Install the 2010 Color Theme Editor in VS 2010.

The query linked to, and copied by, @Nelson is inaccurate: it ignores Indexed Views, Full Text Indexes, XML Indexes, etc. If you want a query that will include everything without executing sp_spaceused via sp_MSForEachTable, then I have already posted two variations of it (one here on DBA.StackExchange and the other on StackOverflow) so I won't copy them ...

One more very simple solution: use notepad++. Inside there is very good plugin called Poor man's sql formatter. The drawback is that you have to paste SQL inside the notepad++. But it is free. There is also a web page, but I did not try it.
