Galaxy Quest

A lighthearted, low-rent lampoon of Star Trek and its cult, this is also a characteristic piece of committeethink from DreamWorks: it wants to leave no base uncovered and therefore tries periodically to reproduce certain Star Trek action thrills without mocking them. Overall it's what it aspires to be—a pleasant time waster. Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, and Alan Rickman are the three leads, but many of the best laughs come from Tony Shalhoub. Directed by Dean Parisot from a screenplay by David Howard and Robert Gordon.
