I saw Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy at the weekend. It was a rather meh experience for several reasons - some of the audience had body odour issues for one. And for two - the film was nowhere as near as good as the book, play or tv series. It had been all Hollywoodified - in place of Adam's somewhat undergraduate philosphy there were special effects. In place of his dry sense of humour were prat-falls - people getting hilariously slapped in the face. I know Adams was supposed to have worked on the script himself, but really! This was another film aimed at thick 13 year old American boys with attention deficit disorder. Oh well. If you haven't read the book, I recommend it.
