But the book sold well
John Miller over at National Review Online notes that reviews are not exactly going well for The DaVinci Code. My two favorite quotes:
New York Times: “I certainly can’t support any calls for boycotting or protesting this busy, trivial, inoffensive film. Which is not to say I’m recommending you go see it.”
Variety: “An oppressively talky film that isn’t exactly dull, but comes as close to it as one could imagine with such provocative material; result is perhaps the best thing the project’s critics could have hoped for.”
As long as Ron Howard is taking best-sellers and making movies out of them overly-crammed with dialogue, any chance he could direct Atlas Shrugged? Talk about a movie with dialogue! And that author hated religion, too!
