    It's a fictional movie...when did they ever claim it WASN'T a fictional movie?

    LOL

    It doesn't even say that in the book. It just says that it uses some facts to come up with the story.

    But since you asked they didn't say that in the movie. Seeing as I appear to be the only one who has actually seen the damn movie around here I will happily answer all questions about the movie.

    I have to admit I haven't read the book or seen the movie. I also have to admit that I won't read the book or see the movie.

    I did read - when it was first published - Holy Blood, Holy Grail. Given the sort of speculation in that book I wonder why its publication didn't excite the sort of discussion that the Da Vinci Code (book) did. Brown wrote his book as fiction but the authors of HB, HG wanted the reader to believe their claims. Perhaps it was that HB, HG was pretty dry, a collection of assertions rather than a readable story?

    While watching the History Channel - The host said "...part of the controversy stems from the books' claim that everything within is factual."

    At the beginning of the book, Dan Brown says only the following is factual:
