Product Description

Product Description

The alumni cast of a cult space TV show have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help.


You don't have to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy Galaxy Quest, but it certainly helps. A knowingly affectionate tribute to Trek and any other science fiction TV series of the 1960s and beyond, this crowd-pleasing comedy offers in-jokes at warp speed, hitting the bull's-eye for anyone who knows that: (1) the starship captain always removes his shirt to display his manly physique; (2) any crew member not in the regular cast is dead meat; and (3) the heroes always stop the doomsday clock with one second to spare. So it is with Commander Taggart (Tim Allen) and the stalwart crew of the NSEA Protector, whose intergalactic exploits on TV have now been reduced to a dreary cycle of fan conventions and promotional appearances. That's when the Thermians arrive, begging to be saved from Sarris, the reptilian villain who threatens to destroy their home planet.

Can actors rise to the challenge and play their roles for real? The Thermians are counting on it, having studied the "historical documents" of the Galaxy Quest TV show, and their hero worship (not to mention their taste for Monte Cristo sandwiches) is ultimately proven worthy, with the help of some Galaxy geeks on planet Earth. And while Galaxy Quest serves up great special effects and impressive Stan Winston creatures, director Dean Parisot (Home Fries) is never condescending, lending warm acceptance to this gentle send-up of sci-fi TV and the phenomenon of fandom. Best of all is the splendid cast, including Sigourney Weaver as buxom blonde Gwen DeMarco; Alan Rickman as frustrated thespian Alexander Dane; Tony Shalhoub as dimwit Fred Kwan; Daryl Mitchell as former child-star Tommy Webber; and Enrico Colantoni as Thermian leader Mathesar, whose sing-song voice is a comedic coup de grâce. --Jeff Shannon,

What a surprisingly good film! Sci-fi stories, by their very nature are difficult to make into successful comedies but this is a rare example of how to do it perfectly.
This film is a genuine masterpiece. It sends up shows like Star Trek and Babylon 5 very cleverly without ever deteriorating into clumsy, high school camp parody.
Everyone has seen some Star Trek episodes at some time in their lives and this helps with the in-jokes.
Tim Allen plays a character that William Shatner will recognise, probably with some slight discomfort. The rest of the crew are top notch also, especially Alan " I am an ac-torrrr" Rickman and Sigourney Weaver who looked stunning.
The basic premise is that the cast of a long cancelled sci-fi romp series, Galaxy Quest, are reduced to appearing at fan conventions for a living. They feel degraded, bored and dislike each other and their persistant fans in varying degrees. Except "Commander Taggart" whose egotism allows him to revel in the attention these conventions bring the main star.
However, all things change when some typically quirky fans turn out to be Thermians who need the Galaxy Quest crew to help turn the tide in a cosmic war that they are losing to a lizard race. Having picked up the TV transmissions and thinking them to be documentaries, the Thermians re-create the ship of the series for real and take the disbelieving cast up to crew it.
Finally realising the predicament they are in, the cast try to get away except "Taggart" whose ego knows he can do it for real. The crew finally have no choice but to go along with it. The Thermians have painstakingly recreated the ship in every detail from the series.

Format: DVD
I've never really been a fan of Tim Allen or Sigourney Weaver, so I put off watching this movie for a good while. I kept hearing and reading about how funny it was, though, so I finally gave in and watched it. The stories I heard are true because this is really an excellent comedy. I myself have some natural tendencies toward the type of TV show fans being lampooned in jest here, but we geeks have an amazing quality of laughing at ourselves when what we are seeing is genuinely funny. The idea is actually just short of brilliant; take the cast of a Star Trek-like science-fiction show cancelled twenty years ago and put them in a situation wherein they have to become the characters they played in order to save themselves and an entire civilization. The script is excellent, introducing great characterizations of the characters early on, keeping the action and comedy coming fast and furious, and maintaining the comedy at a witty and fresh level.
Tim Allen plays Jason Nesmith who plays Commander Peter Quincy Taggart, an obviously Shatner-inspired character who continues to hog all of the spotlight garnered from the old Galaxy Quest series, not realizing that his fellow cast members hold him in some disdain for his egomaniacal antics. A surprisingly blonde and very funny Sigourney Weaver plays Gwen DeMarcol who plays Lt. Tawny Madison, and she has always been unhappy about the fact her character on the show was never taken seriously. Then there is Alan Rickman's character Alexander Dane who plays the reptilian-human Dr. Lazarus; this formerly successful British "real actor" despises his rubber-headed character and constantly laments the depths to which his previously distinguished career has sunk.

Format: DVD
This is a hilarious, clever movie which sends up popular Sci Fi TV series such as Star Trek, and especially the kind of die hard fans that such series attract. However, although it is poking fun, it does so gently and with affection.

The basic storyline is that a group of slightly over the hill actors from a famous Sci Fi show find themselves in deep trouble when a group of fans they meet turn out to be aliens from another planet who have been watching the series from space and think it is a "historical document". They need help from the actors to battle an evil alien lord, and they must do their best not to completely muck it up, all whilst bickering amongst themselves and dealing with their other fans.

What makes this film so good is that it is spot on with its little details. Anyone who has seen any Star Trek will recognise Shatner in Tim Allens character, and Alan Rickman is a "real" English actor who is frustrated by his side kick role (which is blatantly a Spock tribute). Having Sigourney Weaver play the on-board eye candy was also a stroke of genius ("Well forget it! I'm not doing it! This episode was badly written!"). The dialogue is really funny, and there is a laugh a minute - you will be quoting it long after the movie is over.

Ultimately though, this is a feel good movie about beating the bad guys, and the geeks certainly do triumph in the end. If you have ever watched any kind of Sci Fi TV show and enjoyed it, watch this immediately!

I'd hardly heard of this movie and came across it very indirectly. It deserves to be much better known; it's streets ahead of the only intermittently funny Spaceballs type stuff. I guess you'd need to like SF movies to really go for it, and a nodding acquaintance with Star Trek would help. It's very funny and oddly large-hearted too; all the kitschy Star Trek platitudes turn out somehow to be true and valuable without the movie getting sentimental or kitschy itself. It's some trick. Characteristic is the line from Sigourney Weaver, something like: "I've only got one stupid job to do on the ship and by God I'm going to do it!". It _is_ stupid; but she really does mean to do it; and it turns out to matter that she does it, too.
