... in just five days.
"Mr. Dent", he said.
"Hello? Yes?" said Arthur.
"Some factual information for you. Have you any idea how much damage that bulldozer would suffer if I just let it roll straight over you?"
"How much?" said Arthur.
"None at all," said Mr. Prosser, and stormed nervously off wondering why his brain was filled with a thousand hairy horseman all shouting at him.
By a curious coincidence, "None at all" is exactly how much suspicion the ape-descendant Arthur Dent had that one of his closest friends was not descended from an ape, but was in fact from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse and not from Guildford as he usually claimed.

I'm a really really big HHGTTG fan.. but the reviews I've seen so far - well, the film doesnt live up to the book. So be prepared.
It would appear that they've chopped quite a lot of the funny dialogue. The thing that made the book.
So - yes - will be there queueing for the film. In my dressing gown.
but with a fairly low expectation.. Like a MS Exchange administrator looking at Exchange 2005..

It is also difficult to capture Adams' hilarious narrative. Even if you have time for it, how you get that across on film?
The reviews I've read have been mixed, but I too will be queued up on Friday...towel in hand.
