Da Vinci decoding

comment

Eight reasons the critically-panned Da Vinci Code movie will do better in Utah than the rest of the country:

nn

8. Theaters are air-conditioned. Kinda hot outside, in case you hadn’t noticed.

nn

7. Utahns like the idea of a man in his 30s settled down and married'even if it is Jesus.

nn

6. They’re more inclined to believe Ron Howard and Tom Hanks than angels of Satan like local film critics Scott Renshaw, Sean Means and Jeff Vice. Especially that Jeff Vice.

nn

5. Any chance to see a religiously themed movie without the “HaleStorm” tag attached, they’ll jump at it.

nn

4. The new 44-ounce Da Vinci Code collector’s cups at Maverik are sweet.

nn

3. Film versions of books are always better'like Lord of the Rings or Spider-Man.

nn

2. Watching people solve puzzles is even more fun than reading about it; they can’t wait for Dan Brown’s next book, The Sudoku Conspiracy.

nn

1. The Da Vinci Code eventually makes more sense at Brewvies after a pitcher or six of beer.
