Poor Ron Howard. It seems like everyone is protesting The Da Vinci Code these days. The critics hate it. The movie opened up to Cannes and heard the audience hiss instead of applaud. The Catholic Church is up in arms. Everyone is outraged at Tom Hanks haircut. Perhaps the funniest protest I heard about the movie was a Muslim man in India who was outraged at the movie because it depicted Jesus, a prophet in Islam. The BBC reporter who was interviewing him said, “but there is no one actually portraying Jesus in the movie.” And the Indian guy was like, “Oh, I didn’t know that.”
The person that I feel the worst for in all of this is Audrey Tatou. I still think she is fabulous.
