This review is from: Galaxy Quest [DVD]  (DVD)
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.
