loved it! but then again i haven't read the book.. and had really low expectations. don't get fooled by some of the low budget costumes and special effects, just follow the story, it's entertaining and different!

I can only liken this film to having your favourite song being covered by Jedward or watching your first love being raped by a game show host. Except it's really, really BORING. I mean, Mos Def as Ford for f***'s sake?? Watch the BBC TV series instead.

A fun visual trip that presents an off-the-wall brand of wit and humor. Every scene is packed with superb special effects, visual in-jokes, and surprising cameos. Alan Rickman's depressed robot made the whole movie for me.

They just couldn't capture the ironic humor of the book-the film is disorganized and the performances scatterbrained. But man, I LOVE "So Long and Thanks for all the Fish"! That will stay in your brain for months!

..It's hilarious, dry, entertaining and engaging. In other words, it's everything the movie is not. I fell asleep the first time I tried to watch this movie. Picked up where I left off the next day, and found it hard to get through. I loved the book, one of the few I have literally laughed out loud while reading. I don't think I laughed once during this movie. It took a perfect example of British humor and this is the movie they came up with? Disappointing.

Don't Panic

The adaptation from the book was very well done. There were only minor changes, but the over all was a pretty direct conversion. I like how the narration was not simply a voice over, they gave you some explanation with animatied sequences that allowed the audience to try to keep up with what was happening. This was almost a requirement because the audience is just as lost as the main Character Arthur Dent. This was great because we learn as Arthur learns. Mos Def once again does an incredible job as does Sam Rockwell and John Malkovitch. If you are a fan of the book you will really enjoy the movie, if you have never read the book, pay close attention or just watch it a couple times... the first time you might not exactly get it, but it is one that is interesting enough to let you watch it...
