THE HITCHHIKER’S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY
7TWO, Tonight, 7.30pm, PG ( 2005)
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.
