Galaxy Quest Reviews

January 1, 2000
It's a film that falls far short of its potential and, during its dull moments, you can't help contemplating its assorted missed opportunities.
January 1, 2000
Six hilariously-scripted parts, but they run out of laugh material long before the movie ends, and Galaxy Quest must then limp to the closing credits supported by its actual plot, which is stupider than anything Star Trek ever devised.

It's a clever premise but not one that lends itself to an hour and 42 minutes of high jinks.
January 1, 2000
It has fun with the characters, the dilemmas, the imagery, and source of inspiration. Without genuine depth, however, the film will have a hard time reeling in a widespread audience.

January 1, 2000
The big ideas fall short too often.
January 1, 2000
Each actor plays an actor playing the sci-fi characters. It's a bit difficult to keep track of who's who, and ultimately the characters are so underdeveloped it's even more difficult to care.
January 1, 2000
The premise is the best thing about the movie, but it's such a dandy premise that it is almost enough.

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.

Quest skirts dangerously close to being the thing it parodies: a second-rate space opera.

The movie's humor works best when the illogic of the TV show gets in the way.

In many ways, Galaxy Quest is more fantasy than science fiction. It's a lighthearted romp.

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

January 1, 2000
Sly, good-natured and fun, despite the presence of Tim Allen.

January 1, 2000
With dry, understated wit and an attitude that is giddy without being sophomoric, Galaxy Quest succeeds in being one of the more enjoyable comedies of the season.

January 1, 2000
It is impressive that director Dean Parisot kept the chuckles coming as long as he did. This is a one-viewing film, but pleasant enough.
