The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
When the earth is destroyed, two survivors thumb their way around the galaxy. I like films that poke fun at the human condition, and this one does it well. Just the premise that the earth has been destroyed to make way for a galactic bypass, is great! Towels as weapons, alien soldiers that can't shoot straight and a terminally depressed robot, all make for a silly romp through the galaxy. The cast is outstanding, and that wry, British humor, works for me. Though a little too long, this was a fun ride.
