More than one joke or one idea. It's a thoroughly satisfying comedy --and a respectable space adventure, as well.
91
Entertainment Weekly
A fast, loose, and very funny parody that pulls off the not-so-simple feat of tweaking Trekkies and honoring them.
88
New York Post
An affectionate, often clever and unflaggingly funny satire.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie's humor works best when the illogic of the TV show gets in the way.
75
A clever, affectionate, and entertaining holiday snack for sci-fi fans. Falling somewhere between slick and cheesy.
75
Philadelphia Inquirer
It's quite a lot of fun.

New York Daily News
No masterpiece, but in a season dominated by films as heavy -- and about as time-consuming -- as brain surgery, a little brain candy is sweet.
75
Christian Science Monitor
The story is silly, the acting is campy, the effects are amusingly tacky. A mildly entertaining romp that pokes refreshing fun at its own occasional violence.
75
San Francisco Examiner
An exceptionally funny science-fiction comedy.
63
The good-hearted Galaxy Quest delivers fun and confusion in equal measure, as it gently tweaks the fanaticism of "Star Trek"/"Star Wars" fans while validating it at the same time.
50
USA Today
Skirts dangerously close to being the thing it parodies: a second-rate space opera.
