* SelfDestructingSecurity: The cryptex protects its contents with a combination lock. Attempting to force the cryptex open will break the vial of vinegar inside, which would dissolve the papyrus along with its message before it could be read. As a result, only the right password will grant access to the message.

* SelfDestructingSecurity: The cryptex protects its contents with a five letter combination lock. Attempting to force the cryptex open will break the vial of vinegar inside, which would dissolve the papyrus along with its message before it could be read. As a result, only the right password will grant access to the message.message, since it'd be pretty difficult to brute force when where are ~12 million possibilities.

* AdaptationalVillainy: Bishop Aringarosa gets this in TheMovie. In the book, he's just the leader of Opus Dei (where he's presented as nothing more than an unusually conservative Catholic prelate) who gets roped into helping The Teacher find the tomb out of desperation to keep his order from being abolished, and in fact, actually requests that the "bearer bonds" he was ordered to bring to Teabing instead be distributed amongst the families of the murder victims. In TheMovie, he leads a secretive "shadow council" within the Church that actively wants to destroy the tomb to prevent evidence of Jesus' bloodline from reaching the public, and he manipulates police captain Fache (who's an Opus Dei member in the movie) into hunting down Langdon despite his innocence.

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: The grail being of the Merovingian bloodline is portrayed as being kind of a big deal. While they were Kings, aside from Clovis, most of them were little better than barbarian warlords and tended to be more incompetent than the last as time went on. Although, it should be noted that part of this negative image of incompetent kings is due to the propaganda of their successors, the Carolingians, who evicted the last Merovingian king and therefore had in interest in portraying them as lazy incompetents to justify their own power-grab. Historians are still debating the issue but, as with the other so-called "barbarian" people who founded kingdoms on the ruins of the Roman Empire, they are questioning how much "barbarous" this people really were. [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment And we'll leave it that way.]]

** In the film discovering descendants of Jesus is treated as something that would destroy the Catholic church, and [[spoiler: Teabing and the Piory]] wants to bring down the Church for centuries of persecution and deceit. Aside from the fact that this is a very [[HypocriticalFandom selective]] and [[ConfrimationBias biased]] DoubleStandard, as such things are also found among non-Catholics, non-Christians and the non-religious, in Christianity, Christ's divinity and spiritual authority did not come from human genes, so there's not reason to think his spiritual power can be passed on by them In addition, God being infinite, it would not be diluted across His descendants; not to mention being Christian cannot be inherited from one's parents, it requires a personal decision. Proving that Jesus had a wife and descendants would be a remarkable finding that would cause a stir, but marriage is a God-ordained union, a sacrament in the Catholic Church and a central feature of Christianity so it would not do what the film claims it would do.
