Galaxy Quest | 1999 | PG | - 2.5.3

Has-been actors from a "Star Trek"-like cancelled show are abducted by aliens who think they are real space adventurers. The aliens, who have constructed everything in their world according to the show, need the actors to save them from an alien threat. With Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman, Tony Shalhoub, Daryl Mitchell, Enrico Colantoni, Sam Rockwell and Missi Pyle. [1:42]

SEX/NUDITY 2 - A little sexual innuendo, some cleavage and a couple of kisses. A man and an alien who looks like a woman kiss passionately and she produces tentacles with which she embraces the human. They end up on the floor (off screen) and it is implied that they may be engaged in more than kissing. We see a topless man, a man wearing a shirt but no pants (and perhaps no underwear; it's never clear) and a woman in her push-up bra.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - There are two torture scenes: During one we can hear screams but see nothing. During the second we catch glimpses of an alien being zapped; he's screaming too. An alien creature explodes and its multicolored guts end up covering several people; one person has some of the alien goo clinging to his face for most of the movie. A human-looking alien is killed and we see dark blue blood coming out of his mouth. Several human-looking aliens are shown suffocating. An alien is zapped with a ray-gun and disintegrates in a flash and a puff. Several aliens look like cute small children but have big pointy teeth and attack one of their own presumably devouring him (they are shown swarming and piling on him totally covering him). A man is hit on the head with a stone, and tries to avoid being crushed by an alien giant made entirely of stone. The same stone-alien throws around other aliens; eventually they are all sucked into space. There are several space battles with spaceships firing at each other and men and aliens exchanging ray-gun fire. One spaceship blows up and several humans are shot. An alien holds up the severed head of one of his subordinates (the head is impaled on a stick). An alien is floating in space and smashes onto a spaceships porthole leaving a green splotch. Several fights between humans and humans and humans and aliens with scuffling and punching. An alien creature looking like a pig licks a human's face with a rather large slithery tongue. A spaceship crash-lands on Earth destroying several cars and the side of a building.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
