Variety
One of the holiday movie season's more pleasant surprises. A mischievously clever and slickly commercial sci-fi comedy.
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
Boston Globe
A clever, affectionate, and entertaining holiday snack for sci-fi fans. Falling somewhere between slick and cheesy.

San Francisco Examiner
An exceptionally funny science-fiction comedy.

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.

It keeps its tongue firmly in its cheek, offers a few genuine laughs, moves swiftly, if not at warp speed, and is led by a talented cast.

Village Voice
The many eight-to-11-year-olds in the audience seemed completely enthralled.

Charlotte Observer
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.

Chicago Reader
Overall it's what it aspires to be--a pleasant time-waster.

USA Today
Skirts dangerously close to being the thing it parodies: a second-rate space opera.
