HHGtG: To go or not to go

I was really looking forward to going to see Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when it opens in a couple of weeks. But after reading parts of this review (warning: massive spoilers, non-spoiler version here), I'm not so sure I want to bother with it now.

I really wasn't expecting much out of it anyway, since 99% of what makes HHGtG so funny is the small dialogue and obscure British humour that's likely to get cut in any movie adaptation.

Rats...now I wish I hadn't packed up my big HHGtG Trilogy in Five Parts compilation...I'll have to wait until it gets unpacked before I can start reading it again.
