Lily Tomlin gets lost on her way to a funeral in "Procession." Jason Alexander is a screenwriter at the end of his rope in the musical short "Not Your Time."

Critic Reviews for Stars In Shorts
It doesn't deliver a consistently enjoyable experience, because the quality of this compilation varies wildly.
Most of the shorts in this ambitious package are worthy of expanding for their own sakes.
Overall, this is a decent little collection, and worth seeing for those seeking something different.
A very mixed bag of short films, but Lily Tomlin, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Judi Dench and Penny Ryder make it worth catching.
...a package of short films starring big-name stars, and it's hard to think how else you would get to see so many doing what they do best in a single evening...
They showcase not just the acting chops of Colin Firth, Lily Tomlin, Julia Stiles and others, but some fresh writing-directing talents, too.
"Stars in Shorts" lives up to its title by offering the likes of Judi Dench, Colin Firth, Jason Alexander, Keira Knightley, Lily Tomlin, Kenneth Branagh and Julia Stiles in films ranging from eight to 25 minutes.
The performances in tandem with the writing take most of these seven movies to interesting places.
Its most consistent pleasures derive more from its performances than from storytelling.
None of the seven shorts here is worth a single, well-made feature.
Four of the seven short films are worthwhile. That sounds like wait-for-video to me.
This assemblage of star-filled shorts makes for a generally rewarding grab bag.
The celebs are having a holiday good time, even when the stories aren't particularly distinguished.
There's no consistent theme to the seven segments other than "starring famous people," hence the wink-wink title.
