Comments: Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy -- The Movie

The thing that struck me about the "Hollywood ending" was that it sort of shoots the possibility of a faithful-to-the-books sequel in the foot. I mean, how much of the subsequent action revolves around the fact that Trillian and Zaphod have this love-hate thing going on?

How was Trillian half-alien? Somehow I completely missed that, in any incarnation of the story . . .

I read the making of the movie book (a review of which I'll post here later today), and the director gave that one away. It makes sense, because otherwise the mice could use Trillian's brain. I missed the plot point in the move, and I've seen it twice now. If it was in the movie, they hid it well enough that nobody got it.

One of the commentors over at Cinema Veritas said that Disney had planned on making at least one more Hitchhiker's movie. I agree, much of the rest of the series is messed up with the Trillian/Zaphod thing gone. Unless Trillian realizes what a total kneebiter Arthur is ...
