The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy books were, it almost goes without saying, a profound influence on my early comedy-and-science fiction loving years. And the 1982 TV series was awesome, at least to my 12-year-old self. So I went into the 2005 movie with low expectations -- because how could it ever be as wonderful as my memories -- but the movie fell short of even that. Everyone's timing just seems off, and the acting is overall just... blah. Very disappointing.
