Galaxy Quest (1999)

Links: TVTropes, Wikipedia, IMDB (7.2).

The best Star Trek movie ever made. This comedic parody borrows a lot from classic Star Trek and Next Generation but creates its own unique, yet distinctly "Star Trek"-flavored story that ribs the silly and embarrassing moments of Star Trek without being even slightly mean-spirited about it. The casting choices are inspired, the pacing is tight, the lines are great, the delivery is great, and the script strikes an excellent balance between snark and affection... it's hard to imagine that any change to this movie could possibly have improved it. Score: 4 stars out of 4.
