Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for "historical documents" and beamed up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe.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 Jeffery Lyons (NBC-TV) calls "The funniest, wittiest comedy of the year."
Can actors rise to the challenge and play their roles for real? The Thermians are counting on it, having studied the "historical documents" of the Galaxy Quest TV show, and their hero worship (not to mention their taste for Monte Cristo sandwiches) is ultimately proven worthy, with the help of some Galaxy geeks on planet Earth. And while Galaxy Quest serves up great special effects and impressive Stan Winston creatures, director Dean Parisot (Home Fries) is never condescending, lending warm acceptance to this gentle send-up of sci-fi TV and the phenomenon of fandom. Best of all is the splendid cast, including Sigourney Weaver as buxom blonde Gwen DeMarco; Alan Rickman as frustrated thespian Alexander Dane; Tony Shalhoub as dimwit Fred Kwan; Daryl Mitchell as former child-star Tommy Webber; and Enrico Colantoni as Thermian leader Mathesar, whose sing-song voice is a comedic coup de grâce. --Jeff Shannon

One of THE BEST spoof sci-fi comedies out there. I love this flick and it was a great deal for only 8 bucks. Cannot beat this with a stick. Never give up, never surrender.Published 4 days ago by fatguyinalilcoat
My wife and I saw this in the theater when it first came out, and loved it. While looking for a movie the whole family could enjoy we thought it would be fun to see it again. Read morePublished 5 days ago by caleone01

|Which is better the new deluxe edition or the old edition which is what...||
More double dipping by the looks... I wish Amazon would clearly display the contents of the DVDs so you can make an informed choice.

I went to Amazon at 11:32 EST to buy it and was really surprised to find I got waitlisted already. Either Amazon barely has any copies in stock or this movie is way more popular than I thought.

|Why did they choose such a bad cover for this movie?||
You are so right, what a terrible cover for a great movie! They've never known how to market this movie well. It is laugh-out-loud funny if you know anything about sci-fi from TV or movies. Humorous, clever, and superb starring cast plus Mac guy Justin Long as a nerdy teen! Excellent flick!
