Start Panicking

I have to admit, the bubble-headed Marvin is seriously off-putting.

Things are starting to look dicey for the "Hitchhikers" crowd as a long-time correspondent and biographer of Douglas Adams gives the movie a seriously harsh review.

Spiderman showed how to make a film that both catered to the fan-boy set and appealed to a mass audience. Most adaptations at least try to aim for one of the two targets and hope for the best. It sounds like HHGTTG will alienate the hardcore and have no appeal for the masses. Yikes.
