The Da Vinci Code (2006)

Alan Smithee did not read the book of the same name, yet he could follow the basic story of the secret organization fighting to protect Jesus' offspring (played by the always pointless Audrey Tatou).

The film plays like a longer, slightly less plausible version of National Treasure (2004). The latter is the better film: more compact, more clever, and more entertaining.

At 149 minutes, however, TDVC provides at least thirty extra minutes of reality-free living. That alone makes it a four star film in Alan Smithee's book.

For some reason twisted sister has never been interested in seeing this film. Is it a must see?

Flawed & Disorderly always laughs when people refer to themselves in the third person. It's her weakness.

She's currently watching the original Amityville Horror for the umpteenth time. Oooo. Spooky.

Margo Kidder still had her original teeth and was years away from living on the streets.

How is Alan Smithee? I have missed him being around.

I myself have been mired down in day to day life but plan to get back on my blog more frequently.
