Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, or: Zemeckis don't get it

From Atlantic Refuge:

Buddomon: adore Who Framed Roger Rabbit -which is the masterpiece by which all other live action/animated inferiors, such as Space Jam and the loathsome Looney Tunes: Back in Action, should be measured, imho

Try Spirited Away, or Grave of the Fireflies, if you want to see real storytelling.

Jack Pantalones: He was once attached to an adaptation of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.  Rumor has it that his major stumbling block was the book's answer to the riddle of Life, the Universe and Everything: "42." 

Good story.

I'll watch the movie, I guess, but I was never a fan of Patch--sorry, Douglas Adams. He popularized a brand of humor that John Sladek pioneered before him, only with more edge. I'd love to see an anime adaptation of Sladek's Roderick and Roderick at Random.
