The Da Vinci Code: Christ! Relatives!...


We went to see The Da Vinci Code last night. Crap. Better title might have been "Hanks: You've Got Grail" or "McKellen: Knight and Dei".

  1. As I librarian, I've avoided the book- mostly because I'm so sick of hearing about it.

    Sunday The Boyfriend dragged me along to it- he wanted to know what all the screaming was about.

    We're still not sure.

    Most fun was afterward, when we noted that Sophie's dialogue through the whole of the picture could be boiled down to-
    "What/Quoi?"
    "Are you saying that..?"
    "You mean.."
    "You're telling me that..?"

    Distinctly underwhelmed. This is one of those things that occur every few years- where something just DOES NOT have the substance to justify the furor.

  2. You're so right. Badly scripted and poorly directed.

    Underwhelming would almost be a compliment.
