Galaxy Quest, starring Tim Allen and others, debuted at the box office in 1999. It came and went without much fanfare. IMDB says it made $45 mil at the American box office, which probably wasn’t a failure but at the same time wasn’t anything spectacular. Yet, sci-fi fans enjoyed it. And over the years, it’s probably gained even more fans. YouTuber Oliver Harper provides 25-minute retro review of the film.
I watched Galaxy Quest years ago and I believe I thought it was entertaining enough. Nothing that I would be eager to watch again, but enjoyable all the same. Others, however, apparently enjoyed it a whole lot more. And Mr. Harper touches upon that in his review. (Indeed, he gives the film incredibly high marks.) So check it out.
On a side note, Galaxy Quest is obviously a spoof of the Star Trek franchise. And it reminds me of an episode of the television series Castle (“The Final Frontier”), which also spoofed Star Trek. (Castle was a great show that perfectly combined police procedural/crime, drama, and comedy.) I included two scenes from this episode below. The second one is particularly humorous.
