4.0 out of 5 stars How can you not love Mary Katherine Gallagher? July 8, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A super star for "Superstar" ! July 31, 2005
Format:DVD
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!

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 Definately The "SuperStar" of My Collection!!! August 7, 2002
A Kid's Review
Format:DVD
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 HILARIOUS ! April 11, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is just plain funny. If you are a fan of SNL, you will love Superstar. I admit that Mary Katherine Gallagher is one of my least favorite skits from the show, but this move REALLY surprised me by just how hilarious it was- The parts with the tree and stop sign were instant classics! This is just a movie to make you laugh, people over analyize it too much-- just sit back, relax and enjoy yourself, you will end up loving it. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars-- it's very good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superstar! (Only read if you've seen the movie!) May 30, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I thought Superstar was the best movie I have ever seen! I can relate to her unpopularity. This is the best thing Molly Shannon has ever done! Superstar is about a girl named Mary Kathrine who is left out of everything. Mary even got put in Special Ed because of her weirdness. There are very funny things along the way. I think the casting is good. Elaine Hendrix always plays a good bad guy, and Will Ferrel is very funny. I also think whoever played Helen (Mary's friend) was very good.

This is an older movie but it is still fun to watch. If you are looking for theater then you are out of luck. If you are looking for a fun movie to watch give it a try.
