The original GALAXY QUEST
29 December 1999 | by TresixSee all my reviews

The second I heard the plot to the movie GALAXY QUEST, this TV movie jumped into my mind. It uses the same premise: A hero from a cheesy science fiction TV show is recruited by the inhabitants of a distant planet when they see the episodes and think that the good Captain is an actual space hero. The "Captain", however, proves to be all TOO human as he uses his celebrity to have sex with some of the beautiful babes on the planet. However, taking into consideration how long it supposedly takes for a TV signal to go from Earth to the far reaches of the universe, these aliens picked up the signal rather quickly. Maybe they're even more advanced than imagined. For the most part, CAPTAIN ZOOM is moderately funny. I could see how it would work as a movie but not as the subsequent (and short-lived) TV series that it spawned.
