GALAXY, SCI-FI WITH A NEW TWIST

Described as "one big, entertaining, fun, nacho-munching good time," from all reports it appears that "Galaxy Quest" lives up to its billing. It's sci-fi, but with a new twist.
Twenty years after their '70s TV series, the "Galaxy Quest" stars, though aging, are still in costume making appearances at sci-fi conventions for die-hard fans. However, at one convention these fans turn out to be a little too real, or unreal, as the case may be.
A group of aliens has mistakenly intercepted the casts' TV series as historical fact, and they have come to the convention to get help from this unlikely source. The cast, of course, led by Sigourney Weaver and Tim Allen, has no more idea about space travel than they do about acting on the legitimate stage.
They have no director, no script and a very real dilemma. The aliens whisk Allen, Weaver, and their crew off planet earth to the far galaxies to fight their arch enemy. How does it all turn out? My goodness, the trekkies will never tell.
The film is directed by Dean Parisot, and is rated PG for "some action violence, mild language and sensuality." That's a new one.
It starts Thursday Dec. 31 at Market Square East.
