So, my first, and most important comment would be to just forget the movie and read the book instead.

I don't think the movie makers did a bad job with it--they definitely tried hard to keep the movie in the right spirit as the book, but I think the movie was sort of doomed to...not succeed (I don't want to say fail b/c that's just too strong).

Basically, as one of my... read more

One of the funniest movies I know.

Of course the book ist better, you can't expect that a movie has all the small jokes in it that a book has.

The best thing would be to watch the movie and read all the books(there are five, so it takes a while ;)).
So happy reading!

Douglas would have loved it

This was a movie I've been looking forward to for a very long time. My family used to listen to it every night when it was on NPR, and I've always adored it. I have two things to say before I go on to the spoilerish stuff. One is that it was fabulous, and if you like the series in any form, you should go see it. The other is that Douglas Adams would have loved it. And that, beyond anything else, i... read more

Movie Reviews (1301-1350) (50 movies items)

" The unique source material by Douglas Adams is the main reason for this better-than-usual science fiction comedy. Martin Freeman feels good in the leading role as the slightly cowardly Arthur Dent who get transported onto a spaceship at the same time Earth explodes. Sam Rockwell play a swashbuckling starship captain with perfect teeth and a love rival for Zooey Deschanel, who looks perfect as that upperclass snobby girl but also has the charm of a beautiful next-door girl. Excellent voice work "

The future kind of sucks. (360 movies items)

"Reason for the future sucking: One Thursday, lunchtime, Arthur Dent discovers that his house is to be immediately demolished in order to make way for a bypass. Oh, if only he went and read the plans, him and others, would be warned about this ahead of time. So long, and thanks for all the fish. Year it takes place: One Thursday, lunchtime."
