A Solid Adaptation
When I watched this movie for the first time I had recently read the book this is based on. While I enjoyed the book more, I still enjoyed this movie. I think my favorite part was the opening, "So Long and Thanks For All the Fish." (I had that song...

Since the very beginning, when Hitch Hiker's Guide appeared as a series on British radio in the 1970s, this has been a subliterate exercise in entertaining college dropouts. It is widely believed that the angst in the story is derived from Britain's...

I was so excited last summer when this movie finally, finally came out. I went to the very first show and laughed all the way through it. Now, on a smaller screen without all of the anticipation, it's a pretty good little film, but no big deal. Alan...

I saw this movie when it came out and was---somewhat to my surprise---quite entertained. But apparently it is one of those movies lots of people just hate, hate, hate (or simply find incomprehensible), so I watched it again to double-check my...

What a fun movie! This movie will have you grinning from the beginning scene with the dolphins to the very end. I must admit that I have never read the book The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy so this was my first impression of it. What a great...

The cinematic equivalent of Vogon poetry, and fans of the book will know what I mean by that. For the rest, I'll just say this is like Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy without the British humor and will not pique your interest in reading the book....

I am a huge fan of the book, and went for the movie as soon as I could. After doing a bit of research online, I was expecting the worst. And boy, was I satisfied. They'd changed the whole story!! Things happen which just aren't in the book. Just an...

it's OK
well, this movie is certainly not as good as the book, without a doubt. Still, I found it decently funny, and not a bad choice for spending two light hours. as long as you don't expect it to be as hilarious as the book, i think you'll probably enjoy...

Poorly done
I arrived at the theater with high expectations for this movie only to be terribly let down. I guess the movie is never as good as the book, and this movie fails to deliver in every aspect. The acting was horrible, the screenplay poorly written and...
