Mere seconds before the Earth is to be demolished by an alien construction crew, journeyman Arthur Dent is swept off the planet by his friend Ford Prefect, a researcher penning a new edition of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."
Private Joe Bauers, the definition of "average American", is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes five centuries in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed down that he's easily the most intelligent person alive.
When a meteorite falls to Earth two college professors, Dr. Ira Kane and Prof. Harry Phineas Block, are assigned the job of checking the site out. At the site, they discover organisms not of this planet. Soon the site is taken over by the government, forcing Ira and Harry to the side. As the new life-forms begin to evolve and start to get more and more dangerous, it's up to the two professors to save the planet. Written by

Okay, this may surprise you, but, this film is way better than every one says it is. It's hilarious. It is kind of like Ghostbusters, well its alot like Ghostbusters, but who didn't like that one? I'm sick and tired of movies going down thanks to bad reviews, hint hint look around at some of these. People, if you've read this far it may already be too late to catch the next showing of EVOLUTION however go see it asap. Dan Aykroyd alone is worth seeing in this flick. In my opinion this is one of the best of the year.
