Storyline

Eccentric private eye Dirk Gently uses 'holistic' methods, believing everything in the universe to be connected. When hired to trace elderly Ruth's missing cat, Dirk, with down-trodden sidekick MacDuff, investigates a warehouse, which houses a strange contraption, which blows up. A connection is made to a missing billionaire, Gordon Way, who has been besotted with MacDuff's girlfriend Susan for over a decade. Dirk connects the dates when Ruth acquired her cat and when Susan threw over Way to solve a puzzle involving time travel and homicide, accounting for the missing cat and billionaire as well as the disappearance of Ruth's husband.

Trivia

The actual 'Schödinger's Cat' is of course merely a thought experiment, and its premise involves specifically that the box is NOT opened. See more »

Goofs

The paw prints in the warehouse are wrong. Like most four legged animals, cats step on their fore paw prints with their back paws. See more »

Pretty good
20 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I've been a long time fan of all things Adamsy, slightly disappointed with the movie version of HGTTG, somehow i expected it to be better than the TV series in relation to the extra amount spent, so i was wondering what they'd done with this.

I already knew this was going to follow the characters but not the actual story line of the book.

In the end i thought they pulled it off pretty well. Mangan is well cast as Dirk, it's all rather quirky, Dirk comes across as a total charlatan just as i imagined him from the books.

I wonder if they'll make a series? I hope so. Keep it short so you don't run out of ideas and lets hope they make a better job of trying to recreate Douglas sense of humour than Eoin Colfer did with 'And Another Thing'
