Galaxy Quest (1999) Film Review

When the cast of a long-ended TV Sci Fi show end up accidentally on a real life mission with aliens, what can possibly go wrong?

What a cast. Alan Rickman, Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, Enrico Colantoni… just amazing. I watched this years ago and I remember being thoroughly entertained. Watching it again recently, I loved it so much. The story is clever, maybe a bit heavy handed at times, but just so good. The writing is clever, the performances are cheesy when they need to be, and Alan Rickman was able to turn what should have been an absurd moment to such a touching moment that it made my tear up. I think this is one of my favourite ever films.
