The Hitch-Hiker's Guide (2005)

Empire Online's 4\* review is here... & the BBC page is here .

The problem is that the story is one of the first multi-media stories ever, starting on radio, moving to books and onto TV. Anyone that knows anyone of these stories well is going to struggle with this 21st Century (and very short) version. I'm not sure what it is, and despite the homages to the original series, such as the TV's show's Marvin appearing, and Simon Jones (TV & Radio's original "Arthur Dent") having a cameo, and an otherwise marvelous cast, it didn't work for me and I think Empire will regret the 4\*s review.
