We went to see Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy last night with Steve and his MENSA moving group.

I never read the books … and when I watched it on PBS, I gave up quickly because the production values were so low (really bad props & special effects and pretty marginal acting, IMHO).

The movie certainly had far better production values … and was pretty funny, but seemed kind of disjointed to me. From what I could tell, they took a bunch of sections of all the book and stuck them together in a bit of a hodge-podge. There were also a lot of important elements that they used but never explained (Towels, in particular … and the “Peril Sensitive Sunglasses” that Ford & Zaphod wore).

I did laugh a lot … but only at the individual gags … the movie lacked a cohesiveness that I would have liked.

    Reviews are so mixed on this one…I really loved the guy who plays the main character, however, when he played Tim on the BBC version of The Office.
