Brent Bozell III knew the game before he saw the movie; from his review:

It is a reality of PC liberalism: There is only one credible side to an issue, and any dissent is not only rejected, it is scorned. Global warming. Gay "rights." Abortion "rights." On these and so many other issues there is enlightenment, and then there is the Idiotic Other Side. PC liberalism's power centers are the news media, the entertainment industry and academia, and all are in the clutches of an unmistakable hypocrisy: Theirs is an ideology that preaches the freedom of thought and expression at every opportunity, yet practices absolute intolerance toward dissension.
Which, I think I've said before, though probably not as well. The black/white, enlightened/evil, sophisticated/stupid mindset of "progressives" makes dialog with them pretty much futile. But their arrogance seems to have made them ripe targets for Stein. Richard Dawkins wasn't prepared to answer questions because in his world he doesn't have to. In his world he picks the questions, and dismisses with scorn any questions that might show a chink in his armor. I have to see this movie; if for no other reason than the fact that Dawkins now complains that he was duped into appearing in it.
