Div Com + Douglas Adams
I saw The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie yesterday. It was very entertaining. A couple of things I didn't realize: (1) this is a Disney film. All the trailers prior to the film correspond to Disney's summer schedule; (2) The music for the film is composed by Joby Talbot, yes THE Joby Talbot of the Irish band, the Divine Comedy. The band's lead singer, Neil Hannon, sings the song at the end credits. Its funny hearing them on a mainstream picture. The film itself was decent, although the humour is arguably dated.
