This review is from: Galaxy Quest (VHS Tape)
Don't be put off by the sci-fi element, this film stands on its own as a good comedy film. The basic plot revolves around a group of aliens mistaking transmissions of a sci-fi tv show, Galaxy Quest, for 'historical documents'. Which on its own sounds sort of mildly amusing but the script works hard with so many bits of humour from incidents that happen, the various characters and the dialogue, it is well worth seeing. All the actors and characters are spot-on. Favourites include Guy (played by Sam Rockwell), a hanger-on actor who becomes confused between reality and his ill-fated, bit-part role in the tv show, and Tim Allen is excellent as leading actor Jason Nesbitt, particularly funny at the start where he hasn't clicked what's going on yet. Good comedy - worth seeing.
