Hitchhikers Film

OH MY GOD! THIS IS SO GOOD!

As you can see, I absolutely loved this film. The books were amazing, it has to be said, and lots of people were worried about the film, but it was so good.

After fans of the books/radio/TV series have argued about the casting of Mos Def (A black american rapper) as Ford Prefect, he came across really well.

It was nice to see Douglas Adam's book on the big screen, and it was still very like the book. Lots of the "classic" gags from his written work were still there (eg: Petunias and a Sperm Whale), but not all. This was a shame, but as we all know, to put the whole book into 2-ish hours is no mean feat.

The one thing that slightly irritated me was the love story. It doesnt appear in the books/radio/TV series, but is made a very big thing in the film. It gets my back up. But even Douglas himself admitted it would have to be included if a film was ever made, so here it is.

So, in summary, GO AND SEE THIS FILM.

Weather you are a first time hitchhiker or a dedicated fan, you will definately enjoy this.

And just remember 2 things:

  • Always Remember Where Your Towel Is.
  • DON'T PANIC!

  1. One thing that bothered me was that the film never explained why towels were so important. I know because I've read the books, but people who see the film as their first experience of Hitchhiker would get a bit confused. But it was a good film, even the bits that were new for the film (the gun) seemed very Douglas Adams.

    I agree with the towel thing, I've never read the books so I did not know, though I asked my Dad …

    The towel bit made no sense at all, I wish they wouldn't just assume everyone has read the book.
