The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)

Arthur Dent is a very ordinary man who is having a truly unusual day -- after discovering that one of his best friends, Ford Prefect, is actually an alien, Ford tells him that the planet Earth is going to be destroyed so that otherworldly forces can make room for construction of a hyperspace bypass. Since Arthur accidentally saved Ford's life years ago, Ford does him a favor -- he first gets him a ride on a spaceship passing by, and then presents him with a guidebook that will tell a beginner everything he needs to know as he hitchhikes through outer space. Along the way, Arthur encounters such interstellar notables as sleazy Galaxy president Zaphod Beebelbrox, the girl of his dreams Tricia McMillan, perpetually glum robot Marvin, interplanetary construction magnate Slartibartfast, and cult leader Humma Kavula.
