Read it and weep

Well, here we are at the second weekend for the box-office to redeem itself after the DVC topped it last week when it opened world-wide. Dropped a bit... why? Well, the New Yorker's Anthony Lane offers some comments... Read it and weep. Weep, as in cry, as in tears coming to your eyes for laughing so hard!

That's awesome, I particularly like the bit about not being able to get to page 100. Yikers.

Some people have nothing better to do than trash a book. I mean, come ON--not like it's a threat to the church or something, right? ifyour faith is SO WEEEAAKKKK that a stupid little blockbuster movie is going to get you to doubt your religion, then that's youre probablem. Or maybe your religion is pretty flimsy to begin with. I think that could be true.

md, Thanks for posting this. I read it in The New Yorker & for me, at least, it became in instant classic - one of the funniest pieces I've ever read in a magazine - or anywhere, for that matter.
I'm a librarian, and for a while there Da Vinci Code was being requested so relentlessly that we wanted to scream, "Enough!!" Alas, there are so many great books out there that people don't know about.
