Editorial Reviews

You'll laugh, you'll cheer! A new queen of comedy is born! - Earl Dittman, Wireless Magazine Saturday Night Live star Molly Shannon brings her popular character Mary Katherine Gallagher to the big screen in this hilarious comedy romp.All schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher (Shannon) wants in life is a kiss. Not just any kiss, mind you -- a big-time, hold-your-breath-'til-you-think-you're-gonna-faint, Hollywood-style kiss. But no matter how hard she tries, no one will kiss her. Mary Katherine decides that the only way she's ever going to get what she wants is to become just like the people she sees getting those kisses in the movies. And when Catholic Teen Magazine sponsors a talent contest at her school, Mary Katherine just might make her dreams come true...and become a Superstar! Costarring Will Ferrell (A Night at the Roxbury).

4.0 out of 5 stars How can you not love Mary Katherine Gallagher? July 8, 2007
The real Superstar is Molly Shannon, who never gets enough credit for her comedic and bona fide acting skills. It's great to have the always-funny Will Ferrell (as well as Harland Williams, one of my favorite comics) alongside her for the ride, but her portrayal of Mary Katherine Gallagher is all you really need to laugh it up for the 80 or so minutes of this SNL skit - turned full-fledged movie. I sometimes wonder what it would be like to be one of the lucky people who were always cool and made great sport of putting the Mary Katherine Gallaghers of the world down. I'll never know because Mary Katherine is definitely "my people," a unique character who suffers the insults and humiliations of life among her cooler, prettier peers even as she dreams of having just a taste of the kind of life they take for granted. In the context of this movie, what Mary Katherine yearns for is a real slobber-knocker of a kiss - and, like all of us losers, she falls for the most popular guy/girl in school. In other words, she does not have an easy row to hoe.

She is realistic enough to realize that the likes of Sky Corrigan (Ferrell) isn't going to drop the head cheerleader and come smooching her way any time soon (even after he tells her she has some nice moves). No, she thinks the only way she can get the hunky guy is to emulate her Hollywood heroines and become a - wait for it - Superstar! And just when she thinks she's exhausted all of her options, along comes a school talent show (with the winner getting the part of an extra in a morally positive film in Hollywood) that just might be the answer to her prayers. Winning the talent show would definitely impress Sky, she tells herself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best comedy I've seen in awhile -- a keeper May 12, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
I'm not usually a fan of the comedy genre -- especially the Hollywood variety. Yet for some reason, I love this movie, and have seen it three times in the week I've rented it. Molly Shannon is absolutely brilliant, and her performance is genuinely funny and at times, touching. Even though this movie does rely on Hollywood conventions (like mawkish, one-dimensional romance) and is silly beyond its own goal (that ridiculous God spectacle that "guides" Mary), it redeems itself through the hilarious tree-smooching scenes, which are priceless, as well as many others. I'd recommend this film to anyone who wants to chill out and have a laugh -- even if you think Hollywood comedy isn't for you. This is a keeper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A super star for "Superstar" ! July 31, 2005
I love this movie! I bought it so I could watch it whenever I need a good laugh. It doesn't have a dull moment in the whole movie. Superstar is definately a "LOL" film. The characters are well chosen, and play their parts great. And who could refuse yet another movie with Will Ferrel?! All in all, I give "Superstar" a Super Star! No pun intended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Definately The "SuperStar" of My Collection!!! August 6, 2002
A Kid's Review
You've gotta see this dvd!! It is the GREATEST!!! It stars the hliarious Molly Shannon and Will Ferrel from Saturday Night Live. It is a movie about a geeky and very clumsy Catholic school-girl who has all her life wanted to be a superstar so that she could get a "big fireworks hollywood type kiss". So she trys out for a talent contest at school to try and meet her goal. I don't wanna give anything away, but that's basically what it's about... Anyway, I think it's a GREAT movie. I schedule my time to watch it every night at least 4-5 times a week! It's a MUST-HAVE for ALL comedy lovers!!! Gives you PLENTY of laughs!!! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourite comedies January 24, 2001
When i read what Roger Ebert wrote about M. Shannon and her character in this film, that was the last time i listen to anything he says. Alot of professional reviewers thought the character was just a little too dark, but that's what was so beautiful about how well they developed her. This character is absolutely complex, and sincere and i think a lot of people just could not handle that. She is strong and weak, loud and brash, and spends half the movie whispering. She is an extremely complex nerd who thinks she's a superstar...and she is. She goes through so much of the stuff that different young women may go through in their minds, but she is zany enough to do it all. WOW.
Will Farrell is an absolute riot as her crush, Sky Kerrigan, Tom Green's small role is hilarious, and Elain Hendrix is great/perfect. I forgot who plays the best friend but she is the best next to Shannon. All character i have never seen in anything else, rare and spontaineous. Most movies are just simple characters with one side to them. These guys have it all and it's all done with very little taste (always a plus for an SNL movies).
The catholic school scenes will just kill if you've ever gone or have friends who attend catholic school. So many of the jokes about catholic school are both over the top and subtle. Like the father eating the dry toast is just one of the funniest things i've ever seen in my life, and it's only a 10 second scene using the sound of his biting into burnt toast to make me double over in laughter.
Each scene is a small skit, that's how this movie is made, and some people do not appreciate that style of movie. I've heard people say it is totally fragmented and i think this is what they are refering to. If people are waiting for a formula film this ain't it.
