians will misunderstand this as mockery of Darwin.
In any case it is dar–win! now.
Forgot to bring teh funny.
I think darwin is a pretty cool guy. Eh breaks dodo necks and doesn’t afraid of anything.
Yeah, although I get what they were playing at, this just failed to be funny for me. I don’t really find ham-fisted pop culture “parodies” inherently funny. The fact that they used the same Sherlock Holmes-esque narration of fight scenes twice really undercut it for me. I was also put off by the fact that although it was pretending to be a movie trailer, it was far too disorganized to pass as one– at least in my opinion.
And Dana Carvey’s affected character voice was just miserable.
I will admit, though, I snickered at the innuendos. I have no shame.
(Despite the critique, I’m really not a miserable, small-hearted Grinch out to ruin people’s fun! Honestly!)
Meh, good idea, poor execution.
Well.. it’s the closest Dana Carvey’s been to funny in a while now. Not that that’s saying much.
The “rise of man” was good for a cheap laugh though.
