<%image(20050503-hitchhiker.jpg|100|76|hitchhiker)%> I can’t quite explain the appeal, but I have to say that The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a really great movie. I saw it the other night with my wife and bro-in-law Joel, and we all agreed that it was a big thumbs up. And the thumbs up is not just the result of clever marketing, it’s because the makers of the movie somehow created a hysterical sequence of incredibly ridiculous events that left us in stitches. Don’t expect a plot or anything from this movie. It’s far too random for that. It’s most like a collage of loosely connected events that surpasses all norms of normalcy. If you’re in the mood for a good laugh, I strongly recommend Hitchhiker’s. If you want something deep and meaningful, all that this movie will give you is . . .
