    I never read the book either, but I'll probably go see the movie. One of my friends read it when I was younger and loved it. I just want to see what it's about.

    Yeah, never read the book but have always wanted to. So will drag the woman to this movie since she is dragging me to "The Wedding Date" eh gad.
  5. The book was hilarious. Can't wait to see the movie.

    That is so awesome!!! I love that book, and from the looks of it they did a good job turning it into a movie. Should be absolutely hilarious!

    Yeah, all the guys on my D&D team are drooling in anticipation for this movie. We haven't been this excited since since Star Trek Voyager (even though they had a stupid half Klingon chick, and everyone know that humans and Klingons can't reproduce 'cause of the difference in their dna). We're hoping that the opening doesn't interfere with the academic olympics (Chucky Johnson is our top 'm'athlete and can't miss). Jimmy Ignatowsky might miss the premier though, he might be on a date with his girlfriend (she lives in Canada and they've had sex. He's such a stud). I hope to see you all there, I have to go find my inhaler. Live long and prosper \V/ /

    Nice try there, but my Hitchhiker phase was WELL after my D&D phase. (Sadly, this is true. . .)

    For those who have never read the book, the opening passage of the first book of the more than three booked "trilogy" gives a good idea of the mood:

    I watched the trailer again and I think that is Larry Flynt's torso that crawls across the table.

    IronBuckI Calmer than you are.

    Looks like another example of not being able to recreate the book. It's pretty difficult to recreate a two headed three armed president of the universe. The character playing Arthur is exactly like I imagined him, but Prefect, Trillian, the Heart of Gold, the Vogon ships, and basically the rest of the movie aren't. I just hope that they only do the first book. It would be a shame if they tried to fit all of the "trilogy" into one movie, or even three. Also, I hope they have some kind of narration to tell some of the very funny things that aren't actually said by any of the characters.

    I'm going to go ahead and spoil the movie for everyone now, and tell you (like Kinch did in a recent poker thread) the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is 42....Hope that doesn't ruin it for you.:tongue2:

    Edit: Just watched the trailer again, and I'm definitely going to go see it.
