Decades after the success of the sci-fi series "Galaxy Quest," the show's washed-up stars -- Jason Nesmith, Gwen DeMarco and Alexander Dane -- are unwittingly recruited by actual aliens to pull off an intergalactic rescue mission.
Both a knowing parody of a particular television show and a rousing science fiction epic in its own right, Dean Parisot's "Galaxy Quest" is much more than a one-note send-up. Lovingly skewering "Star Trek" while cutting its own entertaining path, the film is an ideally cast, solidly assembled comic spectacle with its heart and brain it the right place. It is an exciting, funny, and outstandingly entertaining piece of work that rates among 1999's best films.
Revolving around the cast of a sci-fi television program from the 1980s, "Galaxy Quest" finds the group of actors whisked into outer space by an alien people in need of help. Having seen the broadcast of the TV show, and assuming it to be…

"This episode was badly written!"
I've seen Galaxy Quest countless times from when I was 12 to the present day and I still absolutely love it. Whether it genuinely "holds up" or whether I've simply got Nostalgia Goggles for it isn't something I can honestly answer because I'm too caught up in my fondness for it. I recognize it doesn't work for everyone, but it works wonders for me. I know all the jokes by now but they still make me laugh; I know all the conflicts by now but they still make me cry. I've never seen a parody with so much heart, so willing to always take its silly premise seriously and ground itself in real characters. There…

I’ve been avoiding this one for years. The combination of Tim Allen and memories of Spaceballs didn’t make me want to run to the DVD rental shop despite knowing the Star Trek theme. What changed was seeing favourable ratings pop up from time to time in my stream here on LB. I was still suspicious, as there are many people who love Spaceballs, so I broke my rule and read some reviews. Well, it seemed like an interesting premise, so I stuck it in my watchlist. No way my Star Trek averse wife was going to watch, so it would have to be held for a solo night. Well, the opportunity arose tonight.
The execution of the first act was…
One of the most ridiculously awesome films ever made. It's impossible to talk seriously about this because it's just so damn fun to watch.
You've got a hilarious script, parodies of nearly every sci-fi trope in existence and the cast...well, it's Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell and Tim Allen turning everything up to about 100 and then running away with it.
How can anyone say that they don't like this?
The last great satire film of the 20th century (in fact it's one of the last films of the 20th century period) with excellent writing, hilarious setup, top notch performances, and making fun of Star Trek while also simultaneously paying tribute to it and its fans. Even though the villain is weak. It's still an entertaining film and the thermians make me laugh every time.
my first star trek movie

By Grabthars Hammer this is a bloody great film...
Was für ein fantastischer Cast !

This was a heart-warming romp and I loved it.
Perfect parady of the Star Trek series/fandom
Perfect cult movie
Best cast ever:
TONY SHALHOUB (MONK)
RAINN WILSON (DWIGHT)
"I know! You construct a weapon, look around you. Can you form some sort of rudimentary lathe?"
One of those Hollywood oddities from 1999 like The Mummy, The Iron Giant, The Sixth Sense and 10 Things I Hate About You which seemed to have no business being as fun and well-crafted as they were. Literally everyone's terrific, with Rickman (RIP), Shahloub, and the then-unknown Rockwell stealing the show. And the persistent efficiency with which screenwriters Howard and Gordon turn every bit of exposition into an effective joke is mind-boggling.
Pretty self-explanatory question, but one I find very interesting.
