Even those who love British humor (a la Monty Python) will find the script tedious and unimaginative.

Divertido, irreverente e recheado de efeitos visuais que contribuem para a história em vez de simplesmente se limitarem a funcionar como espetáculo à parte.

Like a good Brit, Hitchhiker's brings up something important but then gets distracted by silly names and puppets. Like Parliament.

I wasn't amazed or stunned by this movie, but I felt like it would be nice to hang out with.

The net effect is something like watching NBC's disagreeable rehash of The Office. They got most of the words right, but the music is all wrong.

Despite the perfect cast, fantastic book animations, & superb production design, this latest adaptation of Douglas Adams' novel is just not very enjoyable.

The layers of dry wit that are supposed to engage the grownups don't work ...

Overall, the film is enjoyable, but it is never exactly brilliant and is certainly less worthy than the novel.

A mixed bag, crammed with many inspired bits but never coalescing as a whole.

The film version truly captures the whimsical cynicism at the series' heart.

Yeah...but you have to read the book first.

Galaxy Quest succeeded by its story as much as by its stars and effects. Hitchhiker's feels more like a string of skits linked by awkward transitions.

You might not get it - whatever it is - but you can still have a good time.

Once you get past all the impenetrable dialogue exchanges and meandering plot twists, what you have is, at the core, a film with solid vision and heart.

Small, really small...Adams' sci-fi cult favorite lands on the screen minus a hyper-drive.

Adams would be pleased.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has inspired moments, but it becomes a conventional boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl -to-the-president -of-the-galaxy sort of tale.

A must-see for Hitchhiker's Guide devotees, an offbeat warm-up for those who devour everything intergalactic and a bit of a puzzlement for general movie fans.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

Flawed-but-fun.
