(at around 1h 2 mins) When Teabing explained the situation of Rome at the time of Emperor Constantine to Sophie, he mentioned that "Three centuries earlier, a young Jew name Jesus had come along, preaching love and a single God." This statement is false, Jesus did not preach a single God. Jesus did his ministry only among the Jews in Israel, who already believe in a single God. It was Jesus' apostles, Peter and Paul, who later came to Rome and preached Jesus' gospel and a single God to the Romans who still worshiped many gods. See more »
Stop now. Tell me where it is.
You and your brethren possess what is not rightfully yours.
I... I don't know what you are talking about.
Is it a secret you will die for?
As you wish.

I've read the book, and the movie's not so bad. Obviously there are many things I'd do different, but in the end it's 2,5 hours of good entertainment, and isn't that what the ratings are all about? Personally I think Tom Hanks wasn't passionate enough for Robert Langdon. That's why it's not a 9 for me.
A lot of people are too harsh on this one. Mostly because they know the book and have very high expectations. I have to see my first book-to-film where the film is better.
Also, you're not going to hell for watching this movie or reading the book. It's based on a novel, which is based on a few loose theories, but in the end all it wants to do is to entertain. And that is exactly what both the book and the movie did for me.
