The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy quotes

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy poster
The producers have stated that this movie was not a literal translation of the books (just as the books were not a literal translation of the original radio show), but all of the new ideas and characters came from Douglas Adams. The hired writer simply came aboard to improve structure and make the screenplay more coherent.GoofsWhen Arthur is speaking to Trillian (Zooey Deschanel) as she takes a shower, he briefly begins to address her by her real name (Zooey), then corrects himself.QuotesThe Book: In the beginning the universe was created. This made a lot of people angry and has widely been considered as a bad move.Crazy creditsThe film has effectively two title sequences. The first is part of the opening song, when the title appears out of a screenful of bubbles as the "So Long And Thanks For All The Fish" number gears up. The second is after the Vogon ships destroy the Earth and The Book is shown for the first time; as the original theme music of the radio show and miniseries plays, the book's spine rotates into view and reveals its, and the movie's, title.ConnectionsFeatured in Siskel & Ebert & the Movies: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy/It's All Gone Pete Tong/Kingdom of Heaven/xXx: State of the Union/Ladies in Lavender (2005)Soundtracks
