The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy

April 29, 2005 | 109 minutes
Directed by: Garth Jennings | Written by: Douglas Adams, Karey Kirkpatrick
Everyone has bad mornings. You wake up late, you stub your toe, you burn the toast...but for a man named Arthur Dent (Martin Freeman), this goes far beyond a bad day. When he learns that a friend of his is actually an alien with advanced knowledge of Earth's impending destruction, he is transported off the Earth seconds before it is exploded to make way for a new hyperspace motorway. And as if that's not enough, throw in being wanted by the police, Earth II, an insane electronic encyclopedia, no tea whatsoever, a chronically depressed robot and the search for the meaning of life, and you've got the greatest adventure off Earth.
