Review For those who are fans of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's five-book "trilogy," I have two words of advice: Don't Panic! The 2005 film version of the book isn't nearly as bad as many Hitchhiker's lovers have feared. Of course, it's also not as good as it could have been. For the most part, this big-screen re-telling of Adams' inaugural book plays it safe, offers some solid performances and nice special effects, and provides some chuckles along the way. "Definitive," this isn't. But it will do in a pinch...There's certainly something of Adams in this version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, although perhaps not enough to make it an unqualified success. Maybe there was a concern that making it too offbeat would create accessibility problems for those unfamiliar with the books or the radio series. Or maybe it's not inherently cinematic enough.

Review What these characters do is not as important as what they say, how they say it, and what it will mean to Douglas Adams fans. To me it got old fairly quickly. The movie was more of a revue than a narrative, more about moments than an organizing purpose, and cute to the point that I yearned for some corrosive wit from its second cousin, the Monty Python universe. But of course I do not get the joke. I do not much want to get the joke, but maybe you will. It is not an evil movie. It wants only to be loved, but movies that want to be loved are like puppies in the pound: No matter how earnestly they wag their little tails, you can adopt only one at a time.

Quotes
Dan Jolin, Empire A very British, very funny sci-fi misadventure that's guaranteed to win converts.
David Edelstein, Slate ...smart, if not earth-shattering, fun.
Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle Wildly imaginative, humane, playful and deflating of all pretense.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone Monty Python meets Star Wars...
Tim Knight, Reel.com ...so imaginative and cheekily funny that it's nearly as irresistible as a freshly mixed Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster...
