The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Fans of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s books were left disappointed, but to be honest, it was always far too ambitious and bonkers of a project to squeeze into one film.
Nevertheless, getting to see gormless protagonist Arthur Dent dragged into space in his pyjamas is still quite gratifying. If you’ve never read the books, prepare yourself for a zany space adventure with wacky characters - and one depressed paranoid android.
It also features the current Bilbo Baggins, Martin Freeman, before he crossed into Middle Earth. Even now the Hitchhiker’s Guide still makes us wonder, “why 42?”
