it's only a movie folks...

...and not a very good one at that, reportedly.

The movie version of The Da Vinci Code, possibly THE most anticipated book to screen adaptation since The Godfather, could not possibly live up to all the free publicity from those who oppose it.

Everyone from The Pope to Rachel Weiss shuns the film, and all without seeing the film or possibly reading the book.

Is it pulp? Sure.

Is it trash? Maybe.

But I quote the great Rachel of NYC Babylon - "[Da Vinci Code] is a book designed to make stupid people feel smart. It's no Midnight's Children."

It's like Starbucks, without the killer Albino.
