No, no, the problem with this movie is that they tried /not/ to put much of the book in
the movie. The number of half-jokes in the movie almost exceeds the number of /lines/.
Why in the name of all that is holy did they feel the need to repeatedly fail to include
the brilliant punchlines to Adams' jokes?

bothers me if I think about it too long.
