Moustroll Good movie but grossly overrated
CommentsXp Best movie ever!
Teringer An Exercise In Nonsense
Kinley This movie feels like it was made purely to piss off people who want good shows
chadchaplin This might be the worst movie I have ever seen. An hour in I was begging for it to be over. I took a nap for the last 30 minutes, which was the best thing that happened in the movie.
view_and_review So I heard that the book is really good. That could be true. Most of the time the book is a lot better than the movie. This movie was far from impressive.Arthur (Martin Freeman) befriends Ford Perfect (Mos Def aka Yasiin Bey) while unbeknownst to him Ford was an alien just visiting Earth. Ford, being a good friend, takes Arthur with him on an interstellar hitchhiking voyage just before Earth is destroyed. And, as the title would suggest, the movie is about hitchhiking from galaxy to galaxy while avoiding being killed, captured or otherwise.The movie is very quirky with some weird characters. Weird characters don't ruin a movie--in fact they can sometimes enhance a movie--and I don't think that the characters were all that bad. The story was somewhat flat as well as its execution. I didn't find the movie funny or terribly interesting. Maybe I should read the book.
Ad_Nauseum The top review now is a horrible TL;DR.Here is a better review: This is an unusual comedy that does NOT go down the already cleared path of cliché movies - be it comedies or otherwise - and not just cracks jokes but at no point presents itself in any serious way. Or rather - is from almost the very start a collection of ridiculous absurdities that are managed and kept in line by a "logical" story. However be warned - this is in a weird, modified way pretty much standard British humour. And that I find very refreshing, and so will probably you too. So go watch it!
Asma Alkaabi The hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy was recommended by a friend who's a physics student and I had absolutely no idea what to expect. After watching the film, I searched about it and there turned out to be a TV series and a book linked to the story so obviously I'm not a fan of the past work but I sure did love this movie! It's witty, creative, and adorable. I was amazed by the visuals and the actors perfected the scenes especially Sam Rockwell (Zaphod). The narrator's voice in the background is definitely a clever touch. It is the kind of film where you would question your existence as the closing credits screen rolls. Overall, it's an incredible one and definitely a must-watch!
