The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas AdamsSeconds before the Earth is demolished to make way for a galactic freeway, Arthur Dent is plucked off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the revised edition of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy who, for the last fifteen years, has been posing as an out-of-work actor.
Together this dynamic pair begin a journey through space aided by quotes from The Hitchhikers Guide (A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have) and a galaxy-full of fellow travelers: Zaphod Beeblebrox—the two-headed, three-armed ex-hippie and totally out-to-lunch president of the galaxy; Trillian, Zaphods girlfriend (formally Tricia McMillan), whom Arthur tried to pick up at a cocktail party once upon a time zone; Marvin, a paranoid, brilliant, and chronically depressed robot; Veet Voojagig, a former graduate student who is obsessed with the disappearance of all the ballpoint pens he bought over the years.
Kid reviews for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
It is possible that "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" should only be reviewed by, and perhaps only be seen by, people who are familiar with the original material to the point of obsession. My good friend Andy Ihnatko is such a person, and considered the late Douglas Adams to be one of only three or four people worthy to be mentioned in the same breath as P. Adams may in fact have been the only worthy person. Such a Hitchhiker Master would be able to review this movie in terms of its in-jokes, its references to various generations of the Guide universe, its earlier manifestations as books, radio shows, a TV series and the center of a matrix of Web sites. He would understand what the filmmakers have done with Adams' material, and how, and why, and whether the film is faithful to the spirit of the original.

This section contains details about the movie, including its classification by the Australian Government Classification Board and the associated consumer advice lines. Arthur Dent Martin Freeman wakes up one morning to find his house is about to be demolished to allow for an interstate bypass. His best friend Ford Prefect Mos Def arrives, announcing that he is an alien and that the earth will be destroyed in twelve minutes to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Luckily for Arthur, Ford is able to hitchhike rides on alien spacecraft, and rescues Arthur by hitchhiking a ride aboard a Vogon spacecraft just before the Earth is destroyed. Unfortunately the pair is discovered by the Vogons and ejected into space. Repeated exposure to violent content can reinforce the message that violence is an acceptable means of conflict resolution. Repeated exposure also increases the risks that children will become desensitised to the use of violence in real life or develop an exaggerated view about the prevalence and likelihood of violence in their own world.
It can sometimes be difficult to predict whether you are happy with a child viewing the content of certain movies. Is This Movie Suitable's aim is to provide helpful and informative reviews that highlight anything we feel you would want know about before committing your time and money to a trip to the cinema, movie store or streamable content. What follows is a series of adventures across space, finding out the meaning of life and ceaselessly searching for a nice cup of tea. The plot gets a little muddled from time to time and for people not familiar with the story it may seem like events lurch from one location to another with no real rhyme or reason. But although this does sometimes fall flat like when we get side tracked with a visit to the planet of Viltvodle VI for reasons swiftly forgotten afterwards , on other occasions it actually adds a pleasantly new touch like the dead-brained bureaucracy of Vogsphere where any new idea by the inhabitants means a slap in the face. What the movie version does have in spades is charm, both for children and adults.
