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 thrilling and often dangerous missions in space… and then their series was canceled!
Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beamed up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe.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 in this hilarious adventure Jeffrey Lyons (NBC-TV) calls "The funniest, wittiest comedy of the year."

Your Opinions and Comments
The movie is some sort of a parody about sci-fi movies, but it deals with the subject from a refreshingly new direction.
The acting is hilariously good and all the cast are doing a good job.
The video transfer is great. The picture is always clear and no compression marks are evident. The special effects are really nice. Some are ludicrous (intentionally) and some are really impressive.
The DD 5.1 soundtrack is really impressive. Other than the fact that it will make your house shake, it`ll enable you to hear the nuances of the speech, which is really good.
The menus are VERY nice - animated and with cool sounds.
The extras include a nice behind the scenes featurette, some deleted scenes, the usual filmographies and a hilarious Thermian soundtrack (DO listen to parts of it at least once).
Bottom line - an awesome comedy, not only for sci-fi fans.
A sci-fi spoof, and a damn fine sci-fi movie rolled into one it takes the mick out of the genre in a new and refreshing way, skipping the overused cliches for better gags and some real belly laughs. The effects are uniformly superb, and better than those in any of the Star Trek films so far, and with the DTS soundtrack... WOOF. A great demo of the available dynamic range.
Fairly mediocre extras perhaps, such is. Can`t say I minded much! Commentary woudl have been nice, but I guess we`re all getting a tad bored of hearing about more bluescreen and rear-projection!
