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…
By Grabthar's Hammer, by the Suns of Warvan, you shall be avenged. RIP sir.
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…
Does Tim Allen go to Home Improvement conventions?
"Could they be the miners?"
"Sure, they're like three years old."
"MINERS, not MINORS."
"You lost me."
A perfect Star Trek homage. The storytelling has more intelligence and cleverness to it than most of the actual Trek movies.
Thank God for Tony Shalhoub and his gift for hilarious indifference.
The best Star Trek movie ever made. As a satire it makes Spaceballs look like Scary Movie. The best film with Tim Allen in it by a country mile. The accolades will never stop pouring from my mouth like rich nectar.
By Grabthar's hammer... what a savings!
I've never seen a Star Trek episode, but I'm familiar with it. But even without that prior info, I could tell that Galaxy Quest was the best kind of satire - one that pokes fun at its subject without flat-out insulting it. It still respects the subject matter. And on a comedy level, this movie was really funnier than I expected. There are a couple plot flaws, but overall I'd say Galaxy Quest is successful in its hilarious tribute to Star Trek.
a nice wholesome film that reminds me that life is good. i miss alan rickman. anyways 1999 was the best year of cinema hands down period thank you and goodnight
This movie is Art.
This is seriously, one of the best Satires of all time. It's so funny, so clever, deconstructs Star Trek and other sci-fi elements.
Tim Allen is great as the Commander. An egotistical washed up actor. He sells it so well.
"WHAT ARE YOU AN INFANT?!"
Alan Rickman is FANTASTIC as this pathetic, depressed serious actor whose sick of playing this character. It only works if you get a serious actor like Alan Rickman because it would have the same effect if a comedian like Mike Myers or someone played the role. He's hilarious
"By Grabthar's hammer....what a savings."
Sigourney Weaver also great and funny. Tony Shaloub is also hilarious as he just accepts everything that is happening. (I once…
