I saw The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy last night. As a long-time fan of Douglas Adams’ work I was a bit apprehensive and, to a certain extent, I had reason to be. Many of the jokes had been cut down to little more than the punchline and the plot would probably be almost impossible to follow for anyone who’s not already familiar with it. It did have occasional moments of brilliance (I won’t spoil it by giving away any details). Overall, I’d say that it’s fun to go and see but don’t expect too much.
