I'm generally not crazy of using recycled plots (sounds too much like Bart raising bird eggs that turn out to be lizards), but Bart's antics with the pigeon were hilarious. Unfortunately, it intersected with the recycling of every "Dump Santa's Little Helper" plot, which I couldn't care for too much. I do, however, love watching Bart do the strangling this time around.

According to IMDB, the estimated budget for See No Evil was $8 mil. For comparison, the budget for Da Vinci Code is about $120 mil. Percentage wise, they've both made around 20% of their budgets back in their opening night.
