'da vinci code' misses the mark for critics

[Associated Press] CANNES, France - "The Da Vinci Code" drew lukewarm praise, shrugs of indifference, some jeering laughter and a few derisive jabs Tuesday from arguably the world's toughest movie crowd: critics at the Cannes Film Festival.

. . . .

One especially melodramatic line uttered by Hanks drew prolonged
laughter and some catcalls, and the audience continued to titter for
much of the film's remainder.

. . . .

When the credits rolled, there were a few whistles and hisses, and
there was none of the scattered applause even bad movies sometimes
receive at Cannes.

Read the whole thing here. About what one would expect, I suppose; though I suppose its not really anything to rejoice over, as a movie's being terrible doesn't usually seem to stop people loving it. [Or, I bet, believing it.]
