    I’m only a moderate geek (haven’t read the books yet) and have never smoked pot. I am a pretty picky/critical film viewer. James and I saw the film last night and I loved it!! I’m sure being married to an Englishman helped – it enhanced my ability to appreciate the English humour.

Anyway, I’m not sure that the reviewer quoted appreciates how many people are aware of these books & at least know some of the major points (like the meaning of LTU&E).
