Storyline Heading
All schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher wants in life is a kiss. Not just any kiss, mind you - a big-time, hold-your-breath-'til-you-think-you're-going-to-faint, bona fide Hollywood-style kiss. When a magazine sponsors a talent contest at her school, along with a grand prize of a free trip to Hollywood and the chance to be an extra in a movie, she sees the opportunity to make her dreams come true.
DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - Yet another humor-impaired movie inspired by a Saturday Night Live skit. There are a few laughs in this one, but not enough to justify a feature film. Strictly for die-hard SNL fans.

Critic's Review Heading
Below Average
Two things make Superstar marginally more watchable than other recent Saturday Night Live-inspired drek: Molly Shannon is a likable, energetic performer and a few of the jokes are (gasp!) actually funny. Of course, that's not to say there's enough here to justify a feature-length movie (even one that comes in at a skinny 82 minutes, including credits), because there isn't. 10 minutes - the length of an SNL skit - seems more appropriate. To fill in the dead spots, Superstar adds a lame romantic comedy subplot, a few musical numbers (which are surprisingly entertaining), and several tired motion picture parodies. Unfortunately, Saturday Night Live, whether on TV or in theaters, has long since given up its claim to outrageousness and biting humor. Like nearly all of its predecessors, Superstar tries to be bland and crowd-pleasing. It succeeds at the first, but not the second.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
All schoolgirl Mary Katherine Gallagher (Molly Shannon) wants in life is a kiss. Not just any kiss, mind you - a big-time, hold-your-breath-'til-you-think-you're-going-to-faint, bona fide Hollywood-style kiss. But no matter how hard she tries, no one will kiss her. And then it hits her. Mary Katherine realizes the only way she is ever going to get what she wants is to become just like the people she sees getting those kisses in the movies. When Catholic Teen Magazine sponsors a talent contest at her school - along with a grand prize of a free trip to Hollywood and the chance to be an extra in a movie with positive moral values - she sees the opportunity to make her dreams come true. After all, everyone wants to kiss you when you're a SUPERSTAR!
