Default campy

Star Trek V starts out "campy" and ends "campy" but "I like this ship" to quote Scotty.

Watch it as if it was told by the characters about the characters, I think you'll get it then. It's a good way to get a feeling about William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy, and the reason actors should stay actors and writers writers. (Sorry but that's my opinion)

The main quibble I always hear about Trek V is how they go to the center of the the galaxy so quickly. Is that what makes the plot so bad? Beyond that, what makes a quest for God so horrible?

Example of a really bad bad part: Sulu and Chekhov trying to get out of having to go back to Enterprise by pretending there is a bad storm around by blowing into the communicator. Ugh!!!

It may be a ridiculous bit, but it is an oft quoted part by my father and I.

How about the 'Go climb a rock" t-shirt?

Seriously there were some great dramatic parts by the three. But the groaners detracted from them.

I agree, but I don't find the groaners to be as bad as the ones in Insurrection, Nemesis, and Generations.

Kirk: Spock I outta kick your ***!
Spock: If you think it would help.
Bones: Want me to hold him for you Jim?

Overall, this movie was just drivel. After the great feedback from the comedic ST4, Paramount wanted more funny. Aside from that, EVERY person on the Enterprise breaks all the rules just because Sybok "Healed their pain"? Awful idea, and I love Shat but he can NOT direct action.

I DO know that Shat had written it "darker", but Paramount wanted cheese. Also, he wanted some big rock creature to fight at the end (the STV extras disk has the test footage), but that never came to be.

Funnily, they lampooned that in "Galaxy Quest"!

While they were camping:

Spock: I did research on the ships computers about camping rituals. I am about to roast a marshMELLON. Puh-leeze.
