Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

The late Dou­glas Adams’ lit­er­ary favourite fi­nally ma­te­ri­alised in this bright, bizarre film that per­fectly cap­tures the essence of his tales. Martin Free­man ( pic­tured, Sher­lock) plays the Brit ev­ery­man who hitches a ride to outer space with his incog­nito alien buddy ( Mos Def) just be­fore the de­struc­tion of Earth. Hook­ing up with the last re­main­ing fe­male hu­man ( Zooey Deschanel), the trio be­comes in­volved in the wild schemes of the galaxy’s zany pres­i­dent ( Sam Rock­well). A won­der­fully wry sci- fi com­edy.
