Galaxy Quest – 4 stars

Galaxy Quest is a consistently amusing film. Two or three laugh out loud lines and consistent good chuckles and/or smiles throughout. The smartest part of the movie is finding a good sight gag, i.e., the Thermians, who enlist a Star Trek-like crew of actors into a real space adventure . . . their walk and facial expressions are pretty darn funny (I was reminded of the sight gag of people falling out of the sky in Being John Malkovich – no matter how many times I saw it, I laughed, and the gag was used a lot). And one of the Thermians is none other than Rainn Wilson of “The Office” fame.
