Galaxy Quest

Tim Allen stars in this entertaining and well-written parody of the Star Trek hype. He plays a man who was the star of a popular television show, Galaxy Quest, from the early eighties. As time progressed, the show gained die-hard popularity, like Star Trek did. Allen, and the rest of the Galaxy Quest cast lives their post-television life signing autographs and making special appearances for a living, never doing anything important since their show was canceled. That is, until a quartet of off-the-wall aliens reach his house, who received television signals of the show and mistook it for "documented history" and calls for Allen and his crew to defeat Sarris, a bad alien-dude who threatens their very existence! Galaxy Quest is entertaining and funny.
