    Absolutely hilarious. It's a satire of sci-fi-series, nerds and actors and it really does its job - so many great references to things that are so very true.

    Basically it's the story of the cast of a formerly very successful sci-fi-series; they are not very pleased with their present situation - until they encounter some REAL aliens who beg them to save their people.

    I won't even begin to name all of the flaws, characteristics and facts about such series that are being made fun of in this movie - it's a lot of them and it's extremely funny. I don't think you have to be a sci-fi-fan or a nerd to enjoy this film - but I'm a bit of both and I just love it.

    The cast as a whole is amazing - I still have to emphasize Alan Rickman's performance. Whether he is pissed off by the spectacle about the sci-fi-role he considers lowbrow or he's rolling his eyes about a dim-witted remark of one of his co-stars - he is just hilarious and absolutely brilliant.

    Great comedy!

    I didn’t think I’d like this movie at all but I was surprised. This movie was hilarious! I loved every second of it. You really don’t have to be a huge fan of Sci-Fi entertainment to enjoy this film but it definitely helps. 12 years 4 months ago
