I went to see the midnight showing of Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy last night.
It was boring and dumb - what made it even worse were the geeks behind me that snortled and said, "That's so funny" - these same geeks walked out of the movie saying, "That was the best movie ever!"
I didn't read the book by Douglas Adams, so I'm not sure if the book is the same or not but, it had no focus. Some things could have been exploited for more story value and yet other things looked out of place.
For a movie that took almost two years of production - the scope was VERY limited for a movie about the galaxy. Everything looked set based rather than location based. There were things in shots that obviously were cut down elements from a larger story. That said, I couldn't have taken even 10 more minutes of it!
I'm only reporting this because Douglas Adams was a HUGE Mac person. At his death many Mac websites eulogized him.
