"The Da Vinci Code" is incredibly boring.

I don't know about the book, as I am perfectly comfortable being the only person in North America who hasn't read it, but, sweet merciful crap is Ron Howard's adaptation boring as fuck. It takes a long time getting started, and then keeps taking its time by having three damned epilogues. It just doesn't end, and it's full of plot holes and things that just aren't explained.

I have a feeling that the book uses plenty of exclamation points instead of actual tension. That's one of my chief complaints with Asimov's "Foundation" trilogy -- there's never any tension. Everything is exposition with exclamation points. There's no character development, but, then again, when the premise of your story is that a guy is able to predict the behavior of humanity by using math, it sort of eliminates the need for characters and plot points.

I did enjoy being the asshole in the audience, however, laughing at "serious" bits that were clearly funny and adding running commentary to the movie.

It just plain sucked.
