Film Critic Quote of the Week

"Instead, we got a Major Motion Picture directed by Ron Howard, perhaps the single director least likely to rescue this material from itself... Enter Howard who... has devoted his adult life to making Frank Capra look like an ironist. The word "earnest" is not itself earnest enough to convey the earnestness of Howard's filmmaking."
-Christopher Orr, in TNR, taking apart the horrible, horrible film adaptation of "The Da Vinci Code."

And yes, he's referring to Ron Howard the director, and not Ron Howard the Phillies first baseman.

Ironically, Ryan Howard's father's name is Ron Howard. I doubt the two would be mistaken for each other in public, tho.
