Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

A 2005 British-American comic science fiction film directed by Garth Jennings, based upon previous works in the media franchise of the same name created by Douglas Adams. It stars Martin Freeman, Sam Rockwell, Mos Def, Zooey Deschanel, and the voices of Stephen Fry (the guide book) and Alan Rickman (Marvin, the Paranoid Android). Adams, who co-wrote the screenplay with Karey Kirkpatrick, died in 2001, before production began; the film is dedicated to him. Everyman Arthur Dent is whisked off the Earth seconds before it is demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Sadly, his day has only just begun. Before it's over, he will have been blown up, attended a poetry reading, been thrown out of an airlock, rescued, reunited with the love of his life, shot at, had a fish stuck in his ear, insulted, whacked, sickened, deprived of tea, learned the answer to the ultimate question, and almost had his brain sawed out by mice. He then goes to have lunch.
Trivia: Deep Thought explains the significance of the number 42, at 42 minutes into the film.
