GALAXY QUEST
August 15, 2012  | By David Bianculli

More Max, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
One of my favorite “spider-web” movies – my coinage for a movie that you watch no matter how many times it shows up on TV (read my Bianculli’s Blog for more details, and other candidates). Tim Allen as the William Shatner-esque star of a cult sci-fi TV show, Alan Rickman as the Spock-ish science officer, Sigourney Weaver as the Uhura-like attractive communications officer, and even Sam Rockwell as the expendable junior crewman – they’re all fabulous.  So are Tony Shalhoub and Daryl Mitchell as other veterans of the TV show, and Enrico Colantoni and Missi Pyle as aliens who take the TV crew very, very seriously. It’s a brilliant send-up, amusing and touching at the same time.
