Roscoe's rating of the film The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Occasional glimmers of the real Adams magic shine through, particularly in the scenes between Martin Freeman and Bill Nighy. The narrated "Guide" sections are amusing, thanks to Stephen Fry and some witty animation. Alas, the obscene incompetence of Mos Def as Ford Prefect and Sam Rockwell's ill-advised George W. Bush impression are just appalling. A sadly missed opportunity.
