Galaxy Quest
A Movie Review

MPAA Rated - PG

It's 1:42 Long

A Review by
The Dude on the Right
I was planning on seeing "Galaxy Quest" anyway, it looked kind of cute. But when I saw in the newspaper that it was "rated PG for cleavage", among other things, I knew I had to go. And you know what? In the end it wasn't even the cleavage that had me enjoying this movie so much (although it didn't hurt and I will say that Sigourney Weaver is totally hot as a blond), but rather a fun story that had me laughing out loud at many times and just enjoying the movie experience, even with the lady who wouldn't stop coughing for the hour and a half.

"Galaxy Quest" tells the story of a group of actors and actress from an old "Star Trek" type series. They've really got nothing else going on in their life except the conventions where the psycho fans keep coming, and their lives basically suck. Then one day a group of people show up, seemingly psycho fans, but actually aliens who have come to get the space heroes they saw on the transmissions (not knowing it was just a TV show) to help save their civilization. It's "beam me up" time and all of a sudden our cast of characters are real space heroes.

The fun thing about "Galaxy Quest" is that it totally pokes fun at the entire "convention" theory, like the Saturday Night Live sketch with William Shatner, but doesn't make it necessarily mean. There are lots of jokes that adults can relate to, especially adults with just a hint of "Star Trek" or "Star Wars" in them, and the action is family oriented so the kids will get other jokes and like the movie too.

Much more enjoyable than I thought it would be, I give "Galaxy Quest" 4 stars out of 5. I laughed a lot, I wasn't ashamed my niece and nephew were along, and just was pleasantly surprised by a movie with a goofy premise.

That's it for this one! I'm The Dude on the Right!! L8R!!!
