While it won't win any awards, it's fun as a time killer.

Fans of the book will probably be a little disappointed, but anyone encountering the Hitchhiker's Guide for the first time should be thoroughly entertained. It is very strange and very funny in a way that Adams' work exemplified.

"The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" is an enjoyable sci-fi romp with a strong twist of self-effacing British raillery that children of all ages will get a charge from.

It's hard to dislike a movie in which one of the heroes gets brain power from lemon juice.

Considering all the things that could have gone wrong in the making of this picture, it's a minor miracle that it turned out as well as it did.

A lot of fun and something different, poised to reach a broader audience with its silly and spirited tour of space -- which is vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big, by the way.

Devotees of the original stories are going to be frustrated that their favorite bits have been truncated or excised outright, while newbies will likely wonder what all the fuss has been about these last few decades.

Adams fans will have to content themselves with the fact that, while the film is not perfect, it is indeed the best they could realistically have hoped for.

On the grand scale of adaptations, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy falls...closer to Lord of the Rings than it does The Shining, or I, Robot.

For all its huge sets, high-tech glitz, and CGI effects, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy fails to capture the deadpan drollness of the Adams novels

The world (the Universe, and Everything) is divided into fans of Douglas Adams, and those who have never read anything by the man

This film is a pleasant experience but a throwaway one. It is hard to be harsh on a film with as many smiles as this one. For many of us the jokes will be just too familiar.

...character interactions and relationships have been jettisoned in favor of wild gesticulations, frantic emoting and a heap of commotion.

I'll never be able to figure out how they can turn words like "go" and "no" into two-syllable words.

The big problem with Hitchhiker, and it is a crucial one, is that the middle section of the film really isn't that interesting.
