The film never really bloats or sags, and remains utterly pleasurable throughout its entire running time.

Galaxy Quest works not just as a parody or a send-up of a type of film. It works as a basic space adventure as well.

Before Tropic Thunder, there came this clever and satisfying spoof of "Star Trek" and its enduing fan phenomenon.

Despite a premise that sounds far from promising, GALAXY QUEST turns out to be an amusing adventure that ofers both good comedy and reasonably exciting science fiction.

While gently spoofing the old Star Trek series and honoring it, Galaxy Quest creates and inhabits its own uniquely lovable universe.

Effects and production design are splendidly integrated into the overall enterprise, which is even more enjoyable for being so unexpected.

A hilarious spoof of Trek and Trek fandom. While Galaxy Quest could have easily taken potshots at geeks, rather the film acts as more of a celebration of these sometimes misguided devotees.

It's hip, it's funny and it is one of the better ensemble efforts -- both in front and behind the camera. I had a fun time.

Looking Closer
December 6, 2004
A frivolous but funny comedy with great special effects and admirable performances. This should become a lasting classic, even for people who don't watch Star Trek, which it so cleverly spoofs.

Neil Smith
December 10, 2003
A sparkling blend of sci-fi and comedy that affectionately spoofs every Star Trek cliché known to man, Romulan, or Klingon.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Relentlessly pokes fun at the rabid fans of sci-fi geekdom and the has-been actors that they deify . . . yet gives the geeks and has-beens get a chance to become real heroes

Even if you've never seen a Gene Roddenberry creation, it's still a hoot.

December 2, 2002
There are genuinely imaginative special effects which manage to be recognisably in the spirit of the cheesy originals.

Star Trek spoof boldly mocks where no one has mocked before.

An irresistibly silly, fluffy, giddy bit of fun.

James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette

More frequently than not, however, the screenplay by David Howard and Robert Gordon opts for safe and bland over satiric, leaving us with a movie that's watchable but frustrating since it's so rife with unexplored potential.

The idea of actors being mistaken for their roles was used in "The Three Amigos," but "Galaxy Quest" mines the comic potential better.
