    I want to see it and X-men 3.

    The only reason I would see it is because Tom Hanks is in it and I love Tom Hanks.

    I'm a DaVinci Code snob - there's no way that book can be worth all the hype. :D

    I can't wait to see it!

    Yes, I realize the book was not good in a literary sense, and I figured a lot of things out, but it was still good in a i-can't-wait-to-see-what-happens-next sense. I'm expecting the movie to be pretty much the same. No cinematic genius, but well done and interesting. I don't think I'll get bored during it, and I'd like to see how they translated it to the screen.


    Also, I'm a total sucker for big blockbusters. :D

    yep. I wouldnt normally see something with Tom Hanks in it - unless it was on video... But I like Audrey Tatou.

    I actually enjoyed the book, and will go to see the movie Friday. I heard that Ian McKellen stole the show as Teabing.

    I won't see it only because I thought the book was poorly written and I couldn't get past Chapter 4.

    BUT i WILL go see it because my girl audrey tautou is in it and i see everything she does, regardless of how i feel about the overall movie.

    Hell, I haven't even bothered trying to read it. Everyone who knows me said, "Don't bother - it'll make you crazy in the bad way..."

    But I do like Tom Hanks. And I'm guessing my husband, the summer blockbuster maniac, will want to see it, so I'll probably go too.

    Also, the movie has been panned rather roundly from what I understand. Not that that has any affect on whether or not I'll see a movie!

    I read online that it didn't go over well in Cannes. Apparently there was laughter at a critical moment and I think it was CNN that says there is no chemistry between Hanks and the woman. Even though I thought the book was poorly written I had been planning on seeing the movie. I'll wait to see what the reviews are after it actually comes out.

    ETA: Unlike PH I do go by reviews quite often. I hate wasting my time at a bad movie. However, I have often disagreed with our local newspaper critic who doesn't seem to like anything.

    I'm with PH. I won't read the book, but now that Tom Hanks is in it, I'll watch it - but only on PPV. I rarely have a chance to go out with hubby - I woudn't waste a date night on a movie I'm not dying to see.

    I had to take a break from the book at one point because it really annoyed me. so I put it down for like a month but I did finish it. I'm not surprised at the reveiws because the climax and denoument of the book left me wanting so I'm not suprised the same thing happend with the movie. I enjoyed Angels and Demons more.

    I'm going to see it with my youth pastor and a group of other kids, but only because we're doing a Bible study on the origins of the Bible, and he thought it'd be interesting for us to watch it.

    I can't say I'm excited, but it is for intellectual purposes, rather than seeing it to join in on the new fad for teenagers.

    Eh, I'd rather wait until it's out on DVD. Husband really wants to see it, though. I might endure it for Ian McKlellan.
    I rather liked the book, even though I could see a bunch of stuff before it happened.

    I'll see it, but it will be a "drinking rental". Based on the reviews so far, I won't have to wait long. :wink:

    The book sucked five different kinds of a s s . There's no way I'd see the movie (especially considering the reaction it got at Cannes).

    I liked the book. Blah blah blah. I liked the conspiracy theories behind the story and all of the art and architecture that came into play. I admit that it was poorly written and I honestly thought while reading that it was written specifically to become an action movie. :roll:

    No way, no how. And I love me some Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, and I love me some conspiracy theories, but can't bring myself to watch this movie.

    I think the book was much ado about nothing. ( I think I'll just duck and run now)

    Haven't decided - the book was somewhat interesting but rather poorly written in my opinion, and nothing I hadn't heard before.

    The more fuss the Church makes about this, the more I want to see it, though, because I am wondering what they are so afraid of us seeing and why they don't think we can judge for ourselves. So I'm leaning to going this weekend as it is a long weekend in Canada.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the Catholic Church up in arms about? Are they not aware that the book is fiction?

    Since I couldn’t get past chapter 4 of this book, I am lost as to why people are making such a big deal about a made-up story.

    Exactly. They are offended at the suggestion that Jesus was married and had children (I guess that brings into question the current doctrine of priestly celibacy) and that there is a conspiracy to cover up the current existence of their descendants.

    I don't know why they think reading or thinking about this would affect someone's faith and religious practises. Do people actually say, "I've been a lifelong, faithful Catholic but I jsut read the DaVinci code so now I'm leaving the Church?" The heavy-handed demands that we boycott the movie are more offensive to me than the book.

    Because if it's in writing, it must be true. :opening big can of worms: Don't you know that theory is based on the Bible? If it's written, then so it must be. Do try to keep up. :wink:

    Or perhaps they think we might believe the theories . . .

    What's COMPLETELY ridiculous is that they're acting like this is the only book ever written like this. This is not the first book, nor the last, I'm sure, to state that Jesus was not crucified, and that he married and had children with Mary Magdelene.

    Apparently the Pope only reads bestsellers.
