With a great cast and clever premise, Galaxy Quest is the rare spoof that's actually funny.

Galaxy Quest is a fun movie. Its humor makes it a great comedy and it is filled with action. The cast is also terrific. It remains entertaining even after watching it a few times. (First viewing - Early 2000 in theaters)

4/22/2017 (2): A decent movie. Not many laugh out loud moments, but still entertaining with a great cast.

A very enjoyable Star Trek "parody" that's better than any Star Trek movie

Good spoof of Star Trek. Tim Allen, who despite being so likable always seems to end up in mediocre movies, finally finds himself with a script to suit him.

Tim Allen's comedy is the best!

Whether your a Star Trek fan or not, Galaxy Quest is a fun, hilarious and boisterously magnetic sci-fi spoof that pays homage while also standing alone as it's own smart film.

Very funny, very good movie. 3 1/2 stars. Sigourney Weaver steals the show.

Great movie. Has a family feel to me. For an older movie it's a great movie. Super cool acting and even better story!!

Really fun send up of both Trek and washed up genre actors. Has fun with the subjects without ridiculing them. Good times.

It's a winner. Even 17 years later, this movie is still funny and worth watching. The CGI's slightly dated look is just right for the nature of this satire. The comic timing of every actor is close to perfect.

Not really that funny. It is more of a coming of age story. The story is pretty good and concentrates nicely on each character. The characters do a really good job. It was good to see Alan Rickman. Overall it was a decent movie.

It's really dumb, but it's also really clever. It's cheesy as can be, but so likable. I went in expecting to just groan the whole time (I did for the first third), but by the last third, I was enjoying myself thoroughly. It's not a masterpiece, but it's really fun.

What a perfect way to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of Star Trek! This looked cheesy, and the premise (actors roped into an intergalactic adventure) seemed worthy of Ed Wood... but I'd heard it has a cult following, so when it popped up on Netflix I gave it a chance.

It's actually a pretty adorable parody of Star Trek in which washed up actors playing the fan club circuit do get roped into an adventure - but much of the wit comes from the unlikely circumstances through which everything plays out just like an episode of Star Trek - and the spectrum of reactions that the actors have toward this.

It's entirely unlike "Spaceballs". In that movie, Mel Brooks just used Star Wars as a canvas on which to put his shtick. Galaxy Quest is done from the inside - it was clearly written by big Star Trek fans who simultaneously love the show while being acutely aware of its absurdities, and who have a similar love and amusement for the Trekkies who take their love of the show a little too far.

This has been on my list of movies I've been meaning to see for years, and I'm so glad I finally pulled the trigger on it. It is a brilliantly meta send-up on sci-fi tropes and conventions. But it's also a lovely and heartwarming story about people stepping up and reluctantly becoming the heroes they were only pretending to be. Now I wish this would've become a franchise. Ahead of its time,and more relevant than ever.

It gets better as time goes on.

As ridiculous as this movie is it is still one that I find incredibly enjoyable every time that I watch it. It brilliantly spoofs Star Trek and convention culture while at the same time offering a decent sci-fi space exploration story. I found this to be very fun and I can't recommend it enough.
