well, the da Vinci Code made its debut at Cannes and the first reviews seem to put it at the rim of the waste basket.. One critic said the damn film would never have been considered in Hollywood if the book hadn't been written first, the film was that bad.. Another figured the only way it could make its money back was if everyone who bought the book [ 60 million copies FFS! ] paid to see the film. Best thing in the flick, apparently, is Sir Ian McKellen..He said at a press conference he thought the Vatican would be all for the book/film because it ' proved ' that Jesus wasn't Gay... Ron Howard lost cred on Cinderella Man , now it looks like his rep is going to slip again with this.. still.. given the nature of the hype, it will make enough to justify: Da Vince Code II - Jesus' Revenge.. I, for one, will not be going to see it.. I'm waiting for the next ' based-on-a-video-game ' actioneer starring The Rock!
