Hollywood sometimes runs out of good ideas. If this happens, the film makers have a tendency to adopt a wildly popular book and make it into a movie. Sadly, more often than not, the movie adaptations fall way short of the original material. Take for instance The da Vinci Code. The source material was a highly entertaining piece of literature with lots of plot twists galore. The movie adaptation though was bland and highly uninspired. Add to the fact that those who already read the book already knew what would come next and you really had a snorefest of a movie.
