    "I've suffered for my art, now its your turn." So begins the tale of Ted Wallace, known (unaffectionately) as the Hippopotamus. Failed poet, failed theater critic, failed father and husband, Ted has his faults too: he is a shameless womanizer, drinks too much, and is at odds in his cranky but maddeningly logical way with most of modern life.4/5(16). The Hippopotamus is not a great film, i won't lie to you. It was a bad choice to pick this particular novel for the adaptation, because the story isn't really interesting and there aren't enough memorably moments, no great face-offs. The book itself was never meant to be a mystery thriller, but rather, a book of poems written in novel form.
