Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
Living in exile on the planet Vulcan, the ragtag former crew of the USS Enterprise steal a starship after receiving a planetary distress call from Earth: a space probe has entered into orbit around Earth, disabled global power on the planet and evaporated the oceans. Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy) and the rest of the officers travel back in time to retrieve now-extinct humpback whales, which Spock has deduced will communicate with the probe and send it away from Earth.

Star Trek IV is my second favorite Star Trek movie with the original cast behind only Start Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Kirk and his crew must travel back in time to 1980s San Francisco to find a species that has gone extinct in their century in the hopes of repopulating the species. Humor abounds as the characters find themselves facing the quirks of life in the 1980s, as well as inferior technologies.
In terms of content, there is some language (as crew members believe they must swear to fit in), but it is milder profanity with no F-words. There is not any sexual situations, and even violence is minimal. I highly recommend this movie!December 24th, 2013 · Details
This movie is great on so many levels I couldn't name them all. Tops would have to be the fact that most of the movie takes place in 1980's San Francisco. This movie could have turned out terribly, but thanks to great dialogue, humor and plot this is counted as one of the better ST movies. Spock is absolutely hilarious in various parts of this. Whether you are a fan or not, this movie is worth your time. There is a little more swearing than normal, but it is used for comic relief involving Spock. Trust me you'll laugh, and wont be offended in the least.August 25th, 2011 · Details
