"He blew the lid off sexual habits in the US. That's why the religious right wants to kill off a film about Dr Kinsey"

I find this worrying, yet unsurprising. But it sounds like this should be a good film to see.

hmm, that article had NO bias in it whatsoever. (i'm being really sarcastic)
but then again, the English press is more into the tabloid format than across papers the pond.

Kinsey has gotten nothing but RAVE reviews out here. Everywhere from the NY Times to *gasp* conserrvative talk radio, critics have been amazed by Liam Neeson and Laura Linney's performances. I have yet to see the film, but trust me, it's on my list (right after 'Meet the Fockers' and 'Phantom of the Opera')

Anyway, how about we get some links to other reviews of the film.

Saying that it's got "nothing but rave reviews" seems to be stretching it a bit.

For example, looking at a few conservative/right wing news sources:

http://worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=41757

This is not something that the UK press just invented (and for the record, the Guardian isn't a "tabloid").
