New Times

Contains possibly the best William Shatner performance ever committed to celluloid.

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

it works largely on our fond memories of the first movie

Steve Crum

Less hilarious than its predecessor, but still a hundred or so laughs.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Inferior to the original, but enough jokes hit their marks to make it worthwhile.

Ed Gonzalez
Apollo Guide

The only significant difference between the storyline of this film and the original is that this one takes place upon a spaceship headed toward the moon.

Alex Sandell
Juicy Cerebellum

Without the ZAZ team, it loses everything that made the original a classic.

Scott Weinberg

Does manage to deliver a few jokes of its own, but this sequel is nothing but a pale retread of a true classic. Nice to see all the old faces, though.
