Trekkies is hilarious, fascinating, and, at times, almost scary.
This valentine to Trekkiedom (produced by, who else, Paramount) doesn't go in very deep--probably doesn't intend to--but it's also not quite the promotional piece the studio may have envisioned.
Austin Chronicle
Trekkies is a hilarious work, mining the psychology of the average and not-so-average Trek fan, and coming up with the answers to all your burning questions about the show and its devoted following.
Chicago Sun-Times
Trekkies talk at length about how the world would be a saner and more peaceful place if the "Star Trek" philosophy ruled our lives. No doubt it would be a lot more entertaining, too, especially during root canals.
It doesn't analyze or explain it; it just presents it. The result is funny and disturbing at the same time.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
By the end of Trekkies,you almost feel the best way to bring peace to the Middle East would be to hold a Star Trek convention there.
Trekkies doesn't quite take us to the final frontier, however, it is the best documentary on the subject and a good laugh.
Most of the extreme Trek fans it features are obsessed in a big way, and if they were your children you'd probably be thinking therapy.
It's a muddled, meandering affair without a thesis or a point to prove.
The movie plays like a very expanded version of what would make -- and likely has made -- a cute TV newsmagazine segment.
