Jimmy's Buzz Guide Review:
A frantic and occasional funny adaptation of Douglas Adams' novel. It contains enough action, humor and memorable characters to entertain some newcomers, but it will mostly please fans of the book.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman) gets yanked from the Earth by best friend and alien Ford Perfect (Mos Def) seconds before his house is bulldozed by a Vogon constructor fleet which destroys it to make way for a hyperspace expressway. Next thing he knows, he's aboard the Vogon ship, reading the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (voiced by Stephen Fry) and wondering where he might get some tea. But he and Ford are not safe yet. The Vogons want to throw them into the vacuum of space, right after they read some of the third worst poetry in the known universe. Luckily, the spaceship Heart of Gold picks up the stranded hitchhikers, and just in the nick of time. Stolen by the dim but groovy President of the Galaxy, Zaphod Beeblebrox (Sam Rockwell - in a George W Mush mode), the ship has an Improbability Drive that causes certain mischief, turning the stowaways into loveseats and later two missiles into a bowl of petunias and a sperm whale. Also onboard is doe-eyed Earth girl Tricia "Trillian" McMillan (Zooey Deschanel), who previously ditched Arthur at a costume party on Earth to satisfy her wanderlust with Zaphod. The crew then embarks on a quest to find the Ultimate Question to Life, the Universe and Everything after supercomputer Deep Thought (voiced by Helen Mirren) found the answer: 42. On the run and without a home, Arthur discovers that life's true meaning comes from the answers found within. Although it may be more smile-inducing than laugh-aloud funny, and have those unfamiliar with the original material scratching their heads, its strong visuals and sight gags make it entertaining and often enjoyable.
