The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy


Martin Freeman ("The Office") headlines a cast of wayward intergalactic travelers in this adaptation of Douglas Adams' cult classic. The special effects are inventive, the sight gags and narration are hilarious, but the actors never quite find their way amidst all the insanity. Although it doesn't reach the absurdly funny heights of the book, it's still oddly comforting.
