Was a good one.  I'd probably place it lower on the list of Star Trek ones, but I think that's common for the rifftrax I watch for movies I enjoy.  Works just fine, but works even better on the bad ones.

This was the best Star Trek riff they've done.  I'm glad too because this is my all time favorite Star Trek movie.  They really did it justice by having a hilarious riff.

By the way, I saw this in the theater on opening day and the dialogue line that got the loudest cheers and applause was the minion saying he couldn't raise the shields, so that line has always stuck out to me because I still hear those cheers in my head when I watch this movie.  So I was happy to see a good riff at that point.

I laughed consistently throughout the movie. Ended up giving it an 8. It's not top tier, but pretty darn enjoyable. If I had to rank it among this year's releases, I'd probably rank it 4th, behind Harry Potter but ahead of Highlander.

Just watched it again, theatrical cut this time (yea, I've got both DVDs).  I think the quicker pacing of the theatrical cut makes the rifftrax seem funnier.

Still a solid 9 from me, almost on the floor a few times so not quite a 10.

Oh, and, Coooooooooooommmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....

Gave it a 7.  It was okay, upping the quotient of juvenile humor (compared to some of the more recent riffs) knocked it down a few ranks for me.

Edit - thinking about some more I have knock it down to a 6, it just wasn't as good as I know they can do.

I couldn't decide between 7 and 8, so I went for 8.  I quite enjoyed this one... Lots of laughs.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I gave it an 8. I deducted a full point for the severe lack of Chekov-bashing...and missing the "Mr. Sulu, you may...indulge yourself" opportunity.

Yes, an "oh my" at that point would have been quite funny.

Yeah, they whiffed on Chekov but nailed most of the Sulu stuff I'd have wanted.

I meant to give it an 8 but clicked on 9. 

Solid Riff.

They showed amazing restraint, only one Kirstey Alley fat joke.  Loved the Sulu stuff.  Overall, I liked it a lot.

It feels like the writers sleepwalked through this one.  Maybe another look is warranted.  I'll vote when I do.

Meh, gave it a six.

I guess I was expecting them to rip into the source material more than they did (I just don't see the appeal in Star Trek, but bashing it is always grand), and there were a lot of callbacks to other riffs which only gave me a light chuckle.

Rifftrax! You have failed to amuse me. Do not let it happen again!  :angry:

Being as this was the best "Star Trek" movie, it was only made better by the guys.  Loved it :clap:

I've watched this a few more times and have to say that it gets better with every viewing. I now will proudly say that this is my second favorite rifftrax of all time ("The Bourne Identity" being first).

The timing, the delivery, and the jokes are almost all perfect. The only minor issues are the fart jokes (except the Jar-Jar one, that's golden) and the lack of Chekov jokes. Everything else is great. Also, it has the best opening credits riffing ever.
