Rated “R” Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest is one of my favorite nerd tribute/parody movies.  It walks the fine line between mocking nerd culture and providing serious nerd-o-tainment.  We’re given a “still in her prime” Sigourney Weaver, a young (smoking hot) Missi Pyle, a spot on Justin Long, a solid performance from Sam Rockwell…. and Tim Allen channeling William Shatner.  This movie made me laugh then and makes me laugh now on different levels.  The best part about Galaxy Quest is that it’s a comedy wrapped around a phenomenal Sci-Fi movie.  The struggle between the Termians and the evil warlord Sarris who is bent on obtaining the mythical “Omega 13″.

Earlier this week, producer Lindsay Collins presented the nerd-verse a juicy tidbit in an interview while promiting “John Carter”.

“We had lunch with Sigourney, who was telling us that there actually used to be an R-rated version of that movie which was awesome. It was the director’s cut and it was R-rated and everybody was swearing and there were sex scenes, and the whole thing. They didn’t know what to do with it, so they had to re-edit the whole thing and made it what it is today. We were like, ‘How do we get our hands on the R-rated version of Galaxy Quest?’ She said ‘I don’t know!’ and we were like, ‘Come on, Sigourney!”

Wait…. What was that… Doth my ears deceive me?  Could there possible be a version of Galaxy Quest out there with some hot and steamy Weaver/Rockwell action out there… or… well.. any combination of humans and/or aliens in the film??  This nerd sure hopes so.  If such a version exists, what would you hope to see?  Would you enjoy a love triangle between Jason Nesmith, Gwen DeMarco, and the shape shifting Laliari?  We can only hope that this  cut will eventually see the light of day.

    It is a big bummer when a movie is released in a watered down form. I would definitely be down to see an R cut of Galaxy Quest. This is where a show like Storage Wars can really come to the rescue. Keep diggin’ guys ’til it is found.

    We have Sig’s sex scenes to see dammit! Although if it’s with Alan Rickman I’ll pass.
