Absolutely concur. As a huge fan of the books, the movie put me in a shitty mood for the rest of the day. It felt like the people who made it had never read the books, but looked at the script and said 'oh, so it's like Monty Python then?' So what we get is a bunch of wacky goofy slide-whistle-sound-effect-grade moments with none of the wit or intelligence of the radio shows or books or computer game or tv show. Goddammit.
