    Well, we can always remake it again in 30 years if it doesn't live up to the books . . . movies are rarely as good as their books (especially if you read the book first)

    Indeed. There's way too much brilliant comedy in Hitchhiker's to fit into a movie. What I took from the book was that the story was random and un-important, it was really more of a character study than an adventure.

    Did anyone ever play the old Hitchhiker's RPG back in the 80's?

    The books Sean? This won't live up to the TV series.

    In my opinion, a good book to movie interpretation was done with Lord of the Rings (they're also working on Chronicles of Narnia). They changed a bunch of stuff from the book to the movie for LOTR, but they chose the right things to stay in the movie. I was glad they took out some of Tolkein's terrible poetry.

    Hate to burst your bubble, Brian, I was really looking forward to this too, but this review has lessened my expectations considerably:

    If all this is true and they've butchered the good lines and replaced the wit with physical humor, this is, as the reviewer stated, an abomination.

    Well I saw it yesterday. Not that this is saying much, but I thought it was the best Douglas Adam put to film.

    Alan Rickman pulled off Marvin with exceptional success. They obviously added some parts that weren't in the book, and normally that would bother me. With HH though, the whole story is just this random occurence filled with hilarity, and so the story is more flexible....imo.

    I might go see it again.

    It's been made for the American market - which is tantamount to saying that Americans won't get English humour. Still, you enjoyed it, and that's the main thing.
