The hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy

This is a good movie to kill some time. Its fairly Abstract, something that you will associate with Stanley Kubrick type films, though this is much better. People call this a Sci fi adventure. I choose to call it an upright British Comedy. You see all too often a lot of the styles, now common with movies and soaps in Britian. ofcourse, the ones that are comic. The movie is based on the book by the same name. It revolves around an Earthman, Arthur Dent, who wakes up one morning to find out that his home is going to demolished to make way for a new bypass. Little does he know that his planet is going to face the same fate and also that his best friend is an alien, and the girl he loves, is goung to be carged with the kidnapping of the president of space federations. The movie is then about how in the past an alien race asked the meaning of life and everything. The super computer took a long time to answer it and eventually gave the answer as 42. To find the true answer, the computer built another super computer which incorporates life itself and is indeed .................. I dont want to blow it. So the messed up story goes on and on ... there is talk of how god created earth and people .. and infact how once again, certain workers are going to rebuild it. Basically its a very good one time watch, however, i doubt anyone will watch it multiple times. Also its a bit different from the books. Arthur loves Trillian in the movies .... ;)
