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

The drolleries take precedence over the special effects.
January 1, 2000
A sweet-spirited and clever film for anyone who's ever been a sci-fi nerd -- or laughed at one.
January 1, 2000
An amiable comedy that simultaneously manages to spoof these popular futuristic space adventures and replicate the very elements that have made them so durable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
January 1, 2000
The premise is the best thing about the movie, but it's such a dandy premise that it is almost enough.
January 1, 2000
For fans of science fiction Galaxy Quest is a sweet, funny valentine to their obsessiveness.
January 1, 2000
A Star Trek spoof with an intelligence that's Vulcan and a wit that could make a Klingon grin.

A lot of wacky fun.

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

It'll beam you way, way up.
January 1, 2000
Fast, light and funny, Galaxy Quest has a wide, generation - spanning appeal -- and you don't have to be a die-hard Trekkie to enjoy it.

The movie's cast is delightful.
January 1, 2000
It's a clever premise but not one that lends itself to an hour and 42 minutes of high jinks.
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
In many ways, Galaxy Quest is more fantasy than science fiction. It's a lighthearted romp.

January 1, 2000
This movie is more than one joke or one idea. It's a thoroughly satisfying comedy -- and a respectable space adventure, as well.

January 1, 2000
The film's warm-fuzzies are formulaic and not at all genuine. The humor, though, is clever and keenly satiric without being mean-spirited.
January 1, 2000
The movie's humor works best when the illogic of the TV show gets in the way.

More ingratiating than uproarious, Galaxy Quest nonetheless emerges as one of the holiday movie season's more pleasant surprises.
January 1, 2000
Galaxy Quest has both a story and a back story, which is rare for this kind of romp.
