In yet another Saturday Night Live skit-turned-film,
Molly Shannon stars as nerdy Catholic schoolgirl
Mary Katherine Gallagher, dreaming of superstardom.
She enters a talent contest with hopes of winning a part as a film extra.
Will Ferrell will play the hunk, Sky Corrigan. Elaine Hendrix
will also star as Evian, a rival, and Emmy Laybourne will be
Mary Katherine's best friend, Helen. Harland Williams and Tom Green will also
star. Bruce McCulloch directs from Steven Koren's script.
Capsule Review: Superstar doesn't break the horrible streak of SNL-based
films. It has the usual malady: a premise that seems worn thin in ninety seconds,
much less ninety minutes. Harland Williams steals the show, however, as the
mysterious loner at the high school.
[PG-13 - sex-related humor and language] (Paramount)
