The Da Vinci Code

My wife brings home a Da Vinci Code DVD from Blockbuster . . .

“You want to see Da Vinci Code?” I ask.

She says, “That’s what you asked me to get, right?”

“Mmmmm, no. Why would I do that?”

“Dad hates The Da Vinci Code,” the boy chimes in. “He hates everything about it. He hates the book, he hates the movie, he hates Da Vinci . . .”

“No, Da Vinci is the one bright spot in the whole sorry situation. Da Vinci himself was a great man. Everyone else involved in these projects is a shameless hack.”

    The book was a fun, quick read. Sometimes it’s okay to set aside intellectual pursuits for the sake of a few hours of entertainment that don’t require a lot of thinking. Did you actually read the book and hate it, or just hate it in principle without reading?

    I read the first page at the bookstore and hated it.

    Tough crowd.

    From the beginning I assumed the author was using his artistic license quite liberally. Having limited knowledge of religious history and DaVinci’s body of work, I quite easily slipped into the story and enjoyed the mystery/puzzle aspect.

    The movie was not fun. I have watched parts of it at various times, but never sat through the whole thing at once. Do not like.
