Storyline

A famous museum... a shocking murder... a distinguished symbologist... an alluring cryptologist... secrets written in code. No, it's not that "other" story. When the curator of The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, is murdered, the police desperately need help with the investigation. Langford Fife, Professor of Symbology at Stockbridge Community College and the son of a certain Deputy Sheriff from Mayberry, North Carolina, is called to the scene. He may have received his degree in symbology through a correspondence course but he's "just as competent as those high-falutin' professors from Harvard with their fancy sheepskins from accredited schools." Written by Alfred Thomas Catalfo

Screamingly funny
28 August 2006 | by (Chatham, New Jersey) – See all my reviews

A very funny parody of a very stupid book, "The Norman Rockwell Code" should be seen by everyone. Mike Walsh's impression of Don Knotts has been praised by many, but I was also impressed by Danica Carlson's performance as "Sopha Poisson of the Quebec Secret Service"; this is a young actress to watch, and I'll never again be able to think of a crème brûlée or a meringue without being reminded of her.

And despite the absurdity of the "great secret" of the "Norman Rockwell Code", at least it doesn't contain as many howlers as Dan Brown's ignorant hackwork did.

The location photography, by the way, is excellent, showing New England as it truly is, a rare film achievement.
