My review of The DaVinci Code

I set out fully intending to not enjoy The Da Vinci Code -- I rented it just for the secret rooms -- but ended up being captivated and throughly enjoying it.

There are some historical innacuracies, and the central premise doesn't make sense if you stop and think about it:  proving that Jesus had been married and had children wouldn't neutralize Christianity or the Catholic church: the whole point is that he WAS A HUMAN when he died on the cross for us.  And getting DNA from Jesus' wife and comparing it to his current descendant wouldn't prove that he/she was **Jesus'** desendant -- just that she/he was from Jesus' wife (e.g. maybe she re-married after Jesus died).

But, a fun movie.  Worth a rent.
