Brian T. writes, "Reading Gordon's movie comments, reminded me that you and Brad appreciate British humor, so I thought I would put in my two sense for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. If you liked the books you will like the movie. While it is not a direct following of the books, Douglas Adams did write the screenplay so the movie is true to the nature of the books. The movie serves to remind us that we lost a wonderfully creative and slightly out of sync author. I am not one to go to the movies very often, last time being more than 18 months ago, but HHGTG was well worth the time and money. There is very little to offer in way of complaint. The casting is great, though somewhat unexpected. The acting is delightful and the story typically absurd and unexpected, as is Adam's nature. BTW I am not giving anything away when I say that they captured Zaphod especially well in that he is some sort of combination of a Texan and a Californian.. Which reminds me, there is supposed to be some sort of dig on Bush from Zaphod, but I was laughing too much, too lost in the movie to have caught it myself."
