A perfect, light hearted Sci-Fi Comedy which keeps you entertained for the whole two hours

WARNING!!! POSSIBLE SPOILERS!!!!!!!! "Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home" is arguably the greatest Trek. It is the most popular Star Trek film (not including the 2009 reboot). Before the reboot, it was the only Trek to gross over $100 million domestically, plus it was extremely well received by critics and fans alike. It surpassed every expectation that it had set up for itself, simply because it is the funniest and most light hearted Trek. The best part is the interactions between the characters. Yes, the film was nominated for 4 Oscars (once again, the most of any Trek) including best effects, but the effects aren't the best part. It was the success of this film that convinced Paramount Television to give a spin-off series a shot. As you probably know, TNG, DS9, ST:V, and ST:E were all very successful, and they were the result of a chain reaction which started with the success of "The Voyage Home". The film also noted Leonard Nimoy as a top-notch comic director. This won him the job of directing "Three Men and a Baby". If you like Star Trek, this is definitely the film for you. Everyone else? Just research the characters a bit and I'm sure that you'll have a good time. This film earned its money and its acclaim. It features many classic moments (Spock mind-melding with the whale, Scotty talking to the computer, Kirk using "colourful metaphors" to handle an angry cabbie, Spock using the nerve pinch on a punk on the bus, Kirk and Spock arguing over their preferred foods, and that's just scratching the surface!). 10/10 A Sci-Fi Comedy along the quality of "Ghostbusters", "MIB", and "Back to the Future"! That might be an overstatement, but I think it's true!

The stupidest plot of any Star Trek film... period

The absurd plot in the movie is summed up in one line by Doctor McCoy: "Who would send a probe hundreds of light years to talk to a whale?" Spock then obviously infers in an exchange of dialog that whales not only have a entire language, but if only humans were smart enough to understand it, the Earth wouldn't suffer from global warming. Crap like that could only be written by someone like Leonard Nimoy. Obviously there's no plausible explanation presented as to why an alien civilization would destroy the entire Earth because they stopped hearing sounds from a single species on Earth from hundreds of light-years away. What really gets to me is that this idiotic plot combined with the time-travel element does not even seem to bother anyone who thinks this is one of the best Star Trek films ever made. Despite all the stupid plot holes, this movie is still more enjoyable than the next two installments, but nowhere near as good as Star Trek II or even Star Trek III.

Fun Star Trek film is also the least "Trek" of all the films

This is likely the Star Trek film with the widest appeal, in that it's essentially a fish-out-of-water comedy with a little sci-fi thrown in. An unknown ship is approaching earth, broadcasting an indecipherable message, and destroying all planets in it's wake. The Enterprise crew figures out that the message is whale sounds, except that whales have been extinct for hundreds of years, so there's no one left to answer the ship. This leads our intrepid crew to slingshot around the sun to travel back in time in order to bring a whale to the future to save future earth. Once in modern day San Francisco (or 1980s San Francisco), the crew has a series of humorous encounters with cars, money, and punk rockers, while trying to secure a whale. It's all quite funny and entertaining, but it's not very "Trek." The characters are all still the characters we know and love, but the story is pretty much "Crocodile Dundee" "Coming to America" or "The Out-of-Towners" except with the Star Trek crew out of their element. But not to be too dismissive, it is a lot of fun and is never boring, which is more than can be said of most Star Trek films, which tend to be pretty hit-or-miss. The film also get bonus points for including my favorite Go-Go, Jane Wiedlin as an Alien Communications Officer.
