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?


Sorry. This movie was probably the greatest waste of a dollar in my life. It still
bothers me if I think about it too long.
