This film should not work. A Trek comedy? Set on Earth? And yet...it totally does. It IS funny, the characters are fun and the movie is pure entertainment.
Agreed. I am not a fan of comedies in general, but everything just clicked in this one and hit all the right notes. The awesome ending is also a huge plus. "My friends, we've come home."

Im glad you agree and understand what I was trying to say. When I first watched it [and had heard about it] I expected a long, lame slog. I was so pleasantly surprised by it. Its just so fun.

Seems like Nemesis, Insurrection and The Final Frontier are on the losing end, behind Galaxy Quest.

Are Baird, Frakes and Shatner now allowed to say "Fuck you"?

ST VI is probably my third-favorite, after Khan and the one with the whales. I find it addictively compelling every time I watch it.
What I've always found interesting about The Voyage Home is that so many people like it but can't remember its title.

Absolutely. It's a surefire test for distinguishing hardcore Trekkies from the rest of the world. Only the most devoted fans actually know the title of that movie.

I've often joked that Paramount should just bite the bullet and retitle the movie STAR TREK IV: THE ONE WITH THE WHALES.

In that case, they should also re-name Spock "The Guy with the Pointed Ears" ...or... "Dr. Spock."

Re: TrekBBS movie ranking thread!

In light of resent feedback on fan opinion from Mr. Pegg and Mr. Orci, I offer a new designation for the Star Trek reboot movies; instead of NuTrek, I suggest . . . FuTrek.

Someone around here called it Star Trek: Fractured Universe. STFU.

While I don't feel sorry for Abrams that some fans bash his films, it's kind of interesting that Frakes gets little blame for Insurrection while Baird and Shatner get a lot of blame for their films (Shatner especially appropriately as he came up with the story although he's forgiven for his other contributions).
