About this movie

For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA protector - "Commander Peter Quincy Taggart" (Tim Allen), "Lt. Tawny Madison" (Sigourney Weaver) and "Dr.Lazarus" (Alan Rickman) - set off on a thrilling and often dangerous mission in space...and then their series was cancelled! Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beam up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives.

Massively funny from start to finish. It's a joy to watch Tim Allen channeling Captain Kirk's charisma while Alan Rickman (R.I.P.) steals every scene he's in and the rest of the cast are excellent with everyone having a shining moment. Superb special effects that still stand up today and a touching, heartfelt story that's perfectly handled from filmmakers who clearly love all things Star Trek and sci-fi movies.

Bloody good film. If your a Trekkie this is a loving, tongue firmly in cheek homage to the original STAR TREK. Great cast with a good plot with plenty of knowing nods to Trek, that will make you grin or LOL. One for all the family, highly recommended!!!!!!!
