Actually I'd rather like to see the movie. It gives apparently the same
kind of thrills as DA VINCI CODE without the latter's ridiculous (and rather
offensive to Christians) take on Christ, and besides, I like Nicholas Cage.
_National Treasure_ doesn't really work. I see what it's trying for, but
the jokes just aren't funny enough, the adventure isn't thrilling enough, and
the characters aren't interesting enough. It's a xerox of a xerox of _Raiders
of the Lost Ark_.
