This is a good and funny movie. While I haven't read any of the books, I found it enjoyable and would recommend it to anybody looking for a quirky and light movie.

While reformatting this blog post, I realized that the latest two television shows star two of the movie's actors: Martin Freeman (Sherlock) and Zooey Deschanel (New Girl). While I have yet to publish blog posts for the shows, I do have a post for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) which stars Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and (500) Days of Summer (2009) which stars Zooey Deschanel as Summer.

DVD Special Features:
"Additional Guide Entry" jokingly proves God does not exist.

There are three deleted scenes.
First deleted scene. Entry for Earth is harmless. Punchline: Now it'll say "mostly harmless."
Second deleted scene. "We're going to win."
Third deleted scene. Zaphod and Questular kiss.

There are two "really deleted scenes"
First really deleted scene. Arthur, Ford, and Zaphod barge in and there's some dialogue which ends in discussion. Being a really deleted scene, I guess this was just for fun and made up.
Second really deleted scene. Lol, this one was ridiculous. They get into the cart, but Arthur beats up Slartibartfast and escapes.

Marvin's Hangman.
I played a round of Marvin's Hangman and got the answer right, losing three body parts. It's a bit difficult, you have to remember what letters you picked. A1 E O2 I L V3 F. Grass scenery.
I decided to play again and the scenery changed. E R1 T2 L3 N4 S5 LOSE. They don't tell you the answer. In space station or space ship.
E1 A2 I3 O [_OO_] K [_OOK] B [BOOK]. Back to grass scenery.
In space. A E1 O2 L3 R S T.
Space again: A1 E I L2 M C

Instant Comments:
Haha, humor in the fact that the fate of the earth is analogous to the fate of Arthur Dent's home.
Haha, Alan Rickman makes a great voice for Marvin.
Return to this place in 7.5 million years.
Yes, but you're not gonna like it.
In the middle of the credits a Guide to the Galaxy tells us an interesting fact.
