Movie Review: Galaxy Quest

Story: All right, I confess! I am a Star Trek nut. I love all of the Star Trek incarnations: the original, the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine and even Voyager. Oh, to have only known a star ship Captain. Hats off to Captain's Kirk, Picard, Sisko and Janeway - I salute you all and as a tribute I went to see Galaxy Quest. A satire based on the sci-fi convention phenomenon where the 'cast' gets pulled into real deep space to perform their magic as on TV. Matter, anti-matter, it doesn't matter...it is just plain funny. If you like Star Trek, space anomalies, worm holes, black holes, M-class planets and replicated food, this film is for you. Go see it at Warp speed.

Acting: Who cares? It was just silly fun. Tim Allen, Sigorney Weaver (spoofing her other outer space films) Alan Rickman (always delicious) and a cast of other fun creatures, nerds and hangers on.

Pets: None

Visual Art: None-but lots of good outer space landscapes.

Sappy Factor: 3

Quirky Meter: 0

Soundtrack: I don't remember

Length: Way under the 2 hour rule.
