Gawkman and Murph go see a movie. I think it was called OMG LOOK OUT FOR THOSE FALLING ROCKS NO WAIT IT WAS HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY STUPID!
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has this to say about Pluh.com reviews:
"Pluh.com reviews are a rare event that occurs when the editor suddently gets an urge to actually do a review in order to add more content to the website. The cause of this urge is not known, and it is argued that if we could determine this cause, all mysteries of the universe would be solved. Or at least Pluh.com might have a little more content."
So, guess what I went and saw? None other than "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."
Now, this is the kindof movie I wouldn't recommend to anyone. Let's call this group of people "Persons A". The group of people I WOULD recommend it to I shall call "Persons B". Now, Persons A will probably not be found at Pluh.com, while Persons B is likely to go to Pluh.com. So, you are probably like Person B. Now, of Persons B there are two subgroups, Persons BA, and Persons BB. Persons BA will have read the book entitled "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", while Persons BB will have NOT read the book. From here, the review will be split into two parts, so choose which part is appropriate for you.
Persons BA: So, you've read the book, and wish to know whether the movie lives up to the book. In a short answer, "yes". In a more complicated answer, "The movie managed to cover an amazing amount of the book, things I totally didn't expect them to. Like the sperm whale thing, and the Vogon poetry. Unfortunately, because of this, some jokes aren't probably explained, which could confuse Persons BB, so it's a good thing you've read the book. The story was changed a bit near the end to give it some sense of closure. Of course, if you recall there really was no ending of the original book, so I see it as an improvement. The additions and changes made, although not totally true to the book, were still true to the feel of the book. I definitely think overall that you will be pleased."
Persons BB: You will like this movie. However, there are a few disclaimers that should be made. Since, by reading this paragraph and not the previous, it's safe to assume that you indeed have not read the book. I don't believe that this will fail to make the movie enjoyable. There's plenty of hilarious random dumbness, and I mean RANDOM DUMBNESS that should fill you with joy. The downside is that the movie is very fast past, and it's very easy to get lost in what's going on. The plot probably won't make much sense, as characters are rushed into the scene, you hear the name once, and spend the rest of the film thinking, "Wait, who is this guy again?"
Don't despair though, because there are plenty of creatively shot scenes, hilarious moments, excellent visuals, and other stuff.
