    I can see it now. At TL...

    Push: "Hi there Marvin!"

    Marvin: "Here I am brain the size of a planet, and all they want me to do is to greet guests... (turning to Michelle) You see that trash can over there, you notice the smugness as he greets people in an effort to keep the part clean... Call that job satisfaction? Cuz I don't."

    Push: "But Marvin! I love you! Give me a hug you big palooka!" (Starts playing the song, "Marvin, I Love You")

    Mavin: "I'd rather rust first... Maybe I will ride Space Mountain untill my diodes fall out... And they start parting my memory chips out for the Asimo exhibit... And my body could be used by the galatic travel agency of star tours to patch the hulls of cargo vessles... Oh, I am so depressed!"

    I will be seeing the film this afternoon. When I get back, I'll tell you all what you should think about it.

    But that was one of my favorite parts of the movie! He was so cute and adorable. I just want to go hug him. So round and cute.

    Just got home from seeing the movie. I really loved it. Funny, true to the tone of the books. Almost poetic. Marvin the robot looks cute, but that is part of the gag. You expect him to sound the way he looks, but he doesn't. He is really just a highly depressed robot with a Woody Allen complex.

    Fun, fun, fun

    We saw it there last night. There's no show - they have props in the main lobby and in the downstairs area, much like they did for Pirates. Pretty cool.

    Thanks for the box office info BPF - I was interested to see how it did over opening weekend. (Can't find any figures for the UK yet)

    Saw the film Saturday - I can recommend it.
    The opening musical number had a lot of (non book readers) scratching their heads, but I thought it was pretty funny.

    Any problems with the film are made up for by the spot-on casting.
    I can't think who would be better suited to these characters than Rockwell, Freeman, Deschaneld, Nighy and yes, even Mos Def.

    The Vogons were awesome AAs/puppets and Marvin was perfect.
    (The man who's inside the Marvin suit, Warwick Davis of Harry Potter and Star Wars fame, lives near me and did a Q&A at our local library a couple of weeks before the film opened.)

    My only disappointment was that they cut the line - "Be a lucky escape for Arsenal if it did" - but that probably doesn't play well in the international marketplace.

    The acid test will be how it plays with people who don't know the books...

    Here is my review that will be printed in the local Newspaper here in New Zealand:

    Don't Panic! If you've been nervous about how good The Hitchhiker's
    Guide to the Galaxy movie will be, you can stop. The movie is very
    well done. Unfortunately this review is coming from someone who has
    never experienced the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in it's many
    forms, which include a radio series, a record album, a novel, a
    television series, a computer game, a stage show, a comic book and
    even a towel. But I do have this to offer to the die hard fans;
    whenever I am asked if a certain aspect of the story has been included
    in the movie, my answer has always been yes. So, from what I've heard
    from other people, and from what I've read, the movie has stayed very
    faithful to the story, with a few additions however, but I'll get to
    them later.
    The cast of the movie was chosen very well. Martin Freeman (from
    the television series, The Office) plays the everyman, Arthur Dent,
    and he fits the role perfectly, and his reaction to a good cup of tea
    is priceless. Sam Rockwell, plays a great Zaphod Beeblebrox, the
    Galatic President who thinks he's cool, as opposed to actually being
    cool. One of the highlights is Alan Rickman's voice as Marvin the
    Paranoid Android, and I laugh whenever I think of his character saying
    the line: "Life, Don't talk to me about life." Also Bill Nighy is
    another great casting pick in his portrayal of planet builder
    Slartibartfast, and yes, I spelt the character name correctly.
    Aside from the live action cast, I enjoyed the non-human
    characters in the movie, I loved how, unlike many movies these days,
    Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. did not rely on CGI (Computer
    Generated Imagery) to develop it's characters, pretty much all the
    aliens and robots were designed by the Jim Henson Creature Shop. Sure,
    CGI would have been cheaper and easier to do, but rarely does it match
    the realism of an animatronic figure or a puppet. The film does rely
    on CGI quite a bit though when it comes to space travelling scenes, or
    backgrounds of scenes, but it does it very well. One scene that sticks
    out the most is when Arthur takes a ride with Slartibartfast onto the
    construction ground of planets. It's a scene that can only be fully
    appreciated on the big screen, and it's too bad that it's not on IMAX,
    because that visual alone would be worth the price of admission.
    Overall The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is a witty,
    adventurous, philisophical, and very funny movie. It really is too bad
    that Douglas Adams died before his creation was complete, though I
    trust that thanks to his additions to the movie (i.e. an added love
    triangle, and an added character, played by John Malkovich) his
    enthusiasm for the story lives on.
    One last thing, if you can walk out of the theatre without humming
    "So Long, and thanks for all the fish" there is something wrong with
    you, now if you excuse me, I'm kind of hungry, I might try that
    restaurant at the end of the universe.
    What an idiot....

    Yeah, I do that Twitter thing.

    Foreign Box office for movies can be checked out on Boxofficemojo.com... It is a trade site primarly, and is loosely affiliated with the Disney Corporation as it is hosted by Movies.com...

    Last I looked the foreign BO has not been posted yet, but the final domestic figgures haven't either... 21 million is only an estimated figgure untill they are finalized, I believe, later today...

    Oh on a side note I found a Variety article about the BO return on the movie... I posted it on a new thread here.

    Ummm, i wrote the review, if you mean the sources I used for the review, I guess you can go to www.imdb.com, the newspaper is the South Taranaki Star, and it doesn't have a website that I am aware of.
