Earthman Arthur Dent is having a very bad day. His house is about to be bulldozed, he discovers that his best friend is an alien and to top things off, Planet Earth is about to be demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Arthur's only chance for survival: hitch a ride on a passing spacecraft.
For the novice space traveler, the greatest adventure in the universe begins when the world ends.
Arthur sets out on a journey in which he finds that nothing is as it seems: he learns that a towel is just the most useful thing in the universe, finds the meaning of life, and discovers that everything he needs to know can be found in one book: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
I love Hitchhikers! It was absoloutley hilarious!
Actually I do understand British humor and I "got" the jokes. Too bad the jokes were not as funny as you vastly superior intellectual Brits thought. As for being about any one President, we could all assign a name of any President we dislike to the President in this movie. The movie is childish and the costumes Muppetlike. The only redeeming quality of the movie was towards the end with the making of the earth. Oh, if only we Americans could be as hip as the Brits. Sigh
