Episode 143: Galaxy Quest (1999)

GalaxyQuestThe second film in our Sci-Fi Comedy/Parody Films pairing is one that brings a unique blend of pathos to its comedy, so much so that by film's end, you care about the characters and actually want them to succeed, which isn't always the case in a comedy. Starring Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Sam Rockwell, and Daryl "Chill" Mitchell as the crew of the TV program "Galaxy Quest," in their latter years, long after the program's been cancelled, this film is something of a love-letter to fans and the conventions they patronize. Enter Enrico Colantoni, Patrick Breen, Missile Pyle (in her first feature film role), and Jed Rees as the Thermians who seek out the help of the actors they believe to be real heroes, to help fight Sarris (played brilliantly by Robin Sachs). The actors-turned-heroes must find a way to become their characters for real and triumph over the bad guy, but not without the help of some of their biggest fans, led by Justin Long (in HIS first feature film role). It's a comedy, it's a love story, it's a sci-fi adventure, and somehow it succeeds on all three fronts! Plus, the trio disclose how their day jobs influenced the pick of the next pairing coming up!
