Ho ho! Looks like Douglas Adams was right after all.

Looks like we didn't have to wait until May 6th, 2005 to see The End of the World on the big screen.
My impressions—good. Sure, Hollywood had its influence on the final result with a few gratuitous chase scenes, an obligatory rescue scene (solved by quickly filling out the proper forms, which at least was amusing) and a silly love interest, but overall, it kept the flavor of Douglas Adams and visually speaking, was incredible! Just don't expect a slavish translation from the books (which in turn wasn't a slavish translations of the radio show, and even the TV series parted ways so … ).
Although, I think I prefer the animated sequences from the TV show than the movie (not to say the movie sequences were bad, just not over the top busy as they were in the TV series).
