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.

From Amazon.co.uk

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 The Thermians are counting on it, having studied the "historical documents" of the Galaxy Quest TV show, and their hero worship (not to mention their taste for Monte Cristo sandwiches) is ultimately proven worthy, with the help of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, Amazon.com

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. The helm controls work exactly as they appeared to do in the series, the weapons arrays are fired by the same buttons, etc.

By Martin Turner HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Aug. 2004
Format: DVD
This is the only film I've ever paid for on pay-per-view. That's after I saw it in the cinema and before I bought it on DVD. If you've read the Amazon review above then you'll more or less know what it's about. It's something of a spoof on the reinvention of Star Trek which took place decades after the original show was cancelled. It's also an amazing film in its own right.
This begins with the casting: Tim Allen comes with all the comedy credentials to make this film fly, but the inclusion of SF icon Sigourney Weaver makes it more of an A-movie than any of the films or series it spoofs. Then there's veteran thespian Alan Rickman, who could raise the level of any production. (Interestingly, one of Alan Rickman's early TV credits was as Brownlow in Smiley's People, which also featured a certain Patrick Stewart as Karla).
Sigourney Weaver! Interestingly, Weaver went on record during the making of this film as saying 'I put on a blonde wig and didn't say an intelligent thing for six months'.
You should have gathered that this is not the usual Spaceballs/ Airplane 3/ Men in White type of sci-fi spoof. Although it accurately satirises the conventions of Star Trek (as well as Star Trek conventions), it has its own first rate special effects and a plot that would stand up just as well if it was played as a straight, if rather quirky, SF adventure.
This is a film that everyone could be proud of, including the people who were being satirised. Interestingly, Jeri Ryan (Seven-of-nine, Voyager) makes a point of including a couple of photos of her at the Galaxy Quest premiere on her fansite.
Is it worth buying? Well, it's more or less the most played and most borrowed DVD in my collection. This film is simply, so good ...

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 15 Sept. 2003
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. The other characters are also great: the fairly weird Fred Kwan (Tony Shalhoub) who plays Tech.
