Well then do try reading the books first, no wonder you had trouble understanding any of it, except the bluddy producers cut and pasted and re-wrote adams screenplay adaption so much that there was nothing to understand, except maybe for the whale and the pot of petunias.

Back in high school, a friend of mine used to make "Black Hole Kits". These were pieces of paper on which he had beautifully pencilled galaxies, stars and planets. Under this he wrote: Instructions: Screw up and crush *well*.

Of course, you won't get it if you don't know about the theories of black holes. The same is true of Douglas Adams' hitchhiker books. The science references are hilarious, if you're into science in the slightest.

The movie, however, messed about with the plot - it always had holes, but now it is completely incomprehensible, taking bits from the different forms and messing them up so none make sense. The jokes have been edited until they are no longer funny and some of the acting stank.
