Kevin, the short short was interesting; but seemed more akin (and a prelude to) I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream ('67) than to the HHGTTG entry. The HHGTTG bit was a polar opposite. As a fan I loved the film; but have to admit it didn't fire on all cylinders. Still, as I've said before, the movie and DVD would have been worth it just for the sing-a-long! I think the part that bothers me the most is the early scenes involving Arthur and Ford getting onto the Vogon ship. In fact, after repeated viewings, I've come to the opinion that the Mos Def character is a weak link - didn't pull his share of the humor. On the other hand I think Rockwell nailed it. And David, thanks for explaining "FAN recommeded"; I didn't know what you meant and it was driving me nuts.
