] This review is based on a substantially complete version
] of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy shown to a small
] group of journalists in London on 31st March 2005, to
] which I was invited by Buena Vista International and
] Digital Outlook.
The short version is this guy HATES this film. Lots of comments and some counter-reviews on Slashdot. It appears, however, that some of my favorite moments from the original, such as the commentaries on God and infinity, are missing or highly redacted. Comments that "some things just don't work on film" are really stupid here given that this book was already made into a movie. I'm sure its funny. I'm sure its been playtested, and if it wasn't funny they'd have re-edited. I'm not sure its going to be smart.
