    As a fan of the book, the radio and the TV version will the new film be worth watching or will it be a let down because it's just "another remake"

    see trailer here

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Maybe it'll be better than the first attempt, but I don't like what they've done with Zaphod's head, and nor do I appreciate Marvin's new look.

    They probably thought that if they could destroy everything that was funny about coupling so well, then the office could do with a bash as well.

    I never got why they had to do remakes of them anyway, do they not understand english english?

    I think it had something to do with the English humor. It is hard for an English comic to make it here and those that have all say that it's not easy to adjust.

    That said i strongly believe that the powers that be in the entertainment industry don't give Americans credit for "getting it"

    If they got Monty Python and Fawlty Towers I think they would get most things - well maybe League of Gentlemen might be pushing the envelope but even then ...

    Remakes rarely work, but Douglas Adams was heavily involved in the movie so I will give it a whirl.
