Da Vinci Code Movie Deviates a Bit from the Book

USA TODAY's Claudia Puig reports today that

"At one climactic point, Langdon says, "History shows Jesus was an extraordinary man. Why couldn't Jesus have been divine and still have been a father?"

The filmmakers try to back off from a hard-line stance on the question of Jesus' divinity. Says Langdon, near the end of the film, "What matters is what you believe."

She also reports,

"The movie ... eliminates the romance between Langdon and police cryptologist Sophie Neveu (Audrey Tautou)."
