Rediscovering DNA

Rediscovering DNA.

Whether or not the film "does justice" to the Hitchhiker's series is immeasurable and irrelevant. Immeasurable because the story itself has changed with every medium its been presented in, and will likely do so once more (Adams himself stated that the screenplay would definitely include things not found in the books). Besides which, given the fact that Adams chronically hated most of what he'd written as soon as it was finished, he likely would have had some dissatisfaction with the film regardless of the result. But more importantly, it's an irrelevant question because the film affords a much greater opportunity to revisit the works and life of Douglas Adams and discover him anew.
