As a content agnostic, I have to say that all of this religious backlash over 'The Da Vinci Code' means nothing to me. Still, I can't deny that I was entertained. Somehow, the added material helps, but in more indirect, discreet ways that won't change one's overall outlook on the picture itself. My friend was so excited throughout the movie, he kept wanting to talk to us about it.
