Bob and I went today and saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. I expected it to suck. It has gotten reviews that are all over the map. But Bob is stone Hitchhiker dude and owns it in ever medium it has ever been in. Laments that the current release of the BBC radio version doesn't have the part where Marvin does Pink Floyd.
Off we went and you know, I quite liked it. I was properly entertained. It wasn't great, but it sure didn't suck. And Douglas Adams did finally get it to film, even if he died first.
