"Da Vinci Code" Already Ruined?

Like everyone else, we are really pumped for the release of "The Da Vinci Code" and frequently check IMDB for information on the movie. So far, we have heard nothing but good things, and the cast looks spectacular (Tom Hanks, Alfred Molina, Ian McKellen, Jean Reno, etc., etc., etc.).

But there's one thing that really seems to be flying under the radar here.

TDC's screenwriter (Akiva Goldsman) is the same guy that wrote "Batman & Robin." How did this guy not get black-balled from Hollywood? Instead, he has gone on to write "A Beautiful Mind" and "Cinderella Man."

(Not to sound like the Sports Guy, but) I feel like Ben Affleck in "Chasing Amy" when he finds out Joey Lauren Adams' nickname is "Fingercuffs".

How can I enjoy TDC knowing the same writer is responsible for these lines:

Mr. Freeze: Ice to see you!

Poison Ivy: Once you have frozen mankind, these babies will overrun the globe, and we shall rule them, for we will be the only two people left in the world.
Mr. Freeze: Adam... and Evil!

Robin: It's the hockey team from hell!

Henchman: Sir! Sir! You've gotta see this!
[Freeze freezes him]
Mr. Freeze: I hate it when they talk during the movie.

Robin: I can't believe we were fighting over a bad guy.
Batman: Bad? Yes. Guy? No.

Was giving Batman a giant schlong in the script?
