Don't Panic

Wonderfully wacky. Absurdly hysterical. Insanely irreverent. It's the laugh-out-loud intergalactic comedy THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY. Based on Douglas Adams' best-selling novel and filled with out-of-this world visual and special effects, this is one ride you don't want to miss. Seconds before Earth is destroyed by the nastiest creatures in the universe, mild-mannered Arthur Dent is whisked into space by his friend, an alien in human form. And so the misadventures begin as he and fellow travellers, including a two-headed Galactic President and a paranoid android, search for answers to the mystery of life, the universe and everything.

What a total load of rubbish, graphicly inferior to the origional series, the story line had been altered out of proportion, things that never happened were included, the acting was tripe.

A real good funny science fiction, a good pick for a light hearted funny mood. The story line and the concept is quite interesting for a science fiction lover. hats off to Adam douglas.

I didn't think this was going to be fantastic - but WOW - it was seriously boring! It has none of the charm or wit from the original series. Could only watch 3/4's of it before giving up altogether.

An absolute travesty. Complete butchery of nearly everything that makes HHGTTG great. Not only is the storyline pitifully executed but in the day of computer special effects I found Zaphods SFX to be... Read more

Two words - bloody awful. Is almost an insult to the original series, and a very surreal experience watching it. Ford is a token black guy, and I am NOT being racist - they just put him in there as... Read more

Crap crap and more crap. Had to turn it off before it ended we thought it was so slow and stupid.

Absolute rubbish, jokes were dull and lame. Along with this decidely average special effects and acting on the same level as 'days of our lives'. Avoid at all costs.

The only part of the review that persuaded me to try this was the word "insane." Gave up after about 10 minutes. A waste of plastic and time.
