The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

Funnier than anything you will see in a long time.

Characters you find yourself caring about (except for the Volgons of course).

Dazzling special effects - truly quite amazing, especially near the end, the kind of stuff that reminds you of why you actully leave the house sometimes and see a film in the theatre.

A really funny opening sequence in which the dolphin performances are breathtaking.

No special knowledge of science required.

"In short you'll laugh your head off, grow another one, and laugh that one off too."

Go see this movie, you won't regret it.

If you think the film is funny, you should read the books or listen to the radio shows!

Oh, I have and I meant to mention that in the post, but near the end of typing it I had suddenly lost track of my towel (see the movie or read the book, etc.) and had to stop immediately to track it down (just in case....).

What took me by surprise in fact was how funny the movie was in spite of detailed knowlege of the material - this includes quite a number of nights years ago with dear friends sitting around in one of the worlds tiniest Hyde Park apartments*, filled with a giant (100 - 200 gallons) aquarium, actually reading the parts from various copies of the book or script that we owned.

Our friend who played Marvin the depressed robot was so screamingly funny at it that we often were compelled to stop for long periods of time just to get the health endangering laughs out of our system (thanks Ed).

So I went into the movie having read all the books, seeing the TV series, having heard and I think we were reading the scripts of the radio plays now that I think of it, and generally having low expectations for the film - so I was really excited by what I got.

Generally Trillium has gotten short shrift in all previous productions and I think given the realities of the script (so as not to act as a spoiler) the interpretation in the film makes a lot more sense.

I also think certain character choices, not possible before, either by special effects or by historicity, not to mention special effects some of which are truly breathtaking, really add to the impact of the film.

Of course the opening musical number, DON'T BE LATE(!), really sets the tone of the piece and tells you that you are in for something really odd, funny and special.

The best part is that given the sucess of this one, we ae likely to see sequals that I hope will be equally high quality.

Thanks for visiting my blog and filling in the gaps. It was a long day!
