Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy: Not as bad as Vogon poetry

Reasons to like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Movie:

1.

2. Good uses for your towel

3. Incessant insults of George W. Bush.


If you go to the movie:

1. Have very low expectations.

2. Stay for the fun bit during the closing credits (you don't have to wait until it finishes).


On the Shockwave ratings scale of 9-23 where 9 is low, 23 is high and all Steve Brust novels get a 17, I rate HHGttG at about a 14.
