Saw “Galaxy Quest” again tonight – fun and it makes good points, too.

We just saw a favorite movie again on cable tonight.  I am so glad, because it makes me think of great things to share with you

I LOVE “Galaxy Quest”.  It was released in 1999 and always makes me smile.

I really enjoy looking up details of movies and shows on IMDB.com.  I love to see people in the cast that I didn’t remember, especially before they were famous!


The director is Dean Parisot.  He has directed a lot of great tv shows (like Monk), and another favorite movie of mine – “Home Fries” with Drew Barrymore, Luke Wilson, and Catherine O’Hara.

The movie is available on Netflix.com if you are a member, there.


The cast is so good –

Tim Allen (Toy Story,  The Santa Clause)
Sigourney Weaver (Avatar)
Alan Rickman  (Harry Potter)
Tony Shalhoub  (Monk)
Justin Long (Dodgeball)
Enrico Colantoni  (Just Shoot Me!)

The story is very sweet and appeals to kids as well as middle aged geezers who grew up on Star Treik!  That’s me.  LOL

The group was in a tv show, kind of like Star Trek.  Now, they do conventions, paid appearances, etc.  Tim Allen’s character is bored, sloppy, rude, and drunk.

Tim Allen has a great story line where he learns to be fair and be a man, and share credit with his friends.

Then a group of real aliens come to Tim Allen for help.  They think that the “historical documents” (the tv shows that they saw) were real, and that this crew can save their species.

Enrico Colatoni is just amazing in this movie.  He plays the reluctant leader of a species of aliens that look kind of like octopuses (I had to look up the correct plural for octopus!).  They have a device that gives them a human form.  He is a sweet and innocent creature, in difficult circumstances.

The TV show’s catch phrase was “Never Give Up, Never Surrender”.

How great for our lives as well!

You can give up on your dreams.  You can never surrender to your fear and anxiety about success.

We want to help you!

    I so love this movie, and it has one of my all time fav actors, Alan Rickman. Reminds me so much of the sci-fi conventions I used to attend.

    This is one that I somehow missed … but I do love its basic message … of never giving up. Thanks, Sally, for the reminder!
