Get ready.

The Da Vinci Code movie is about to hit the movie theaters (May 19). The hype will undoubtedly increase.

What to do? Well, it doesn't hurt to get yourself educated about some of the claims in the book, so you're well-armed with sound historical research. This resource will do nicely for that task.

But rather than going to see the movie, Barb Nicolosi has a different strategy in mind, to reduce the impact that the opening weekend box-office numbers will have. Is it a boycott? Nope. It's an "othercott".

Full text of her article is here, and the pertinent snippet follows:
I'd like to offer another option.

On DVC's opening weekend—May 19-21—you should go to the movies. Just go to another movie. That's your way of casting your vote, the only vote Hollywood recognizes: The power of cold hard cash laid down on a box office window on opening weekend.

Use your vote. Don't throw it away. Vote for a movie other than DVC. If enough people do it, the powers that be will notice.

The major studio movie scheduled for release against DVC is the DreamWorks animated feature Over the Hedge. The trailers look fun, and you can take your kids. And your friends. And their friends. In fact, let's all go see it.

Let's rock the box office in a way no one expects—without protests, without boycotts, without arguments, without rancor. Let's show up at the box office ballot box and cast our votes. And buy some popcorn, too.

As for The Da Vinci Code, don't go see this stupid movie. Don't pay money to have the insidious lies of the enemy introduced into your heart and mind.

Let's "othercott" DVC on May 19 by going to see Over the Hedge instead.
