#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – The sci-fi television series “Galaxy Quest”, which took place aboard the intergalactic spaceship NSEA Protector, starred Jason Nesmith as suave Commander Peter Quincy Taggert, Gwen DeMarco as sexy communications person Lt. Tawny Madison (a role which consisted solely of repeating what the computer stated, much to Gwen’s annoyance), Shakespearean trained Sir Alexander Dane as alien Dr. Lazarus, Fred Kwan as engineer Tech Sgt. Chen, and Tommy Webber as child gunner Laredo. Eighteen years after the series last aired, it lives on in the hearts of its rabid fans. However, it lives on in infamy for its stars, who have not been able to find meaningful acting work since. Their current lives revolve around cashing in on however those roles will afford, which usually entails attending fan conventions or worse, such as shopping mall openings. Only Jason seems to relish his lot in life, until he finds out that his co-stars detest him because of his superior attitude as “the Commander”, and much of the public considers him a laughing stock. Their lives change when Jason is approached by who he thinks are convention fans asking for help. They are in reality an alien race called Thermians, led by Mathesar, who have modeled their existence after the series, which they believe to be real. When Jason and then the rest of his co-stars (along with Guy Fleegman, who was killed off before the opening credits in only one episode) go along with the Thermians, Jason’s co-stars who believe they are off to yet another paying gig, they learn that they have to portray their roles for real. Without screenwriters to get them to a happy and heroic ending, they have to trust that their play acting will work, especially in dealing with the Thermian’s nemesis, General Sarris. Guy in particular fears that he will go the way his character did on the series. But when they run across technical issues that they as actors didn’t care anything about during the filming of the series and thus now don’t know how to deal with, they need to find someone who should know what to do.
Plot: For four years, the courageous crew of the NSEA protector – “Commander Peter Quincy Taggart” (Tim Allen), “Lt. Tawny Madison (Sigourney Weaver) and “Dr.Lazarus” (Alan Rickman) – set off on a thrilling and often dangerous mission in space…and then their series was cancelled! Now, twenty years later, aliens under attack have mistaken the Galaxy Quest television transmissions for “historical documents” and beam up the crew of has-been actors to save the universe. With no script, no director and no clue, the actors must turn in the performances of their lives.

Really good watch, would watch again, and can recommend, especially for Star Trek fans.
This has a sufficiently high production value, but I think a lot of the budge went to hiring the cast, and building the locations, especially the ship. It’s probably the chief reason why (at least I feel it is the case) people have wanted to do spoofs of Star Trek since the original series, but only “Galaxy Quest” and “The Orville” have really made the attempt. Usually the reaction is to take it in its own serious direction, like Babylon 5, and even “The Orville” lands in between.
I think my favorite aspect of this movie is that it’s actually very similar to “The Invention of Lying” where not only does an alien race build a starship, hands it to Terrans, and then we just keep up the ruse so we can have a starship. While I think the more interesting aspect is the same things that we see in “Star Trek”: the interactions between xenos and Terrans and the reflective aspects of humanity, the audience is quickly reminded that it’s a comedy throughout the movie.
Everyone of the actors is funny, there’s even a young Justin Long here, and while there is sufficient action / drama to move the story forward with some substance, it’s the comedy that you’re going to remember here. Alan Rickman and Tim Allen fighting, Sigourney Weaver translating from human to ship, and general awkwardness of situation.
It’s a good watch, and I think that whether or not you’re a fan of “Star Trek”, then I think there is something at which you can laugh.
If you are thinking this sounds like a spoof of Star Trek you’re on the right track. Tim Allen (Home Improvement, Last Man Standing) adds his brilliant comedic contribution to this star studded cast which includes Sigourney Weaver, Tony Shalhoub, Alan Rickman, and Sam Rockwell. They are the aging stars of the one time hit TV series Galaxy Quest. None of them have worked much since the series ended and they make a meager living reprising their characters at various sci fi conventions, or worse, store openings. Tim Allen loves appearing for die hard fans of the show as “Commander Jason Nesmith”, but none of the other cast members are very thrilled about these appearances, and resent the attention the “Commander” receives.
The cast finds a high quality mock up of the show’s space ship at a store opening appearance, as well as some “extras” who are nothing if not ‘in character’ as members of an alien race seeking help from the famous crew.
Before they realize what has happened they find themselves in space on a real life adventure. This is a FUNNY movie which had me laughing to the end. I was really sorry when it was over, I loved it that much.
By Grabthar’s Hammer! What a movie
The first thing that makes a good movie good is always a great story. The whole idea of actors from a long ago space series being mistaken for being the real deal by actual aliens is indeed ingenious.From there, you put together a top notch cast.They hit the nail on the head there. Tim Allen is a natural for the Jason Nesmith role.A great cast is nothing if they don’t work well together.Not to worry.They are superb. This movie is an excellent twist on the old good vs.evil concept.There are movies whose ideas are so unique,you want to love them and not be disappointed.Take my word,Galaxy Quest delivers the goods.Warp speed!
Finally a film which contains humor of a different color.
Having a husband, who is a huge Star Trek nut, helped me sympathize with this hilarious film. After having been to half a dozen conventions in glory to this campy old sci-fi show, I have to say that this movie manages to target PERFECTLY every strange quirk and idiosyncrasy which surrounds “fan boy” groups.
I was also pleased by the character development which allowed for personalities that were as equally funny as they were original. This is not a “Roman” slap stick, but a witty fun thrall.
I was ESPECIALLY pleased with Alan Rickman’s performance, who is one actor who has never let me down! He delivers his character with perfectly timed synchronicity, and suave appeal. Rickman is one actor who demands attention in every role, and this performance is no exception.
The other performance which was especially appealing was that of Tony Shalhoub. I hope to see this swanky, sly spoken comedian in many more performances. I cannot think of another actor who could have pulled off his lackadaisical, laid appeal. Hilarious, thank you Tony! I can honestly say that this is one movie I can watch and watch, and watch, and it actually becomes more appealing each time. The jokes are layered, so you get something new each time you view it. This is very hard to do in comedy….hats off…….
