    Just got back from seeing it. After reading all the bad reviews and whatnot, I was expecting a long and boring film. I thoroughly enjoyed it however, and would give it an 8/10. The one thing I don't quite get though (regarding the theories) is...

    Howcome proving that Mary had Jesus's baby would show that Jesus is not the son of God and this miracle worker he was supposed to be?

    Have you read the book m8?

    I have (not seen the film yet) so we can discuss off the forum if it's likely to spoil things for other people.

    I've read it...haven't watched the film yet - but I always suspected that it'll be better as a book than a movie. The characters are just too corny/stereotypical to portray on film without cracking up :D

    Well the book was mediocre, but I'll watch the film because Tom Hanks should be funny in a role I would never have imagined him in. I don't know why, but I had Laurie's 'House' character in mind to portray Langdon when I heard they were adapting the book.

    Having heard nothing but bad things about the movie I didn't expect to be disappointed when I went to see it, usually if folk say a film is great I always end up underwhelmed but this was supposedly pish so I could go in without too much expectation.

    I thought it was average, Hanks isn't quite right for that role but McKellan and Bettany were great.

    It's also not as good as reading the book as you know what's coming all the time, the big draw for the book is you just gotta read the next page to see where it goes, even tho the writing isn't the best. 6/10 for me.

    Because Jesus is the son of God according to the church, and no mere man. He was never involved with women according to them, totally holier than thou, etc. If he had a wean that kinda blows that theory apart.

    Finally managed to watch this last night :shock:

    As expected, works soo much better as a book. There were a couple of bits in it which perhaps made no sense if you hadn't read the book. It's v v difficult to get flashbacks done well on film - unfortunately Howard has made them way too corny. It did, at times, feel like a glorified "Challenge Anneka" :shock: :lmao:

    The book was ok imo....Dan Brown has a good way of keeping the reader on the edge. But, the story - especially the ending, was v poor.

    The best thing of the film was definitely Audrey Tautou....she confirms to me as being the most suave and beautiful actress since Audrey Hepburn :shock:
