ConsN/A

I had taken a day off work sick and I was lying on the sofa feeling sorry for myself. Trying to find something decent to watch as I have slightly exhausted most of the horror films on Sky Movies, I came across Galaxy Quest. I have watched it many times before but it has always been a film I can...

Modern day: It's twenty years after the original "Galaxy Quest" last aired on TV, and now the actors of the Sci Fi show are reduced to signing autographs for sniveling, costume-donning teens at conventions. But one day, their lives are turned around as Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen), the egotisical...

“It's out of this world”

published 11/08/2009

ProFunny; great story and acting; family film

Consnone

This is one of my all time favourite comedy films, not mentioning the fact that it also has a couple of my favourite actors, Tim Allen and Alan Rickman. It is a Science Fiction/ comedy family film released in 1999 and I think it's meant to be a bit of a spoof on 'Star Trek'. The plot is like a...

ConsNone that I can see! :)

I'm back and in a great mood because I passed 3 very difficult exams and I thought I'd do a review on a film that makes me howl with laughter every time I watch it!! Well, me being me I have to start of with somebody elses opinion! (Hey at the moment you've only got my word that it's good, you...

Progreat cast, very cleverly done

Consbit slow at the start, not as funny as it could be

I saw this film first in L.A in January and with the hype that was around it over there at the time, I expected to enjoy it. I did, but dont expect it to be a comedy where you laugh every minute. It's a spoof film of the highest calibre with lots of in-jokes for followers of Star Trek and the...

ConsMade mainly for kids but gained an adult market

Somewhere in outer space, god knows how far away a civilisation may be watching TV shows that were broadcast years ago from here. It could well be that this far away civilisation looks at programs such as Star Trek and thinks they are real. They might think us able to produce this superior...

“Make it so funny”

published 30/04/2001

ProA very funny spoof

ConsNone

I don't think I have enjoyed a film more this year than Galaxy Quest. The premise is a great spoof and I'm surprised it wasn't thought up before this 1999 film. Tim Allen is Jason Nesmith. A washed up actor who played the commander of a space ship in a long since finished Sci Fi series. He earns...

ConsSigourney is a tad too blond

I am married to a Trek Geek. For example, at Christmas, I know I'm golden if I get him a Starship Enterprise Lamp (from the "Wireless" catalog) or a Star Trek watch that plays the theme song as the Enterprise spins around its face. But, he can laugh at himself, too. Which is good, because I can...

ConsNone to speak of

Right then, I'm a Star Trek fan, always have been, and I'm pig sick of the lame, dull and usually inaccurate spoofs of the series which seem to have infested every satirical TV show for the past ten to twenty years. In general, these consist of three half-witted comedy actors in ill-fitting blue...

Promade me giggle!

Consnothing

Jason Nesmith (Tim Allen) and his fellow crewmembers are well aware of how far fans of cult sci-fi TV will go to worship their favourites, as they’ve spent nearly two decades living off the fanaticism of followers of their long-since cancelled television show Galaxy Quest. Little did they...

“Spoof Trek”

published 17/11/2001

ProGreat laughs and thrills

ConsSome Trekkies will like it

Never give up, never surrender… Sigourney Weaver ...Tim Allen...Alan Rickman...boldly going where no one fears to tread...truly scrumptious, the funniest space comedy of all time...well, better than Mel Brooks' Spaceballs, anyway (but that wasn't exactly hard, now was it?) Let's not play it down...

ConsNo commentary - boo!

I make no apologies for what I am going to rave about. Galaxy Quest is one of the funniest films ever made and I love it to bits. If you are a fan of Science fiction in general, and Star Trek in particular, then you will love this movie. Even if you are not but just enjoy a good comedy then this...

“Spot on Star Trek send up”

published 03/01/2001

ProAmusing, well-acted spoof

ConsMore enjoyable for sci-fi lovers

I have to admit usually I'm not one for spoofs... you only have to look through the plethora of miserable examples to see they are very rarely well done... Leslie Nielsen has a lot to answer for!! They usually end up as a poorly linked sequence of amusing moments that are all in the trailer...

“Galaxy Quest - What a film!”

published 15/07/2000

ProFunny and entertaining

ConsNon really

This has got to be one of the best comedies around at the moment. It details the adventures of a group of 'has been' actors who were once famous for their screen exploits in a Star Trek type series called 'Galaxy Quest' as they inadvertently become whisked away on a real intergalactic adventure...

Product Information : Galaxy Quest (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

GALAXY QUEST is a satirical comedy that pokes fun at the influence science fiction shows such as STAR TREK have had on their audience. The cast members of the cult sci-fi television series GALAXY QUEST now earn their livings appearing at conventions and grand openings, led by their bomastic captain Jason Nesmith, played by Tim Allen. When an alien race--the Thermians--arrives on earth, it appears that they have mistakenly appropriated the show's culture as their own, thinking the series was actual fact. Desperate for help in battling the evil General Sarris, they bring the actors with them into space to save their planet. A surprisingly smart and funny send-up of the science-fiction culture and the influence television has on the world at large, GALAXY QUEST is a comedy that even non-genre fans can enjoy, with terrific turns by Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, and Tony Shalhoub.
