Duration: 1 hour, 50 minutes

Movie adaptation of Douglas Adams's cult sci-fi comedy novel. Arthur Dent escapes the destruction of the Earth - to make way for a new galactic hyper-space bypass – with the aid of his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher for the Hitchhiker's Guide. With the dubious aid of the Guide, a galactic President with short-term memory loss (in both his heads) and a depressed robot, Arthur embarks on an improbable journey through the universe in search of the meaning of life and a really good cup of tea.
