Have you ever read the sequel, wherein he additionally plays for the Saints, crashes the Exxon Valdez, creates New Coke (accidentally) and almost captures Saddam and saves the world a huge headache?

Watched the movie with my dad, and my dad said that when he saw the end credits and was directed by Ron Howard, he said, "No wonder that was a good film." So, a lot of people have different opinions on movies, that's for sure. Tom Hanks didn't do a bad job, though I didn't like the greasy long hair he had in this film. Even Audrey Tautou did a good job as well.

However, Ian McKellen faired much better than anyone in this film, and looked like he was having fun doing this film a lot more than anyone else. Alfred Molina and Jean Reno did do good, but were'nt given much. Paul Bettany was excellent as well.

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

I didn't think this movie was bad at all. I guess I just feel sorry for Ron in receiving a Worst Director Razzie nom. I guess he deserved it since everyone has said the problem for this film was the directing, and I guess Ron just had some problems with directing.

Well, I've heard much about the sequel, Angels and Demons, and I know Ron Howard is right now working on that. It's right now in pre-production, since they are still working on the casting for that.

Think about this, after being known as an actor in such films like The Music Man and American Graffiti, as well as being known as Opie in The Andy Griffith Show, and then winning the Best Achievements in Directing Oscar for A Beautiful Mind, which was a good movie, but was pretty weak, Ron Howard receives this Worst Director Razzie nom. Like everyone said, Ron just had a lot of trouble directing this movie.

There were some excellent suspense scenes though, but with a movie that's like 2 1/2 hours long it did look pretty boring.

I just saw both movies again,and I still don't see why they're considered bad.

This one was alright.Very slow though.Shouldn't have been marketed as a thriller.

It's much easier to market a thriller than market a bunch of people talking for hours on end.
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

I have seen them both and have got to say that The Da Vinci Code as a conspiracy movie was good I never read the book and don't really intend to so my view of the movie is not blinkered in anyway, Angels & Demons again as a suspense movie it wasn't bad I just went in and enjoyed it for what is and they were.
I think they kinda sound like Depeche Mode

I read the book, which was actually the first "page turner" I've ever read. I never knew the word "page turner" would be possible to describe a book until I read The Da Vinci Code. That's how thrilling it was. When I saw the film, it wasn't like the thrilling page turner I read, but more of an under-key thriller, with everything being subtle. Even the score by Hans Zimmer is barely audible through most of the film. With that complaint, I still enjoyed the film. The performances were great but it could have been more thrilling.
