Do You Have Your Towel?

Towel Day

Shanna and I went to see the movie Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on Friday.  Apparently there is a scene after/during the final credits which we missed but I had a very important meeting I had to attend.  The movie itself, like the Guide, has many omissions and contains much that is apocryphal, or at least wildly inaccurate.  In other words, true to Disney form they took a great story and turned it into something that was almost, but not quite, entirely unlike the book.  Having said that I, unlike poor Authur and his Nutri-Matic tea, thoroughly enjoyed the movie.  If you've seen the old BBC television serial of the Guide, you'll be happy to see the old Marvin standing in the queue.

If you're hoping to see a huge starship, one hundred and fifty metres long, shaped like a sleek running shoe, perfectly white and mindboggingly beautiful, forget it.  Want to see Ford's hair [that] was wiry and gingerish and brushed backwards from the temples?  Go somewhere else.  Want to see two missiles turned into a bowl of petunias and a very surprised looking whale?  Then, oh wait, that's in there...nevermind.  If, however, you'd like to see Mos Def do a fabulous job bringing Ford to life, poke fun at the followers of the Great Green Arkleseizure and otherwise have a good time, then this a good movie to see.  Just remember everything from the book and laugh at the jokes while everyone else looks at you and your towel like you're from Squornshellous Zeta.  Oh, and if you happen to be in Section ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha and need someone to go to the show with you, give me a ring.
