We saw "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy" today. It was good in some regards... great in others and just a tad bit irritating all the way around. The story itself is truly entertaining but really how do you take a huge 5 book story and condense it into a 1.5 hour movie? I guess I need to go back and re-read some of it because I don't remember such a perfect-pat ending.. it seemed so smashed together and damn if they never gave poor Doug (my hubby) a sufficient explanation on the towel. I promised I would look that up as well. (It made sense in the book)
He loved Marvin, and the mice were funny, the improbability button made perfect sense and we decided to get one installed in the van when we get the EASY button installed. Oh but really I just felt rushed more than anything.
AND.. Zaphod felt way too annoying, in the book he popped and was exciting and challenging, in the movie...grr, I wanted to punch him in the neck (tee).
So.. one thumb down and one thumb up (you know, to hitch a ride to the next galaxy man!)
