Galaxy Quest (1999)

4 / 5
Tagline: The show has been cancelled...but the adventure is just beginning
Directed by: Dean Parisot
Written by: David Howard
Actors include: Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman
Genre: Sci-Fi, Comedy
Length: 102 minutes
Banned: Nope
Country: USA

Definitely one of the funniest sci-fi parodies I've seen (and that says a lot considering I hate Tim Allen). It's about a group of people who 18 years ago starred in a sci-fi show called "Galaxy Quest" (which looked a fair bit like Star Trek). The group are going to an autograph signing where they are recruited to fight actual aliens with people who don't seem to realize that the show was pretend. It's a really hilarious misunderstanding with some great comedic lines. They definitely made the most with what they had, hilarious even to me a non Trekkie!
