#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Everyone has bad mornings. You wake up late, you stub your toe, you burn the toast…but for a man named Arthur Dent, this goes far beyond a bad day. When he learns that a friend of his is actually an alien with advanced knowledge of Earth’s impending destruction, he is transported off the Earth seconds before it is exploded to make way for a new hyperspace motorway. And as if that’s not enough, throw in being wanted by the police, Earth II, an insane electronic encyclopedia, no tea whatsoever, a chronically depressed robot and the search for the meaning of life, and you’ve got the greatest adventure off Earth.
Plot: Mere seconds before the Earth is to be demolished by an alien construction crew, Arthur Dent is swept off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher penning a new edition of “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”

Those Cheeky Mice And Their Excellent Film
Overall a tremendous success. It’s very funny, very kooky and visually gorgeous. I saw it with about 2000 media persons and we all loved it, which is a pretty hard thing to accomplish.
If you’ve never read the books (and I suggest you do, it moves at such a pace you might find yourself going ‘eh?’ a lot) then I don’t know what you’d make of it. Think Monty Python in space, or a very British version of The Fifth Element.
As an adaptation I think it works extremely well though there were a few confusing moments even for me as the large philosophical questions were crammed into two hours worth of movie. The new stuff is cleverly done and works a treat IMO.
The cast: never been a fan of the office but Martin Freeman is perfect as Arthur Dent, Sam Rockwell hilariously OTT and Mos Def a surprising choice but one that really works. Trillian isn’t that important in the novel and the movie bumps up her role to a love triangle situation between her Arthur and Zaphod. Again, Deschanel is an odd choice (another yank) but she is utterly spellbinding (oh the shower scene…hubba hubba).
The FX are great, both CGI and the Jim Henson creatures (the Vogons, brilliantly voiced by The League of Gentleman). The opening title song is worth the price of admission alone (think Eric Idle at his peak).
So I loved it, though the ending is also a bit of an anti-climax, but only perhaps because I was expecting something bigger. Still, it’s p***-funny and that’s the main thing.
Best moment: Ford attacks the Vogons with a towel and foils them by closing a tiny garden gate (“Oh no! We’ll have to go around!”).
Why would anybody make this … except for money(???)
This was a huge disappointment. As a long-time fan of Adams and of the BBC radio and the television version, I was crushed. I actually fell asleep! I watched it again afterwards, still shocked.
The acting was insipid and unbelievable (and that in an epic space fantasy!). Zaphod was way overplayed and unbelievable and the two heads and three arms were just plain wrong. One head could not talk to the other! Who is Ford? Why is he named Ford? Why is he black? Why does he run to Arthur’s house with a grocery cart full of beer and peanuts? There is so little motivation in this film for anything! Why is there an entire construction company and 25 men? It was just a little house. Besides, they cut out the dialogue about finding the plans, the basement, the disused lavatory, and the leopard. So, why bother with all the props? Marvin is short and moves quickly and often. This is not in keeping with the character! The great Warwick Davis deserves better.
What a waste of the adorable Zooey! She wants to go to with Arthur? Why? And why would she desire him anyway? BTW, they met at a ‘fancy dress’ ball. This, uh, doesn’t mean weird costumes. Huge mistake #1. Love story where there was none.
Characters drift in and out of continuity. The letter “Z” is pronounced ZEE by Tricia but ZED by everyone else. The planet Magrathea is pronounced variously as magra-THAY-uh and magra-THEE-uh. The excellent narrator does his best to hold things together, but he’s no Peter Jones alas, and he’s not given the chance actually. The name of the film **IS** the name of the book but the part of the book is hugely reduced.
What’s this ‘dolphins with musical bit’ for the beginning? Of course, *I* knew what it was (stupid and wasteful), but did most of the audience? That’s not the beginning anyway. These folks should’ve followed Douglas Adams — who wrote the story for radio. They were not “treating” a book here! They were working with output from a man who had a tremendous, albeit unusual, understanding of how to tell a story — the sequences being especially important to his style. And this story is nothing if not style.
The end seemed to tease us about the restaurant at the end of the universe and then confuse us about at which end it was located. Good grief! It’s the end of the universe in time, not location. This huge gaffe #2 is enough for me to hope that these same folks do not get a chance to make a sequel.
