My afternoon plans

I wasn't really planning to see The Da Vinci Code (the book didn't wow me), but last week I saw something that sold me.

In a supermarket, they were selling a bunch of DVDs, bundled with a coupon to see the movie. And when I saw that they had a movie I wanted to own among the selections, I had to buy it.

The irony was just too delicious.

I find myself wondering if Tom Hanks's quest takes him to Castle Anthrax, or if Audrey Tautou has huge tracts of land...

I suspect that there would be a few scenes about shrubbery, and the murdered victim might not be quite all dead yet...

Hmmmm.No ... (Below threshold)


No matter how bad the movie could suck, it could never suck as bad as Tom Hanks haircut.

When I first saw that I thought I was looking at a younger Lando from Babylon 5.

The theology in "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" is certainly more sophisticated than that of "The Da Vinci Code"; it also has the advantage of being deliberately funny whereas the "Code's" laughs are unintentional. For instance, compare the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch to Tom Hank's haircut.

They should rename this "The Davinci Load".
