More Mayhem and Eccentricity in 'Red 2'

Everyone looks to be having fun in Red 2, an action film that doesn’t feel the need to brood.

Galaxy Quest: Deluxe Edition

I watched Star Trek in a theater and Galaxy Quest at home on TV -- Galaxy Quest was more fun.

Fun with Dick and Jane (2005)

For a comedy with so much politico-cultural baggage on its mind (and it's not above using Enron as a final punch line), Dick and Jane remains curiously inert.

Galaxy Quest (1999)

Robert Zemeckis's Contact (1997) is without a doubt the finest movie in recent memory to deal with the question of what might be happening to all those rays of media dreck - TV shows, radio programs, and the like - we've been beaming higgledy-piggledy through the cosmos for the last century. Galaxy Quest is almost as certainly the second-finest such recent film, but come to think of it, I can't really recall a third, offhand, so I suppose this might constitute a less-than-ringing endorsement.

Galaxy Quest (1999)

In the guise of a spoof of Star Trek, Dean Parisot's cheesy and pleasurable Galaxy Quest delves deeply into the social relation known as fandom. What, the film seems to ask, is a fan?"
