Went to see The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (The Movie. Don't tell anyone it's from a radio show)TM.

Didn't think much of it. The chance to make a really good movie lost. What were they thinking? Cut out the punch lines of the original jokes, twisted the story up it's own arse, forgot the first rule of comedy... TIMING! Not even a shadow of it's former self. Just because it's a film doesn't mean you have to dump the cerebral humor and replace it with slapstick.

Very disappointing.

Plus side... Magrathea The Planet Building factory floor looked very good and the television Marvin got into one scene.
