On the appropriate response to a film version of a low-key humorous science fiction novel:
. . . longtime fans of the "Hitchhiker's" book and radio series on which the movie is based -- will be mulling a different dilemma. Seeing the movie on opening night is a no-brainer for devotees, who have devoured every version of the series for more than 25 years. The real question is: Should you bring a towel? [salon]
I'm actually a little disappointed that I (probably) won't be seeing it right away. I'll be out of town all weekend and after that I'm starting my general exam which might not allow lots of time for movies. Who knows though. I think the real point is that I'd really like to see the movie before I know whether it's any good.
