Review by Susan Granger
3½ stars out of 4

Glory, Hallelujah - this is the Christmas action comedy you've been waiting for! Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, and Daryl Mitchell play five actors who - 20 years ago - starred on a popular television series that was canceled. For four seasons, from 1979 to 1982, they played the crew of the NSEA Protector - now they earn their living appearing in costume at sci-fi conventions and chain-store openings. However, far in deep, outer space, the Thermians, a race of aliens from the Klatu Nebula, have intercepted Earth's TV transmissions and, having no knowledge of fiction or drama, they have mistaken the sci-fi shows for valid historical documents. So when they're faced with a deadly adversary, the ruthless Roth'h'ar Sarris of Fatu-Krey (Robin Sachs), the Thermians abduct the characters - Comdr. Peter Quincy Taggert, Lt. Tawny Madison, Dr. Lazarus, et al - not realizing they're really out-of-work actors. With no script, no director, and no clue about real space travel, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives to become the intergalactic heroes they've convinced everyone they are, as they encounter cannibalistic Blue Demon children, a giant Rock Monster, and a Pig Lizard. As the vain, self-serving commander, Tim Allen has never been better. Sigourney Weaver is a sexy, shameless babe, and Alan Rickman is outrageous as a Shakespearean-trained Brit who has been reduced to playing a half-human/half reptile. On the Granger Movie Gauge of 1 to 10, Galaxy Quest is an exuberant, enormously funny 8. Aptly directed by Dean Parisot from a cleverly ironic screenplay by David Howard and Robert Gordon, it's a bright, shiny holiday package of pure enjoyment, destined to blast into one of the big hits of the season.
