The Vatican Gives Angels And Demons A Positive Review image
The part of this Hollywood Reporter article that surprised me wasn't the fact that the Vatican is OK with Angels & Demons-- I thought we all agreed that Ron Howard isn't really capable of being controversial. No, I was surprised to learn that the Vatican has its own newspaper, and to boot, a film critic, who reviewed Angels & Demons and called it "a gigantic and smart commercial operation." Sounds like a review fit for a poster to me!

The reviewer also compared the movie to a video game, which now makes me wonder about the Pope and the Cardinals sitting around playing Xbox on slow days. But yeah, of course the Vatican has given the pass on Angels & Demons-- they realize it's probably going to be a giant hit and want to be on the right side on this one. Now they should worry that the fact that they have their own newspaper will be more fascinating than Angels & Demons itself.
