Review of 'The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy'

the_hitchhikers_guide_to_the_galaxy.jpg Finally the famous radio series/novel/television series (in that order) comes to the big screen with this hollywood take. A lot of the witty dialogue of the original versions has been lost but the movie is generally quite enjoyable though I would have thought this is probably only true for someone familiar with the original…What someone would think about it just seeing it for the first time…I can see they might find it confusing with a number of questions left unanswered. The love affair between Arthur and Tricia, well, we will leave that one unaddressed (how COULD they!). A good lot of fun if not taken to literally (by those obsessed with the material).
