The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Rated PG 2005

Douglas Adams' beloved story, with some notable and pointless and absolutely confusing detours, remains the same: Arthur Dent (The Office's Martin Freeman) wakes up one morning to discover his home is to be demolished and replaced by a bypass -- the same fate awaiting Earth that very morning, as it is to be blown up by aliens seeking a shortcut through space. Dent's rescued by his old friend Ford Prefect (Mos Def), an alien who contributes entries to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, and along the way they encounter Ford's hippy-dippy "semicousin" Zaphod Beeblebrox (Sam Rockwell), earthling Tricia McMillan (Zooey Deschanel), and Marvin the Paranoid Android (voiced by Alan Rickman), who are traveling in a stolen spaceship to the mythical planet Magrathea, where they will find the question to which the answer is 42. But the filmmakers have disregarded most of Adams' important contributions, picking off the juicy meat and leaving only a bone for us to gnaw on. The droll has been made dull, a most inexplicable and unfortunate turn of events for so adored a genius, goofball work as this.
