Journalists laugh at preview screening of "The Da Vinci Code"


Journalists at a preview screening late on Tuesday at Cannes were unimpressed by The Da Vinci Code, Reuters reports.

Reaction at the opening press screening was mostly negative. Loud laughter broke out at one of the pivotal scenes.

"Nothing really works. It's not suspenseful. It's not romantic. It's certainly not fun," said Stephen Schaefer of the Boston Herald.

"It seems like you're in there forever. And you're conscious of how hard everybody's working to try to make sense of something that basically perhaps is unfilmable."

At last report, Tom Hanks was laughing all the way to the bank with a cool $40 million for his work in the film, and Dan Brown was giggling his way to the bank with at least an extra five million.
