Hitchhiker's Guide

OK, how's this for a half-hearted endorsement: It didn't suck nearly as bad as I thought it would. It's not what my ideal movie adaptation would have looked like, but adaptations very seldom are.

I thought the actors did generally well; the writing was a bit more frantically paced and hand-waving than I would have liked, but that's endemic to Event Movies generally (and one reason I don't go to movies so much anymore).

I was, as usual, the only person in the theater to stay for the whole credits (this is exacerbated by, because of my odd schedule, my usually going to a late show when there are relatively few people in the theater). I was feeling pretty good at the end of the film but the walk out of the empty theater to the only car left in the parking lot is always a bit Marvinish...
